AGFA Group provides the technology solution to Health care and Printing industry. Here they are showcasing the Nano silver conductive Ink for printed electronics. They use this silver metal mesh for making the transparent conductive plastic surface. On the other side of the booth is the inkjet printable Solder mask for high accuracy and low pollution PCB manufacturing and digitally printed nano silver Ink on paper with the same conductivity as plastic.

Icohup is showcasing Rium which is a consumer device for measuring the pollution level and the radio activity at the home, it's a radioactivity sensor, a powerful gamma spectrometer, it can also detect the nature of the different type of radioactive rays. The device can be connected to the mobile app via Bluetooth and keep them updated about the environment, that informs users about the level of risk and proposes protection means adapted to each situation, as the Rium instrument is geolocated and connected to the Internet, the data received allow us to build radioactivity maps in real time. Icohup also develops tailored sensors in different fields such as fluids leaks, gas, anti-counterfeiting, etc.
Next to them is Ikalogic who is making the wireless oscilloscope probe which can be connected to desktop or mobile phone via WiFi and sends the data to it wirelessly. They also made the software to view the in detailed pattern of the signal. Ready to make uncompromised measurements, right out of your pocket. Anywhere. Anytime.
CPI Is the Center for process innovation company based in UK who collaborates with universities and SMEs to help them bring the new and innovative products to the market. They support their partner starting from the Concept to the market including but not limited to business support for the technology, manufacturing, supply chain management etc. Here they are showcasing the Inject printed copper PCB. One of the product is harvesting the energy from the NFC filed to glow the LEDs in the flexible PCB. There is also a giant OLED screen, Ethane sensor, breath sensor, and TB sensor. They are also showcasing the temperature and humidity logging circuit which has printed battery, microprocessor and two sensors inbuilt. Filmed at the IDTechEx Show!
http://smartshuttle.ch provides public transportation in areas where it not widely available or difficult to provide. The shuttles are autonomous and provide a small amount of seats. The service is currently operating as a test service in Switzerland and some units have already been deployed. The shuttle can turn around automatically and can run on narrow streets and narrow turns. PostBus and the Mobility Lab Sion-Valais (City of Sion, Canton Valais, HeS-So, EPFL, Swiss Post) intend to use the SmartShuttle project to learn how to deploy autonomous shuttles in the public sphere.
The Postbus smartshuttle is a 100% electric powered and self driving mini bus. The bus can hold up to 11 people. The shuttle is currently in operation in Switzerland. The vehicle will stop itself to prevent it from running over people. It is developped in a cooperation between the French company Navya, Bestmile and the Swiss Carpostal system.
Around the year 2000, the convergence on Linux and commodity x86_64 processors provided a homogeneous scientific computing platform which enabled the construction of the Worldwide LHC Computing Grid (WLCG) for LHC data processing. This allowed the High Energy Physics (HEP) community to use a homogeneous software model utilizing the x86_64 architecture. LHC experiments at CERN, in particular ATLAS and CMS, started investigating ARMv8 64-bit (AArch64) architecture for HEP needs. A journey which started in 2013. The LHC community faces a great challenge regarding computing needs in 10 years and has started exploring public clouds, volunteer computing (e.g., LHC@home) and HPC facilities to increase peak computation capacity. This talk will contain information about future (a timeline of 10 years) computation needs for LHC experiments and the more recent progress done by ATLAS, CernVM and CMS teams on using ARMv8 64-bit/AArch64.

Filmed at SID’s Displayweek 2017, we got to see CLEARink’s monochrome, color and video displays. This was the first public demo of this technology which originated at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada. Company is aiming for applications which require all the benefits of ePaper along with mass producible color and full motion video. They have commenced trial manufacturing at a LCD fab and hope to derive benefits of a fully depreciated factory. I interviewed their vp of marketing, Sri who has been in the display industry for decades. I also posted my interview with CLEARink's CEO here.
Standard Graphene shows their water filtering system using their graphene layer to help filter river water for it to be fully fresh drinkable, they are talking to the Vietnamese and Cambodian Government and talking with UNICEF to bring this to Africa. Standard Graphene also shows some of their other latest demonstrations featuring their graphene at the right price and at the right quantity. They are showing a 5kg ultra-light bicycle infused with graphene allows to increase 130% strength on the bicycle. Also bringing their technology to the automotive and later also to space industry.
