Xsilon successfully bid in 2014 for a £500,000 grant from InnovateUK’s Future Energy Management in Buildings funding call. The consortium that was awarded the grant has now been reconfigured, with Xsilon now acting as the project lead and with the addition of PhotonStar as a new partner in the project. The association with Manchester Metropolitan University continues as well.
The project starts in May this year and will run to the end of 2016. The project focus will be on developing an independent implementation of the emerging Thread protocol, to run over Xsilon’s Hanadu In-Home M2M connectivity, interacting with lighting and sensor units around entire buildings.
