Making a self-contained air drumming instrument

Challenge

We were able to bootstrap Aerodrums using readily available hardware, but this meant requiring users of our first model to own and operate a computer. The challenge is to enable people to set up and drum without a computer.

Solution

Our solution is to create an embedded IoT instrument that people can use with a mobile phone, tablet or virtual reality headset. This means solving the problem of doing high speed real time motion tracking and low latency audio rendering on an affordable IoT hardware platform. No one has tried to do this before – we are the first mover and leader in optically tracked percussion instruments.

FED4SAE Support

FED4SAE enabled us to further a collaboration with Intel; receive support from BME’s Department of Electron Devices; receive advice on the management of innovation from Blumorpho; and fund R&D. Using Intel’s Myriad 2 platform, we were able to finalise a proof of concept. We then moved on to a design-to-cost phase and completed a pre-production prototype. BME assisted us with advice on heat dissipation for LED arrays, and with characterising the behaviour of the prototype under different temperature and humidity conditions. Blumorpho helped us overcome unforeseen supply difficulties in the course of the project.

Impact

The project enabled us to de-risk the introduction of the next Aerodrums model to market, as well as reducing its cost to end users. This is key to our ambition to democratise access to percussion instruments. These fall in a category of goods that is currently difficult to use in dense housing, expensive and whose manufacturing is demanding on the environment.

When we launch the product we will be able to activate a key part of our business model, which is to offer digital goods to users of the instrument. These will include music lessons, new sounds, new instrument configurations, visual 3D “skins” and play along songs.

The above combined with the higher attractiveness to end users of a self contained instrument will allow our company to grow.

Predictive Control System to Maximize Lifetime of Hybrid Fuel Cells

Challenge

The vast majorities of today’s Battery Management Systems (BMS) for commercial lithium ion battery modules are based on empirical models of the lithium ion cell. Their prediction capabilities are limited and they cannot be used to estimate the State of Health (SOH), the Remaining Useful Life (RUL) and the Aging of the cells.

The main challenge to reduce the total cost of ownership concerns an optimized management of electrochemical power sources through adaptive control strategies and prognostic capabilities.

Solution

Genport designs and realizes hybrid fuel cells (HFC) combining smart energy storage systems based on Li-ion batteries with Proton Exchange Membrane (PEM) fuel cells. In order to improve reliability and lifetime, Genport has developed an algorithm capable to predict internal states (SOH, RUL) of lithium ion batteries based on their electro-chemical model (ECM).

Within HYPEMLIFE, Genport has embedded a reduced order version of the original ECM into the STM32 high-end board.

The STM32 communicates with the Li-ion battery and PEM fuel cell and will read actual voltage, current and temperature values for the battery; from those variables, HIPEMLIFE algorithm continuously detects the internal states of the hybrid power source.

FED4SAE Support

HYPEMLIFE has been implemented on the ST Microelectronics processor STM32 family and it has been validated on Genport’s 7kW HFC system at the Energy Electronic Testbed of Fraunhofer IISB.

Impact

HYPEMLIFE prognostics capabilities has minimized the overall cost of energy and improved the power quality of hybrid power sources while matching uncertainty of renewable energy sources with variability of load profile.

Integrated inside a BMS the prognostic tool provide high precision real time estimations of important internal states of the battery. It also adds diagnostic capabilities embedded inside a battery tester by identifying latent faults in the cells.

The collaboration with ST Microelectronics and Fraunhofer Institute is moving Genport to the forefront in the design of advanced electronic & control solutions to provide better power solutions to the cleantech industry

HyperCook: AI multispectral imaging for smart online monitoring of baking process

Challenge & Solution

The baking industry is one of Europe’s earliest industries however modern baking industry faces challenges of achieving increasing efficiency, reducing waste while ensuring a high quality product is delivered in a timely, consistent matter to their customers.

HyperCook aims to bring the insights provided by exploiting CSEM’s Hyperspectal camera along with their domain expertise in Hyperspectral imaging systems to the industrial baking process to gain additional insights into the cooking process and enable smarter industrial baking ovens to consistently produce the perfect high quality product.

By combining multispectral imaging with relevant and robust algorithms, Hypercook will be able to monitor the biscuit baking process in a static or moving scene configuration. The solution may be later fully integrated and offer communication with the oven assuring a complete autonomous functioning as part of an integrated bakery management system.

A main challenge to address is the products variability, even within one type as biscuits (relief, shape, impact of the recipe, marking, etc), and also user-experience driven quality experience (visual, taste, texture). Well adapted data treatment and machine learning tools developed by GreenTropism are key to address these challenges and provide a data driven decision-making system.

Solution

Greentropism aim to develop a prototype that combines hardware, software and hyperspectral imaging components along with their domain knowledge expertise, to provide an integrated system to monitor and control the cooking process. Such a system may be installed inline in the baking process and enable real-time feedback control of the cooking process. The system will provide information at different levels : from the user perspective, it will automate the determination of cooking stage by applying embedded machine learning algorithms ; later on, for an even smarter integration, it can be further interconnected with industrial ovens, in order to adapt the protocol (time, temperature, humidity, speed of the conveyor belt,…) as part of the perfect recipe.

FED4SAE Support

Greentropism is specialized in spectroscopy data analysis and machine learning’s which neatly compliments CSEM’s capacities and expertise in multispectral imaging and product integration. Intel provides the Compute platforms (IPC) to enable the secure integration of the various components as part of an integrated baking or manufacturing process. Insights in innovation management were contributed by Blumorpho which is important for product development as well as to consider the right business models and market approaches.

Impact

Machine learning applied to multispectral camera offers a wide range of potential applications in food & beverage as well as in health, cosmetics, agriculture,… For example, after developing its expertise on biscuit baking levels, Greentropism will be able to extend applications to pastry, rotisserie, precooked frozen food processing,… Developing those CPS is beneficial to the market as it allows a more dynamic, cost reducing and homogeneous production. Hypercook is leading the way in ensuring quality and consistently of our food while delivering a greener industry with reduced waste and energy consumption.

Despite the scientifically proven relevance of diffuse sunlight for crop production improvement, commercial light sensing technologies do not allow to effectively and affordably implement an automated control of shadings systems in horticultural practices. For this reason, the shading process is not optimized, and so is the production.

Solution

To fill this gap, we have integrated a cyber-physical system gathering real-time information about the type of sunlight available in greenhouses under continuously changing irradiation conditions, and providing input for controlling shading screens so as to optimize crop growth.

The system represents an innovation for it makes available, affordable, and easy to implement in commercial precision horticulture the real-time monitoring of sunlight type available to crops. Such a step-forward in the proposed application domain is enabled by a key component of the OptiLight system: the CIS sensor, a breakthrough device capable of performing a full irradiation assessment broken into all components (direct and diffuse) of sunlight.

Achievements

The results obtained and the tests carried out also during the OptiLight project have allowed us to quickly develop two new products that we will launch on the market in the first semester of 2021: Capt2Go, a low cost and handy solar sensor that measures global, direct, and diffuse irradiation with no need for sun tracking systems or moving parts, and WDS, a compact sun-fueled platform providing power, communication and networking capabilities to environmental monitoring sensors and technologies.

LEVERAGING AI & HYPERSPECTRAL IMAGING TO PROVIDE EARLY INSIGHTS INTO SKIN CANCER

Challenge

Skin cancer is responsible for 1 death per hour which accounts for more than 50% of all cancers combined. The most aggressive and hazardous skin cancer type is Melanoma, which represents 4% of all skin cancer lesions. Melanoma diagnosis rates are continuously increasing however the number of Dermatologists is decreasing relative to the population. This means that Dermatologists do not have the capacity to regularly examine the general population using conventional techniques. At present, multiple repetitive examinations are required in order to safely determine skin abnormalities. Most systems that are currently available to doctors are optical or digital dermoscopes, operating in the visible spectrum. Such devices have limited diagnostic and predictive accuracy.

Solution

SpectroX project exploited the fact that Hyperspectral imaging is able to reveal rich information, both in and under the surface of skin, well beyond the capabilities of the human eye. With the additional aid of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and deep learning technology, this has enabled the multi-disciplinary team of Computer Scientists and dermatologists at Althexis to develop this breakthrough technology that can detect and classify skin conditions before they become they even become visible thus enabling earlier intervention resulting in improved patient outcomes.

SpectroX has proven to be highly accurate, easy to use as an early diagnostic system that will revolutionize the way in which skin conditions are detected. SpectroX significantly reduces the examination time by half compared to current solutions, while making a previously inaccessible technology, affordable  without any compromises.
This is the key to scale population screening, which will lead to saving lives and medical costs.

SpectroX is a full solution for the dermatologist from the handheld image capture device with an AI enabled software capable of capturing and making skin image classifications for various skin conditions. It also includes full patient records, electronic GDPR consent forms, patient metadata. visits and images taken over time of skin lesions and moles. All data is uploaded to the Althexis Secure Cloud, enabling AI models to be continuously updated and distributed automatically to all the systems in the clinics. This process enables every dermatologist and their patients to gain from the latest collective insights and expertise and enables single-shot predictions of unprecedented accuracy, compared to the conventional procedures.

AI has rapidly evolved and matured and is used in a growing number of healthcare solutions providing outstanding performance. Spectral Imaging cameras enable precise and consistent image acquisitions, as the capture procedure is properly calibrated and represents an actual physical measurement. Althexis combines these along with its secure Cloud technologies to bring about the next generation dermoscope, with a special emphasis on the early detection of melanoma.

FED4SAE Support

FED4SAE project has been critical in accelerating the efforts of the company to develop and deploy working devices, based on CSEM’s Hyperspectral Technologies that captured rich hyperspectral images from patients which has enabled the AI systems to be developed. This has enabled Althesis to validate their business model and reach the market faster. The collaborative network within FED4SAE provided the key enabling technologies from CSEM and Intel also valuable business support from BluMorpho.

Impact

SpectroX is the next generation dermoscope solution and it has been developed, deployed and validated within the FED4SAE Application Experiment. It is enabling Dermotologists to gain early detection of melanoma or certain skin conditions and that can significantly increase survival rates. SpectroX will also have a significant impact on the attitude towards skin screening from the general public and allow for a larger portion of the population to be tested. Currently (Q4’2020) Althexis is currently seeking Venture Capital funding, in order to scale its business by approaching new clients and develop new features within SpectroX.

TIME4SYS FOR SYSTEM ARCHITECTS CHALLENGE

Challenge

In all the domains addressed by Smart-Anything-Everywhere Initiative, the general technology trends are the same: an increasing number of functions will be distributed over a small number of high-performance embedded systems and software development becomes the main driving factor.

The resulting tooling from this experiment aims at improving the design of these software, by giving the system architect confidence – and potentially proves – on the ability of the system to match the expected behavior; a capability that was previously restricted to few specialists, late in the process, in the best case…

Solution

The solution extends proposes three main improvements to the current design practices:

  • Allow the system designers to lead analysis on their designed architecture by their own; without depending on others and without leaving their working environment
  • Allow to launch different tools (analysis and simulation) and give hints on the most relevant one regarding the model of the design architecture
  • Allow to identify the elements and properties involved in a missed end-to-end deadline, directly in the original architecture modelling environment.

The solution thus extends the Capella system architecture environment and allows to define real time properties and constraints on the system in the early steps of design.

The solution can be used in a generic engineering framework but also provides additional features for specific domains where timing is critical and where the complexity is such that it cannot be grasped by the human mind; an Arinc 653 customization supports this whole approach in the domain of integrated modular avionics so that a A653-based system architect could get timing analysis in a few clicks.

FED4SAE Support

THALES had provided real use cases where the approach is useful and real feedback from the trenches with value assessment (cost, planning, quality).

The solution being relevant in many industrial fields, FED4SAE has supported Artal in the definition and packaging of solutions for specific domains out of our existing scope of clients.

Impact

Developing a bridge between Capella and Time4Sys is a key factor for the adoption of Time4Sys in the industry, not only aeronautics and space industry, but also smart cities, smart health, smart building, smart transport and others. The developed tooling is improving the design of these systems, by giving confidence on the ability of the system to match the expected behavior. For critical systems, it reduces the risk and associated costs of finding critical issue during the late stages of development and improve confidence on the system design. It also supports the optimization of the real time systems by reducing the security margins usually set to cope with the unforeseen chain of events leading to a failure.

This tooling supports the strategic transformation of Artal from a pure service provider to a solution provider, mixing services and licensed software products, with more added value. This requires internal transformations to adapt and strengthen the company workforce for marketing, legal and R&D services through on-going efforts and significant progress has already been made.
