BasedOn is a software project founded on the studies of a researcher from the University of Gothenburg with the goal of letting organizations derive more value from internally generated information and decisions made in the past. This is achieved through a decision centric focused solution that integrates the preparations, decision and follow-up stages, into one intuitive process. By having the right information available at the right time, more efficient decisions can be made within organizations.
Our patent pending method, invented by Chalmers researchers, allows one to detect and study very small particles without the need of any labeling techniques which is seen as an obstacle in current methods. This open doors for new research in several fields where super resolution microscopy is used, such as biomedicine and nanoparticle studies.
LOOP Attachment Technology
Utilizing patent pending technology, we work with attachment methods for fibrous materials. Our method is reversible, and acts as a temporary seam that binds the target materials together. This opens up for new possibilities, especially since unlike with existing options no manipulation of the target material is needed for the technology to work.
We plan on replacing current cotton textile dyeing techniques with a pigment-based colouring method. By controlling the electrostatic interactions between fabrics and pigment particles, dyeing and stripping processes are facilitated. Colouring and de-colouring can thus be done in a cyclic manner, which opens up for many recycling possibilities. Bringing this technology into the market will ultimately help the textile industry reduce water expenditure and lower the release of toxic chemicals into the environment.
Industrial fluids help machines operate smoothly. Today, the monitoring of these fluids is infrequent and the usage is suboptimal, which may lead to machine breakdowns, safety hazards, environmental waste, and health issues. WAVI offers real-time measurement and predictive analysis of industrial fluids. This tells you when they need to be replaced and avoids any unnecessary or delayed replacements.
The Swedish government has a goal of eliminating non-renewable energy sources by 2030. In Sweden, there exists approximately 40000 water streams ready to be used as energy sources. With a patented technology, Fluvius Robur, is developing a multi-stage turbine to increase the efficiency of small hydropower plants working in water streams with various flow. The goal is to create a solution to be installed in water streams for SME’s and private investors to generate their own electricity.
Lucero will provide the first AI-automated, non-contact micromanipulation system that will be completely accessible to every biologist in the world. With a click of a button, our solution will allow biologists to manipulate and analyze single cells without damaging them. Working with single cells is especially important in understanding cell heterogeneity and observing cell-to-cell interactions in real-time. These experiments are thought to hold the next keys to improving the fundamental research towards diseases like cancer. Lucero’s vision is to catalyze the global transition to personalized healthcare by providing a tool that empowers every biologist in the world to perform single-cell analyses.
For the engineer tasked with assessing LEDs, Lumway is a platform that provides a vast database of LED components for comparison together with a virtual lab, where the engineer can specify the exact operating conditions of the LED project. This is important as most of the LEDs technical parameters are dynamic, and vary with temperature and current, something that becomes a key issue when trying to compare components today using analog datasheets with static information. Another key issue is trust - which datasheets contain information that actually match reality? Lumway partners with trusted testing institutes in order to provide data that is not only validated but also compatible with the most popular light simulation software on the market today.
Our technology uses nanoantennas to capture energy in the visible light spectrum to produce heat. Together with researchers from Gothenburg University, we aim to establish a new class of solar thermal energy collectors that are optically transparent, highly efficient, light-weight, and are available for use in a multitude of contexts ranging from industrial-scale energy generation to the consumer-focused sustainable energy solutions in architecture and beyond.
Potato Plastic is a form of biodegradable bioplastic made from potatoes and water. With this plastic, you can make cutlery, bags and other single-use items. While items made of traditional plastic will last for 450 years, Potato Plastic will dissolve in two months if it ends up in nature. Since these items are normally used around 20 minutes, we think it is unreasonable for them to last that much longer than the purpose intended. Potato Plastic will never be as good as plastic - that is the whole point.
