Top Smart Building Startups
We build an AI solution that is trained to automatically change HVAC settings based on a calculated comfort index in real time. As a result, it leads to less energy consumption while keeping an optimal level of comfort.
Our solution complements very well to existing Building Management Systems and advanced data analytics tools/platforms. We are working with existing HVAC infrastructure of the building and don’t require an installation of additional hardware devices.
Overall, our approach allows fast (specific) building simulation, faster building integration process, shorter time to first money saved from energy optimisation and a possibility to create microclimates within one building for better comfort at reduced energy consumption.. .
PixMoving started at an autonomous driving company using universal modular chassis to provide different autonomous-driving delivery applications. Mainly focus on autonomous-driving retail, autonomous-driving vending, autonomous-driving coffee-shop, autonomous-driving roman restaurant, etc.
To PixMoving create a movement to space is essential rather than merely saving drivers from the vehicles. Now, PIX CITY a greater approach to modern world where increasing burdens have been carried by each individual and groups for decades.
Such burdens are traffic, pollution, housing prices, education, health, and etc… Nonetheless, the growth of grain from city are no longer boosting economy event in China, where the contribution of numerical newly developed towns and cities are gradually fading from their yearly GDP report.
PIX now is creating a new era of City where spaces not only moving autonomously on the ground, instead spaces is the city itself. It moves, grows, and creates.
various applications can be built inside different spaces which can move to designated location, grow on other spaces, and create community, town or city.. .
Seeing that over 90% of the time, we as human beings are inside a building, we are on a mission to reimagine the built world and transform it from a major contributor to carbon emissions, to a central solution of the climate change crisis. We do this by making products that reduce waste across the lifecycle of a buildings use.
Our skills lay in being able to marry technology and hardware to create smart, reconfigurable spaces, using modular walls that drastically cut the embodied and operational carbon emissions.. .
CHECKTOBUILD is born because of the necessities that the construction sector presents nowadays. Considering only construction megaprojects, this sector is moving around 7 trillion $ a year.
And following their previsions, megaprojects are going to grow a 109% in the next 10 years. It is extremely huge.
So, it is absolutely incoherent that 1200 construction workers die a year only in the Qatar market. It is threatening that construction supervisor is the #9 most dangerous job in the world.
And also, it does not make sense that with this giant market, almost the 98% of the megaprojects in the world finish their tasks overbudget and overtime nowadays. To help construction projects, their designing and planification are increasing the adoption of the BIM methodology.
The Building Information Modeling is revolutionizing the construction sector and it is planned to be used in the 98% of the megaprojects in the next 5 years. So CHECKTOBUILD is born based in two fundamental pillars: These necessities that we have explained and the big opportunity that BIM represents.
CHECKTOBUILD is a construtech startup that provides an autonomous inspection service and business intelligence for big construction projects. We do it integrating BIM models, that the construction companies must develop, with IoT and drone`s sytems by a software platform.
The waiter from lunch is on a shopping spree with your credit card. Uncle Walter forwards you a text that collects app emails & passwords.
Your doctors network compromised and now someone is using your insurance. With so much data and so many devices an attack playground has emerged for hackers and in finding data and devices causing problems.
Infiltron solves these issues by: Starting with 3FA. Securing data and devices regardless of connectivity.
Understanding system needs for strategic integration. Analyzing user behavior and giving corrective solutions.
Our customers are secure in legacy,smart, and hybrid systems.. .
Blue Life is a SaaS platform to help home-owners get their home improvement projects, done. The platform operates on milestones where payments are driven by completion of work.
Some of the key features are, • Tamper-proof smart contracts to drive approvals and payments. • Utilize escrow and line of credit to enable zero-constraints construction.
• Deliver near real time project updates, reasonable mediation, and consensual approval to trigger payments. • Web based service to offer project details, access to property inspectors, contractors and laborers..
Our real estate is responsible of nearly half the energy we consume and a third of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions. Therefore, if we are to tackle the future environmental risks, we must act today to improve the energy efficiency of our buildings.
To that end, SpectrumLab developed and is licensing the world’s first thermochromic coating applicable to outdoor surfaces such as roofs and façades. Such coatings turn white beyond a certain temperature, thus reflecting sunlight in summer and cooling the building, and turn black below said temperature, thus absorbing sunlight and warming the building.
This can save on average 15% energy in space heating and cooling every year!. .
Routegy makes it easy for people to interact with your business in a contactless, app-less way. Purchases, issues, requests, and feedback are made by interacting with QR codes, NFC tags, sensors, and smart speakers.
Collected information and context are sent to the destination of your choice: notifications via SMS or Slack, integrations with your existing software, and anything in-between; no code required.. .
ELON Smart Technologies
ELON is an engineering startup specialized in sensing places (rooms, buildings, streets…) for its transformation into intelligent environments. We provide control over these spaces to companies, administrations and citizens.
Right now, the products we are offering for digitalization of environments are the following ones: ELON i: Energy monitoring, and control over plugs, luminaires and appliances. Modular and adaptable to any electrical installation.
It is very valid to visualize and control in a single platform what happens in several different buildings. ELON M +: Environmental sensing station (outdoor version and indoor version) capable of measuring with high precision all harmful pollutants recognized by the WHO.
In short, we develop hardware and software for smartcity and smarthouse applications.. .
Astreia was founded with the goal of enabling a sustainable future in space. The team develops intelligent housing that can be built anywhere on Earth, with the ultimate goal of building habitats on Mars.
Astreia uses automated systems to fabricate homes, complete with software for intelligent home and resource (energy and water) management. These homes are designed to the utmost efficiency, paving the way for self-sufficient communities on or off Earth..
