Technological education internationalization: Connecting Brazilian students with the world.

Giving access to labs, research groups, and international undergraduate and postgraduate courses has been the goal of our work. Since we created "LabTec@" back in 2014 until now, internationalization deeds permeate the objectives of the "ITMetro" development team.
We are now with research students from ISEP, located in Porto, Portugal. They are Electrotechnical Engineer students, and also with the eminence of the participation of other researchers and students in postgraduation programs.
Follow the internationalization actions and learn more about the Integration Project between Brazil and Finland made in 2016 and the Technical Cooperation with the ISEP/GCAD in 2018.

You installed photovoltaic panels and your energy bill was not zero!

An Energy Potential Audit or Analysis allows one to know the profiles of energy generation and consumption in a building. It also allows you to prospect or analyze the energy capacity of the land and/or building.
It can be done previously, or after the conclusion of an energy cogeneration project based on solar and/or wind, in order to guarantee the efficiency of the project or installation. With appropriate methodology and equipment, it is possible to prove the energy generation and consumption capacity of your land, building, or project. Follow this development story and get to know SAP-Eolic, SAP-Energi and the APNE Methodology.

Is it possible to use electric bicycles as an aerobic exercise?

Imagine an onboard computer capable of managing your health and the whole electrical system of your electric bicycle!
Control the energy performance of the electric bicycle, its torque, batteries charging and discharging, maximum range and distance covered, estimate traveling time schedules while looking after the rider's health, generating data about its physical exertion, aerobic capacity, and any cardiological changes. Having all that plus the capability to store data from it, and allowing you to set goals and financially analyze your bicycle usage as a means of transportation.

Biomedical Instrumentation: Using metrology in healthcare applications and instrumentation to take care of our life.

Performing research and developing instruments and biomedical systems are some of the ITM's actuation areas. Technological advances in data acquisition and signal processing are being used and applied in intelligent instrument conception to analyze biological signals. With artificial intelligence strategies, we're using embedded machine learning in microcontrollers to boost signal conditioning, allowing innovations in biomedical instrumentation. Find out more about the "Esteto-i" project, an intelligent stethoscope capable of recording, condition, and analyzing signals heard from the patient, assisting in the quick detection of breathing disorders. Also, get to know the QoS project, a system that contributes to sleep quality.
