Casablanca – June 24th, 2019
École Marocaine des Sciences de l’Ingénieur (EMSI) has presented its multi-award-winning innovations to peers from around the world at the American Innovation Fair. It is the first time that a team from Morocco has taken part in the Silicon Valley fair.
École Marocaine des Sciences de l’Ingénieur (EMSI) has presented its innovation projects in the US. A team of engineers took part in the American Innovation Fair, which was held June 24 to 26 in Silicon Valley. It was the first time that a team from Morocco had been invited to the fair, taking their place alongside peers from 25 other countries.
EMSI has recently won a list of international awards and medals, including the Korea Electric Power Corporation’s KEPCO Award of Excellence, the CAI (China Association of Inventions) Special Prize, the BOI (Beijing Online Invention) Special Prize, TIA (Taiwan Invention Association) Special Award, TIA (Taiwan Invention Association) Inventor Award and the Special Prize of the Inventors Association of Thailand.
The EMSI team has distinguished themselves through three projects, SmartTraffic, Smarty Factory 4.0 and Multiview-Screen. Their SmartTraffic innovation is a decentralised system based on radiofrequency identification and image processing that is able to manage urban traffic in an optimal and intelligent way. It identifies vehicles in a state of emergency, for example, firefighters, ambulances, and the police, and controls traffic lights dynamically.
Smarty Factory 4.0 is a multi-interfacial, multi-protocol, multi-industry communication device for data acquisition in the form of ModBus frames and analog/ digital inputs/ outputs.
As for the Multiview-Screen project, it is a screen with multiple views that allows several people to watch different programmes on the same television. Each viewer can follow a single programme across the entire screen depending on which position they are viewing from. The device requires no special glasses or other accessories.
EMSI has now taken part in a long list of major competitions nationally and internationally, collecting more than 75 awards along the way.
