Percipio<BigData> analytics tool

percipio tool combines different sources of information (research and scientific literature, patent database, RSS news, websites, social media, etc.) with its algorithms to provide a holistic picture about both scientific and technical developments as well as trends being of high relevance for current and future business development.

percipio database contains more than 250 millions of technical and scientific articles and on top of that more than one million of relevant social and news items per day. All these data are summarized into a few dashboards using context-based analytics algorithms where context is selected by a customer.

Typical use cases

Customer selects specific context of interest by specifying one or more keywords like Energy, Automotive or something more specific like Tribology. Context-based algorithms summarized data from all databases according to specified keywords into a few trends and correlation dashboards which are search related.

The slogan “Find the (un)known unknowns and discover new insights!” directly reflects the promise that with our tool customers will not overlook relevant information but will get an edge to overcome the blind spot problem of nearly all companies: the focus on the existing business model quite often drives executives to overlook future opportunities and risks.

Designing effective digital solutions with stakeholders (service)

A service provided with SEROI+ methodology combines socio-economic and environmental return on investment (SEROI) assessment with open innovation (OI). Assessment allows for evaluation and monitoring of existing or planned products and services delivering socio-economic returns. These are determined by policy or service goals and evaluated by measuring relevant indicators and values. Complementary open innovation approach enables public or private entities to involve all relevant stakeholders in identification and definition of goals and objectives, identification of measurable indicators and expected impacts, and in co-design and co-development of new products and services.

Typical use cases

Creating innovative products, services, policies and business models that correspond with relevant stakeholders needs, expectations and motivations can be used in both private-entrepreneurial efforts to connect the business value to end-users and public-communal endeavors of creating sensible solutions for citizens.

SWETHER – Electrical switch wih Ethereum blockchain support

Blockchain based end-to-end prototype system comprised of IoT devices, decentralized applications (DAPPs) and user interfaces. Enables control of electric switch via Ethereum blockchain transactions. The user can reserve electric charging slot and pay for consumed time/energy via Ethereum network. It is a practical application of blockchain technologies in IoT devices.

Prototype system consists of: Smart contract: deployed in Ethereum network to execute dAPP logic; User and Admin Web applications: to be run in Ethereum compliant browsers like Mist or browser plugins; Swether: IoT device that intercepts events from Ethereum network and toggles its state accordingly. The solution enables several use case approaches models with customizable on- and off-chain elements.

Typical use cases

The developed technology is excellent for prototyping distinct IoT and blockhain solutions. The concept can be easily extended to e.g. charging of electric vehicles, arbitrary control of IoT devices, device-to-device transactions and interactions.
