Experience in R&D National Programmes and Pre-accession Programmes (instruments financed by the EU to assist Romania in its preparations for joining the EU) as a partner and consortium coordinator.
Beia has completed more than ten National and EU R&D projects which have resulted in international projects such as “SMIC APL”- an integrated communication system for public management of central and local administration, “SAWHAU” – a hybrid wireless access system with unique addressing, “REDICT” – an FP7 EU-financed projects, also Eureka and Eurostars projects “CLOUD CONSULTING”, ”NMSDMON” and “FAIR”, projects financed from the “National Plan for Research, Development and Innovation” including: TERRA_RO,LOCOMAX, MITEAPL, SAWHAU, SEDCC, and finally, projects financed through the “Research of Excellence Programme”: ARTEMIS, ROIP-Wireless-Telemetry, HIBRIVOLT, PRO-EURO-TIC.
The company has a good relationship in Romanian industry (large companies and SMEs) and in Romanian R&D area, such as: “Politehnica” University of Bucharest, Research Institute for Artificial Intelligence (Romanian Academy), Romanian Space Agency, National Institute for Research-Development in Electrical Engineering.
As previous work – Beia develops an agriculture monitoring platform for monitoring ecological parameters and environmental telemetry: We use different types of RTUs and Sensors that monitor and transmit important information such as temperature, precipitation, wind speed, soil condition and leaf wetness from selected locations. The RTUs will transmit sensor data to our cloud platform where we can conveniently process the site-specific weather and soil data in near real-time, display it in our web-based visualization application and get detailed recommendations when and where to spray and how much to irrigate – resulting in optimized yield, quality, and income. In previous approaches, RTUs were implemented in most cases on a local server, and no company could aggregate enough sensor data to consider automating the treatment process.
Beia Consult has experience with telemetry systems for Irrigation Management (including sensors for measuring soil moisture, monitor water uptake and calculate evapotranspiration), Accurate Water Data (water sensors for hydrographical purposes, from precipitation to water level monitoring of lakes, rivers, wells) and Efficient Water Management (leak and burst detection, pressure, flow, level and well monitoring).
Beia has skills in sensor networks for real-time monitoring (including seismic activity, radioactivity, tsunamis, marine/maritime activities, floods) and manages an ongoing project Joint Applied Research Projects “SaRaT-IWSN” to design and to validate at experimental model level a new generation of Scalable Radio Transceiver for Instrumental Wireless Sensor Networks (IWSN) for neutrino detection and alerting.
Also, Beia has experience with software for Energy Remote Management System and manages an ongoing project “TELE-GREEN / Telemonitoring System equipment, installations and facilities for the production of clean energy” co-financed by the European Regional Development Funding.
Beia Consult has an ongoing Eurostars project “CLOUD CONSULTING / Cloud-based Automation of ERP and CRM software for Small Businesses”, approved in 2011 where the goal is to create new technologies which automate the configuration of Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) and Customer Relationship Management (CRM) software for the benefit of small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs). ERP systems are a key instrument to manage, report and control an SMB’s business. Cloud Consulting will use knowledge engineering, machine learning, and data mining technologies to automatically generate a basic configuration of an ERP package based on an interactive questionnaire filled out by the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of a small business, using an ERP system that is available as a Software as a Service (SaaS).
Also, Beia has started the following Eureka projects in the field of Cloud and IoT: FAIR (Friendly Application for Interactive Receiver), NMSDMON (Network Management System Development and Monitoring).
Big data management (Exalead/Cloudview partner): data collection & aggregation, data fusion (semantic integration of unstructured and/or structured content from diverse data silos), data mining module, a multimedia content analysis module, sentiment analysis module, SDK for cloud search-based applications. The company is aware of the institutional framework and also, the settling framework regarding the IT & Telecommunications field.
