This project, in its current stage, already has prototypes that are demonstrating the partial working of the system regarding concepts, computerized presentation of marketing, functional and technological aspects, business plan - focusing specifically on one of the possible markets -, some software already developed and a video of the system in action. Phase 2 will be executed in two stages. The first will complement the existing prototypes, demonstrating the complete working of the system. As a result, we will have a set of devices and accessories that will allow for the control and automation of some home- models, giving them “intelligence” and dynamic distance control (telecontrol). This grouping will then permit, in parallel with the continuation of this phase, a demonstration of the system to possible partners and clients in various segments of the industry and the market, maturing and strengthening their strategic, commercial and marketing aspects, as well as the aspects of working and technological validation. The second stage of this phase will develop the same prototypes, now in a pre-industrial phase. Or in other words, how they should be marketed. In this stage, a standard circuit will also be developed that can be integrated into any electric/electronic device, making it universally distance controllable by any programmable device, using different processors, operational systems, programming language and interfaces. Then at the end of this second stage, it is expected to have three mobile home-models available for demonstration, as well as one fixed model for testing and development. At the end of the project we will have, in a pre-industrial form: a universal chip Suit; a set of basic suit accessories; a group of outstanding residential devices, for demonstration purposes; and control software.
