Our consulting and development services are based on many years of professional experience in the fields of Internet of Things (IoT) and Home and Building Automation, often on behalf of well-known companies in the electrical industry and international organizations.
This experience also includes participation in research projects of the European Commission and national institutions.
The look at the market and the product
Our goal is the development of market-driven and innovative products in the service of our customers. In order to achieve these goals, we orient ourselves on the best software technologies for the respective project (see below).
The collage on the left shows some of the topics we are dealing with.
We can support the development of software products in all phases, from idea to delivery.
KNX is a worldwide standardized protocol for building automation according to ISO/IEC 14543-3 (international), CENELEC EN 50090 and CEN EN 13321-1 (European) and GB/T 20965 (Chinese).
We are a member of KNX ourselves and have contributed to the development of KNX technology. For this reason, we can provide particularly qualified contributions for KNX projects.
We do not develop hardware for KNX devices, but we can offer for example the development of gateways, ETS apps and application programs, also using the new KNX Secure technology.
Internet of Things
The Internet of Things (IoT) is based on technical protocols. In the beginning we monitored pumping stations, then came the worldwide monitoring and control of corrosion protection stations along oil and gas pipelines. M-Bus, KNX, and other technical protocols were added.
Today, the challenge for us is to realize business processes in the cloud that integrate Internet-enabled devices in buildings and deliver the best value to users.
The use of language assistants such as Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant is an important aspect of this. Preventive maintenance and optimization of delivery processes are other important examples.
The technological basis
The collage on the left side shows some terms from the software technology, which is in use with us depending upon project.
Our location is inspiring: Agentilo GmbH has its office in the PRE-Park Kaiserslautern, an industrial park with around 100 IT and technology companies and a total of almost 2500 workplaces (Wikipedia).
In the immediate vicinity are research and development centers of well-known companies, the Technical University of Kaiserslautern, the University of Kaiserslautern, the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI), the Fraunhofer Institute for Industrial Mathematics (ITWM), and the Fraunhofer Institute for Experimental Software Engineering (IESE).
Together with the University of Kaiserslautern, DFKI and some industrial partners, Agentilo is currently participating in the project "LiSA: Light and Solar Management with Active and Model Predictive Components".
The project is funded by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy and aims to enable the most energy-efficient operation of office and administrative buildings while taking user satisfaction into account. The focus is here on the control of facades and lighting.
