More and better aspargus

IoT Smart Applications: Deepfield

Deepfield Robotics,a daughter of Bosch Group, is focusing on the development of systems to enhance agriculture. They have created an intelligent system that could be very helpful to farmers cultivating temperature sensitive crops such as asparagus. Sensors measure the temperatures in different depths in the loom and transmit them several times a day via cloud. The farmer can regulate the temperature with the help of different types of foils. In pilot projects the system has proven to be very effective in increasing harvests and lowering waste.


IoT Smart Applications: qGoQgo

No more waiting

As everybody knows the other waiting lines in a shop or a ticket booth are always faster. The Austrian company Qgo has found a way to dodge this ancient adage:
they have developed a system that enables users to quickly find out the current waiting times for different ski lifts online. Based on this information clients can choose the route that will give them maximum skiing and minimum waiting time – a competitive advantage for the lift operator. The system will also be available for amusement parks and events. Supermarkets can’t be far behind.


A supermarket minus the staff

IoT Smart Applications: Narafar“Necessity is the mother of invention” – another proof for this saying can be found in the innovative shop Näraffärin Viken, Sweden. When it’s founder Robert Ilijason ran out of food for his small child and all shops were closed or too far away, he decided to start this new concept: in the small self-service shop people scan the products they buy via smartphoneapp and the bill gets paid by credit card. This allows clients to get all things necessary for everyday live 24 hours a day.


Gillette Box

Cutting-edge razor blade distribution

The times when traveling salesman used to bring razorblades to your door are long gone. But they might return in a much more modern way: owners of the new Gillette Box can simply push a button when the stock of sharp blades runs low, thus automatically placing an order on the company’s web shop. A new package of blades will then be sent out to the customer by mail. Tests in Germany with this system have already demonstrated its feasibility, and the company plans to widen its scope to include other replaceable items such as diapers.

IoT Smart Applications: Pepper Robot


A robot shows its emotions

In human interaction emotions are important, but what about robots? This automaton goes by the name of “Pepper”, and it is capable of interpreting a smile, a frown, the tone of voice, as well as non-verbal language such as the angle of ones head, for example. Pepper was designed to make his interaction with human beings as natural and intuitive as possible. The robot may be used as a companion for home, but also as an attraction at points of sale – the French railway SNCF has already made use of that. Developers may add new functions to the ones that were given to Pepper by its french creators at Aldebaran.

IoT Smart Applications: Evertracker Prozess-Ketten-Optimierung


Locating in real-time

When things are being delivered to recipients, it is often very important to be able to tell exactly when they will arrive. The German startup Evertracker develops devices and services that give very precise information on the current position of a shipment. Founder Marc Schmitt says: “Evertracker can make process chains completely transparent for every enterprise. Our system is able to integrate the autonomous communication between things deeply into existing structures of enterprises.”


Do you know where your dog is?

Many people have very strong feelings for their pets – especially dogs and cats. When animals are lost, they would go to great lengths to find them – but less than 20 percent of lost pets are eventually retrieved. This smart tracker from tractive will provide the current location of a pet via GPS-Signal, accessible in a smartphone-app. As long as the animal is wearing the tracker on a collar, it is very easy to find it’s position. The tracker is available at 150 Euros, the App-service is about four Euros a month.

Home, sweet home

Many different companies offer home automatization solutions but the variety of systems and standards can be confusing for customers. Enter Apple: to promote their hub for home automatization and remote control that goes by the name HomeKit the company has teamed up with vendors such as Elgato, Ecobee, Lutron, iHome and Insteon. This alliance hopes to lead to better acceptance of SmartHome-Systems in a broader community. Will Apple be able to repeat the success of the iPhone? Or will established companies more at home with this technology be the winners?

Salted Venture

These shoes aren’t just made for walking …

For performance in sports, good footwork can be crucial. In golf for example it is impossible to perform a perfect swing when you are not standing in good balance. IOFIT, developed by Korean Startup Salted Venture in cooperation with Samsung, is a sports shoe that utilizes a combination of pressure sensors and a coaching app to improve its user’s balance and body posture in order to enhance the player’s fitness routine or golf swing. Currently the startup is actively seeking business opportunities with footwear  companies for worldwide distribution.

Like a glove

Made to measure

One of the biggest obstacles for onlineselling of clothes is that there is no way to try them on. But a solution may be at hand: like a glove, a company from Israel has developed what they call “smart leggings” that come with integrated sensors that measure the body dimensions precisely once it is put. The data is then transferred to an app that then finds brands, styles and sizes that fit perfectly. These “one-size-fits-all“ leggings can be preordered at a price of 65 Euros.

IoT Smart Applications: GES GSE-Tracker


Managing fleets of trailers

Every big airport around the world operates thousands of trailer carts to move luggage and cargo to and from aircraft. A lot of work and time goes into locating each item getting it to where they have to be at a precise time. Schiphol Airport in Amsterdam now works with a system called GSETrack (GSE stands for Ground Support Equipment) developed by Unagrid.Every cart is equipped with a tracker which knows it’s position by GPS. It broadcasts its location information to neighbored trackers that relay these messages in the same way. Thanks to this selforganizing network each trailer can be located anytime – saving the airport a lot of money and energy.
