Innovation and R&D projects

Our company offers cutting-edge novel Research, Development, Innovation and Prototyping solutions for a variety of advanced digital transformation projects financed by public and private institutions in the European Union and in countries. The company implements the AI-driven digital twins of complex cyber-bio-physical systems that transform big data from multiple IoT and other data sources into high level information monitoring and controls services.

The solutions assist owners, managers, operators and other stakeholders in smart sustainable and efficient management and governance of their organizations, businesses and systems. The management and  company team have significant international experience in supporting Horizon 2020, UNIDO and other international innovation and capacity building projects.

The variety of effective application options of the digital twin in different industries and areas results from the strong underlying system science concepts, methodology and its implementation in the powerful software platform Pharos Navigator®. Its unique innovation features allow making the custom virtual models of complex socioeconomic-cyber-bio-physical systems existing the real world without programming. Linked with smart everything, IoT, various information systems, such computing models run in real time at edge or cloud computing enabling intelligent digital transformation of the big data streams.

There are several running prototype models developed and successfully applied for monitoring and controls in Smart Cities, Smart Manufacturing Plants for furniture and metal pipes, Argo-Industrial enterprises, eHealth monitoring of Smart Patient @ Smart Home, etc. Some examples of these apps are presented as demo apps at the portal pharosnavigator.com.
