PowerAPI

Spirals project-team (Inria Lille - Nord Europe) -

PowerAPI is a middleware toolkit to build software-defined powermeters that can monitor the power consumption of applications running on one or several machines. PowerAPI targets software developers to support the identification of energy hotspots in their code and data center administrators to provide a fine-grained power monitoring solution without investing in hardware Devices.

Crystal Super Grid

Artelys, Tao project-team (Inria Saclay - Île-de-France) -

Why is this transmission line used more in one context and less in another? Which production assets prevail depending on the period?
Artelys Crystal Super Grid has been designed to provide synthetic quantitative indicators adapted to each problem. Artelys Crystal Super Grid comes with a wide range of views, aggregated or detailed, which allow the comparison of energy strategies and also the optimization of power system assets.
Thanks to the collaboration with Inria-TAO, a new feature has been added into Crystal Super Grid: the joint optimization of production, storage, and transmission capacities under risk constraints.

Green DIET

Avalon project-team (Inria Grenoble - Rhône-Alpes) -

DIET is a middleware allowing plug-in development for job dispatching in data centres based on energy-related criteria. In case of energy consumption peaks, jobs can bemigrated dynamically to another node. DIET offers a multi-criteria and dynamic dispatching method that is extensible to large computing systems. DIET is integrated into the Nueva platform, in collaboration with NewGeneration-SR.

OPTI CLIMB

Safety Line - Commands project-team (Inria Saclay - Île-de-France) -

Aircraft black boxes are full of valuable information about real aircraft performance. Machine learning is applied to this data to model real aircraft. Based on these results the optimization algorithm developed by COMMANDS is used to optimize fuel consumption, while acting on aircraft airspeed to reduce fuel consumption.

MECSYCO

Madynes project-team (Inria Nancy - Grand Est) -

MECSYCO is a modeling and simulation platform for complex systems such as Smart Grids or more generally Smart*. For example, the simulations can be used to explore diverse scenarios of future usage, and hence the energy and infrastructure needs in a Smart City. This helps in choosing suitable hardware and planning necessary investment. Various problems and formalisms can be integrated, taking into account the point of view of the domains under consideration. In short, MECSYCO is a modular system that works by coupling heterogeneous "bricks" that come from very different domains: physical systems (electrical, mechanical, thermodynamics...), Computer Science and IT (communication networks, embedded systems, information systems), environmental systems (climate, pollution, ecosystems) and human or social systems (individual or collective behaviors).

RIOT

Infine research team (Inria Saclay - Île-de-France) -

RIOT is an open source operating system that provides standard protocols for embedded systems.
RIOT allows the development of applications that collect sensor data and transmit it to a central node (e.g. a server). This data can then be used for smart energy management, such as room temperature adjustment.
RIOT is specially designed for embedded systems, which are strongly constrained in memory and energy. Further, RIOT can easily be ported to different hardware devices and follows the latest evolution of IP standards (6LoWPAN, RPL,...)
RIOT applications can readily be tested in the FIT IoT-LAB, which provides a large-scale infrastructure facility with 3000 nodes suitable for remotely testing small wireless sensor devices.

Bocop

Commands project-team (Inria Saclay - Île-de-France) -

The Commands team's identification and optimization tools are integrated in the Opti-Climb software, developed by Safety Line, which provides pilots with optimized flight plans. This trajectory optimization can be performed by local (direct approach) or global (dynamic programming) methods, and uses plane models (aerodynamics, thrust) identified from the data recorded during flights. Identification and optimization are done with Bocop (www.bocop.org), an open source toolbox developed by the Commands team since 2010.

Urban planning models

Steep research team (Inria Grenoble - Rhône-Alpes) -

Steep provides decision making solutions as a set of analysis and forecasting tools based on software simulation, optimization, and visualization, dedicated to decision making at local (sub-national) scales.
These mathematical tools and software are based on « Land use and transportation integrated » (LUTI) models, in order to provide for systemic modeling and simulation of the relationship between environmental, economic and social factors. They also help to design and evaluate transport or development projects to meet the challenges of "sustainable cities" imposed by the scarcity of fossil fuels, low economic growth, and climate change.

Green next-generation distributed computing

DeFab, Avalon project-team (Inria Grenoble - Rhône-Alpes) -

DeFab developed a water-heater with integrated computing modules. The heat produced by those modules is used to heat the water. Specific job dispatching algorithms assure a regular heat supply for the water-heater. These algorithms have been developed jointly with the Inria team Avalon.

Metis

Tao project-team (Inria Saclay - Île-de-France) -

Metis is a,tool for simulating large-scale electric systems. By doing so, it allows to evaluate different investment strategies: is it useful or not to build a new transmission line or to invest in new wind turbine farms? More generally, Metis helps in optimizing the electric infrastructure on a European level. Metis is based on black-box optimization methods and machine learning. In collaboration with the company Artelys, Metis has been tested on real test scenario.
