At CES 2022, numerous Italian startups present themselves to the world with innovative products and services in the fields of industry, artificial intelligence and Space: here are ASC27, Picosats, Proxima Robotics, RIC3D, TUC and Xnext by Riccardo Robecchi published on 06 January 2022, at 17:01 in the Startup channel MadeinITArea Science ParkInnovation Factory There are many Italian startups that are active in the development of artificial intelligence solutions and just as many are those that focus on industry and technological innovation in this (large) sector. There are also some, such as Picosats, which are bringing innovation to the world of Space. At CES 2022 there are as many as six exhibiting their products and ideas in these areas to the international audience, thanks to the Italian mission and the support of Innovation Factory, incubator of Area Science Park, and ITA, the Italian Trade Agency. ASC27: artificial intelligence and cybersecurity for companies ASC27 is a startup based in Rome that offers various products and services in the field of artificial intelligence, with specific solutions for cybersecurity. The company offers services for different use cases, from extracting data from video content to checking compliance with social distancing. ASC27 also produces physical devices: among these are Metrology360, a video camera that takes 360 ° shots to obtain information on the site of a traffic accident using AI to carry out the analysis of the scene and reconstruct it digitally, and AuthSPiNe, a device for authenticate securely. The company is a partner of NVIDIA’s Inception Program, which supports startups engaged in developing products and services that use AI, among other things. Picosats: small satellites for tomorrow From devices that only states and a few other realities could afford, satellites are becoming more and more objects that even relatively small companies can afford. The Italian startup Picosats, founded in Trieste, promises to change the dynamics of this market with modular nano-satellites with (relatively) reduced cost and shorter development times than traditional ones. We had already had the opportunity to interview the CEO of Picosats, who had told us how the light modules model of her company can revolutionize the sector and make it more accessible, more performing and more sustainable. Proxima Robotics: autonomous navigation applied to robots Born as a spin-off of the University of Pisa, Proxima Robotics aims to offer a system to make autonomous navigation of robots possible in various fields, from logistics to cleaning, passing through agriculture and buildings. The company has already collaborated with other Italian companies in the development of the first products, including: NexBot, an automatic robot for cleaning large surfaces such as airports and hospitals; Jobot, a robot for moving small loads inside warehouses; MecGeos, which takes care of transporting the instrumentation for topographic surveys. RIC3D: solutions for medicine and tourism RIC3D operates in the medical field and, secondarily, in the tourism one with specially developed software. The Lucano-Milanese startup is active in the development of solutions for medicine, from databases created specifically to archive radiographs to the creation of digital models of organs, which can then be printed in 3D to obtain faithful reproductions on which to plan or train before operations. The company has also created Tratoo, a duo of applications for smartphones and websites to create personalized itineraries for tourists who follow specific interests such as, for example, food and wine or that for fashion. Within the platform, local companies can promote their business, also thanks to the help of augmented reality. TUC Technology: USB for the automotive sector TUC Technology has developed a platform to centralize the electronics within vehicles, thus simplifying their development. In fact it is a standard for making the internal components of cars modular: for example, with the TUC system it is possible to have vehicles in which the seats and electronic devices such as dashboards and infotainment are easily removable and replaceable. TUC’s stated goal is to become the equivalent of the USB standard in the automotive world, thanks to the fact that the connector it developed combines structural support, power supply and data exchange, thus significantly simplifying the design of the various components. and their installation inside vehicles. Xnext: the new generation of X-ray inspection systems Xnext deals with producing inspection systems based on X-rays that (also) exploit artificial intelligence to identify anomalies, for example in the industrial production of food or drugs, or in recycling some materials. The devices produced by Xnext, called XSpectra, exploit the AI to automatically identify anomalies such as, for example, the stones in the packages of pitted olives, or residues of materials within industrial processes. XSpectra is the result of more than ten years of research and almost 15 million euros of investments, thanks also to the support of the Horizon 2020 program of the European Union. Some startups that are part of the Italian mission were not physically present at Eureka Park. The difficulties related to the health emergency did not allow some entrepreneurs to go to Las Vegas, but it still seemed right to mention all the startups that followed the growth path organized by Innovation Factory and ITA.
