Riga, LV-1006


EDI provides services in the following technologies: Artificial intelligence, Connectivity, Big data, IoT, Mobility technologies and enterprise mobility, Robotics, Advanced Manufacturing Technologies.

EDI in Riga, Latvia is a non-profit public research institute founded in 1960. Currently, EDI is specializing in the development of Smart Embedded Cooperative Systems in fields of: health, mobility, space, production, social challenges, safety and security. EDI has more than 80 researchers working on innovative technologies in electronics and computer science. At the moment, main fields of competence includes signal and image processing (incl. AI), development of cyber-physical and embedded systems, intelligent transport systems (incl. connected and automated driving), hardware and software prototyping, system integration, wireless sensor networks (incl. IoT), intelligent devices, development of sensors, radars, biometrics, wearables, precise timing, robotics, etc.

EDI has implemented several national projects with local industries (incl. SMEs) thus supporting companies (e.g. KEPP EU, HansaMatrix, Square Audio, Squalio, Lattelecom, etc.) to digitaize their industry.

On January 1st, 2019 EDI started H2020 IA project called TRINITY which aim to create a network of multidisciplinary and synergistic local digital innovation hubs (DIHs) composed of research centers, companies, and university groups that cover a wide range of topics that can contribute to agile production: advanced robotics as the driving force and digital tools, data privacy and cyber security technologies to support the introduction of advanced robotic systems in the production processes.

EDI has an unique state-of-the-art infrastructure to support local and international SMEs. For example, EDI has a 100+ node heterogeneous sensor network and wireless network testbed distributed around 7-floor building for validation and research in sensor network protocols & wireless network protocols. Additionally 50 mobile nodes are available on site for on site deplyments (e.g. in customers factory). Besides, EDI has WSN hardware prototyping test bench EDImote developed with flexibility of prototyping, performance monitoring and hardware and software debug assistance in mind (enabling fast prototyping for virtually any hardware). Also, high performance workstations for computation, signal processing, visualization and design (Matlab, Simulink, Labview, Quartus, Tanner Tools Pro, etc.) are available for use. PCB designing and simulation tools Altium Designer and fast prototyping systems (LPKF ProtoMat-S62, LPKF MiniContac-RS, Xytronic-IR620 Preheater, Unox thermal equipment) for multilayer PCB design. Laboratory equipment: Spectrum analyzers up to 20GHz (e.g. ROHDE&SCHWARZ-FSU8), Arbitrary waveform signal generators (e.g. Agilent-N6031A), Digital oscilloscopes up to 50GHz (e.g. 25GSPS Tektronix DPO70604). Mixed signal oscilloscopes (e.g. Tektronix MSO4104, Tektronix MSO4032). Portable spectrum analyzers and oscilloscopes, etc. Last but not least, EDI has High Performance Computer (HPC) with dozens of Nvidia GPUs; Vibration and shock test platform, climate test chamber, Professional IR/Thermal camera, Professional 3D printer, automated-driving car platform, etc. More:
