BriX is a white label platform produced by phoops that provides its customers with a complete tailor-made service aimed at monitoring, analysing and improving the production sites’ performances. It relies on the microservice logic and has, at its core, two FIWARE based components (the CEF-Context Broker and the Cygnus State Change Subscriber) that are fundamental for the collection of contextual information. It supports the connectivity with several devices (e.g.: IoT sensors) and handles various types of data fluxes. Its modular structure is flexible enough to be adapted to the end-customers’ needs.
The platform is equipped with a data lake and a machine learning (ML-AI) module. On the one hand, it simultaneously stores energy-related data and contextual information (e.g.: weather forecast data). On the other hand, it uses that data to monitor and optimize energy production and consumption. The platform has two main endpoints: the first one is dedicated to the generic users who, thanks to a mobile application, can monitor in real time the performance of the energy system. The second one is instead dedicated to the technical operator/manager who can monitor simultaneously all the energy production sites.
Usage of Standards for data interoperability:
- shared data and metadata models (e.g. FIWARE Smart Data Models)
- open data formats (json, geojson, csv, …)
- standard API and protocols (REST API, HTTPS, NGSIv2, …)
- open integration platforms (CEF Context Broker, …)
