The pandemic requires everyone to think about innovative solutions to ensure safety for all employees at the workplace. That is why iWavenology created a simple device that generates an alarm whenever a person comes too close to another: iDistance. iDistance is a wearable product that helps companies stop the potential spreading of Covid-19. Using UWB technology, it can process up to 50 users simultaneously within 1 second.
A team named iTech has developed the first commercialized radio frequency front-end module for wireless positioning under the leadership of National Taiwan University’s Graduate Institute of Communication Engineering professor Mao Shau-gang (毛紹綱), who secured a US$5 million order for the module at the Viva Technology show in Paris in May.
Among the ten startup teams, two were representatives for the MOST’s TRUST-U Program, namely: the precise positioning solution developer iTech led by Professor Mao Shau-Gang from National Taiwan University, and the AI-based driver fatigue monitoring system developer, FaceHeart Inc., led by Professor Wu Bing-Fei from National Chiao Tung University. By joining VivaTech 2019, the Trust-U teams were not only able to gain exposure and raise funds but also to reach out to their target customers. It was unprecedented for MOST to lead a delegation of startups to Europe. The arrangement enabled the startups to approach the European market in proximity, thereby winning orders from the local customers. Moreover, the delegation visited several accelerators and enterprises in French and Luxembourg as an effort to secure startup resources and investments in Europe in addition to extending cooperation opportunities to various industries.
A Taiwanese start-up developer of a positioning system for uncrewed vehicles has secured a US$5 million purchase order at a conference in France, the Ministry of Science and Technology said yesterday, expressing the hope that Taiwan and France will continue to deepen technological collaboration.
Le ministère de la Science et de la Technologie a annoncé hier que la société taïwanaise, qui développait un système de positionnement pour les véhicules non équipés, avait obtenu un bon de commande d’une valeur de 5 millions de dollars lors d’une conférence de presse. Elle espère que Taïwan et la France continueront à approfondir leur collaboration technologique.
