Meet the companies
Exobotics’ long term vision is to make space exploration accessible for all by lowering the barriers to entry in terms of cost, skill and time required to develop applications in low-Earth orbit and beyond.
Made up of young scientists, engineers and thinkers from Cambridge and Cornwall, Exobotics is developing the next generation of small-satellite sub-systems with next level performance focused on practicality and reliability. Their hybrid solution can be integrated with all current lunar landers and has a higher payload mass/volume fraction at a lower mass than any alternative solution in the market. Discover how support from Aerospace Cornwall has helped bring this innovative project to life.
Data Duopoly is a tech startup focused on managing visitor flow in and around tourist attractions using their innovative app which utilises satellite data. Their system can help direct people to less busy areas of an attraction, assist in the observing of social distancing as well as distribute emergency information.
Sechoia Ltd is a UK based, self-funded, tech start-up, aiming to develop disruptive technology. They have recently developed a proof-of-concept software that combines depth imaging, edge computing and machine learning to create real-time data analytics. Join this session to find out more about this exciting proof of concept and how it is set to help with spatial planning.
BILDr provides data processing systems for marine surveys, using information collected from submersibles along side a suite of data managment and hosting solutions. This includes seismic data used to identify safe sites for the deployment of wind farms. This talk see’s Tony highlighting how support from Aerospace Cornwall has helped bring this AI solution to life.
Bluefruit has been innovating in edge AI, producing a machine learning solution that achieves high levels of accuracy with small amounts of sample data – one of the main barriers to applied AI. In this short session, Nigel will be discussing their Audio Classification Equipment (ACE) project.
