Technology

Our Technology addresses an existing control problem with a disruptive approach. Incumbent solutions based on fixed parameters are surpassed by the unique Adaptive Predictive Control developed by ADEX. Thus it brings new levels of flexibility, performance and accuracy on the control of industrial facilities never ever known before.

This technology is the result of:

  • Several years of Research in centers such as MIT, University of Alberta or the University of Grenoble.
  • Development of innovation projects in collaboration with big corporations all over the World

The Technology has been granted with different patents in USA, EU and India among other regions. Different papers, articles and books have been written explaining the technical differences of our technology.

All those algorithms and expertise have been packed in the form of a Self-Tuning Artificial Intelligence platform.

Today it has been installed on +70 plants and it is commercialized worldwide through ADEX and its partners.
