The objective of the company with this project is to carry out the design, development and scaling of a new generation of radon gas detection devices, a radioactive gas spontaneously present in nature and the main cause of lung cancer in non-smokers, integrated with IoT (Internet of Things) technology. We want to contribute to the improvement of radon measurements as compared to the passive and classical methods that predominate in this sector. Some of the benefits that result from this project are continuous measurements in real time, external storage accessible through Internet and analysis of historical data. Obtaining reliable measurements from the first hour and with no need for previous network private infrastructure (Wifi, Bluetooth, etc.), as our device has its own communications system.
The project is being developed with the technical collaboration of the University of Cantabria, Telnet Redes Inteligentes, BQ, MACA Technologies and the Écija law firm, being its location the company’s facilities in Madrid.
The R&D project is being carried out with public aid, specifically, thanks to the granting of aid in the form of a subsidized loan and another part of a non-reimbursable tranche, by the Spanish Center for Technological and Industrial Development (CDTI).
