ECOMAI [ Ecological Motor Control and Predictive Maintenance with AI]
Electric motors are everywhere from laptop fans and dishwashers to industrial machinery, robots, public transport and more. A modern car can alone contain about 40 motors for various functions. But these valuable uses come at a cost. It has been calculated that electric motors account for 40% of worldwide power consumption and 20% of CO2 emissions1.
To address these issues, the ECOMAI project is developing technologies that enhance electric motor drive systems with an embedded AI system running on a specialized AI hardware platform. These technologies will optimise the efficiency and lifetime of electric motors, thereby reducing energy consumption and enabling development of more ‘ecological’ systems. They will also lead to market opportunities for applications
in numerous sectors including automotive, medical and transportation.
ECOMAI is a PENTA and EURIPIDES² Project
PENTA and EURIPIDES² are EUREKA cCusters whose purpose is to catalyse research, development, and innovation in areas of micro and nanoelectronics enabled systems, sub-systems, and applications. Guided by the Electronic Components & Systems (ECS) Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda (SRIA) key application areas and essential capabilities, the PENTA-EURIPIDES² programme enable the development of electronic solutions to help drive the digital economy through the formation of collaborative ecosystems along the ECS value chain. This creates the opportunity for rapid competitive exploitation and a strong impact on European societal challenges. PENTA-EURIPIDES² support SMEs, large corporations, research organisations and universities to work together in project consortia by facilitating access to funding, fostering collaborative work, and creating consortia in areas of mutual industrial and National interest.
PENTA and EURIPIDES² are operated by AENEAS.
