Presentation of SERUM with the Lord Mayor of Schwetzingen Dr. René Pöltl, KIT/IMI Institute Director Prof. Jivka Ovtcharova und the Main Developer of SERUM Hendro Wicaksono

and his team at Institute for Information Management in Engineering (IMI) directed by Prof. Ovtcharova have developed software called SERUM (Smart Energy and Resource Management) that efficiently controls the energy consumption. It collects building and environment data, analyzes the individual consumption behaviours  and registers behavioral anomalies. For example, if the lights are still on in the office after work, the system informs the user via smart phones. To achieve this, lights, windows, electrical appliances and heating systems had to be equipped with contacts or intelligent system components that can send signals. IMI scientists launched SERUM for a energy management system Project "KlimaRa" together with the IT service company ACTIMAGE and EnBW in  Schwetzingen town hall on January 16th, 2014.
