The SmartiLab research, development and innovation laboratory, part of the EMSI Group, won two silver medals at the BIXPO 2017 (Bitgaram International Exhibition of Electric Power Technology), which took place from the 1st to the 3rd of November in Gwangju, South Korea.

The BIXPO is one of the most important inventions competitions in the world, with more than 60,000 visitors and nearly 3,000 inventors, from more than 48 countries, specializing in electricity, energy, ICT, ecology and domestic sciences, says a statement issued by the Moroccan School of Engineering Sciences (EMSI).

The first silver medal was awarded to the project «EFMA», a new electromagnetic absorber based on a flexible and ultra-thin meta-material for the protection of the human body against electromagnetic radiation. This invention makes it possible to protect the human dermis against the harmful effects of electromagnetic radiation, namely ionization, and more particularly the thermal effect.

The second silver medal was awarded to the «Senstenna» project, a technological innovation belonging to 5th generation communication systems and especially the field of connected objects : Internet of Things (IoT). It is a device that uses the RF wave of the communication module to detect different types of physical quantities without resorting to a specific sensor.

The "Senstenna" technology was recently exploited by the "Smartilab EMSI" laboratory as a sensorless connected object for the SmartyPark smart and ecological parking management project, which has made Morocco one of the top four finalists at the World Cup of Innovation in Barcelona last March.
