Continuing with our commintment to increase the deployment of new technologies that enable improved quality of life of people, and households trying to make places more versatile and able to accommodate family needs, work and leisure for people that inhabit it, we are pleased to announce the project DHCOMPLIANT II, following the draft DH COMPLIANT I successfully developed between 2009 and 2011.

DHC2 Interconection Smart Appliances

For the development of this project a consortium has been created, It is composed of two companies and a university, to be able to carry out  this I+D+i  project . The consortium consists of the research group Infobótica University of Oviedo, the manufacturer of automation equipment Ingenium SL, and Engineering and Integration Company Domotica daVinci.

The DH Compliant II project ambition is to continue the development, implementation, certification and dissemination of a universal, open standard that allows the integration and implementation of service robots and smart appliances in digital home. This development will be leveraged in the standards that already exist in the areas of robotics, appliances and home automation, and communication standards already developed between the robots and automation services in the framework of the DH Compliant I. Finally being able to create a seamless and secure communication between computers of all three areas. This will allow the robot manufacturers and appliance manufacturers to adhere to this standard, so they could bring to market products quickly and easily to be integrated with in the systems of the Digital Home.

service Robots  and appliances equipped with this capability will carry a quality mark certifying that they have properly installed the universal standar, allowing the user to identify those products on the market and manufacturers to enhance their position against the competition. Thus providing devices also safe and efficient integration in the digital home.

Due to the relevance of the project It has financial support granted by The Department for Industry, Tourism and Commerce under the National Plan for Scientific Research, Development and Technological Innovation and Regional Development Fund ERDF “One way to Europe”.

Partner on the  DH COMPLIANT II proyect

Domotica daVinci, a company created in 2008, define as on of its strategic actions the R + D + i proyects. Engineering specialized in new technologies, carries out consultancy and training, creating projects for companies and public institutions nationally and internationally.

Infobótica Research Group, attached to the University of Oviedo, founded in 2007, lead by two professors from the department, Ignacio Gonzalez Alonso and Maria Pilar Almudena García Fuente, the group provides innovative solutions in R + D + i for companies involved in national and international projects, and their main line of research is service robotics.

Ingeniu was founded in Oviedo, Asturias. The initial idea was to manufacture home automation based on one of the two protocols already in market: KNX or LonWorks. However, the founding engineers realized that this option would be very expensive products, when the goal was to build more affordable home automation systems. The result was the creation of BUSing proprietary protocol, which has remained free of royalites and open to other manufacturers. In recent years the R & D deparmtent has developed an extensive range of about 100 BUSing devices available either in wired or wireless.

Domótica daVinci, empresa creada en el año 2008, define como acciones estratégicas las labores de I+D+i. Ingeniería especializada en nuevas tecnologías, realiza trabajos de consultoría y formación, generando proyectos para empresas e instituciones públicas a nivel nacional e internacional.

Grupo de investigación Infobótica, adscrito a la Universidad de Oviedo, creado en el año 2007, dirigido por dos profesores pertenecientes al departamento de informática,  Ignacio González Alonso y Mª Pilar Almudena García Fuente, el grupo aporta soluciones innovadoras en I+D+i a empresas, participa en proyectos nacionales e internacionales, y su principal línea de investigación es la robótica de servicios.

La empresa IngeniumSL fue fundada en 1998 en Oviedo, Asturias. La idea inicial fue fabricar productos que siguiesen uno de los dos protocolos ya en existencia: KNX y LonWorks. Sin embargo, los ingenieros fundadores se dieron cuenta que dicha opción haría muy costosos sus productos, cuando el objetivo era fabricar sistemas de domótica más asequibles. El resultado fue la creación de protocolo propio BUSing, el cual han mantenido libre de royalites y abierto a otros fabricantes. Durante los últimos años el departamento de I+D ha desarrollado una extensa gama de unos 100 dispositivos BUSing disponibles tanto en versión por cable como inalámbrica.
