LEGANÉS, MADRID, SPAIN – UC3M and SENSIA have embarked on an innovative venture, the MEMORy project, which focuses on AI-powered optical gas imaging to address global sustainability challenges, particularly in methane emissions reduction. This partnership represents a strategic collaboration that aims to revolutionize continuous monitoring (CM) technology, making significant strides in the fight against climate change and assisting countries and companies with meeting their emissions reduction goals.

Project Objectives:

  • Develop the next generation of AI-powered optical gas imaging (OGI) for CM.
  • Integrate novel T2SL Medium Wave IR (MWIR) detectors for enhanced infrared multispectral technology.
  • Quantify methane emissions of flaring gases via radiometric modeling.
  • Obtain third-party environmental compliance evaluation and certification.
  • Establish a cloud-based ecosystem for RedLook technology and integration with third-party systems.
  • Advance AI analytics with Convolutional Neural Networks (CNN) to achieve zero-false alarm level.

The anticipated outcome of MEMORy is the development of advanced technology to detect and quantify methane emissions accurately. The project will introduce an AI-powered OGI system, armed with state-of-the-art T2SL Medium Wave IR detectors, enabling precise monitoring of methane emissions in various industrial settings. The cloud-based ecosystem and AI analytics will enhance data management and facilitate a more efficient and reliable approach to emissions monitoring.
