This work has been developed under the scope of a broad research project called “Symbiotic technology for societal efficiency gains – Deus Ex Machina (DeM)“, which is a projects funded by the European Program and N2020 and has a total funding of nearly 3 Million Euros.
The project is coordinated by Fraunhofer Portugal and has different partners. One of the research lines has been developed by Fraunhofer Portugal, together with 3 groups from the UMinho, from the Electronics Engineering, Informatics Engineering, and Production and Systems Departments.
