Industry 4.0 is a holistic approach to manufacturing that covers automation, data exchange, interconnectivity, machine learning and real-time data. It helps businesses better control their operations and provide access to real-time data to improve productivity, process and promote growth.
Using tools such as Internet of Things (IoT), Robotics, Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Big Data, this real-time monitoring leads to better insights, decision-making and faster development. Currently, IoT data is used for defect detection and may evolve to be used for predictive analysis.
NASSCOM forecasts that the IoT market size in India will reach $15 billion by 2020, which accounts for 5% of the global market. Digital utilities, smart cities, followed by manufacturing, transportation & logistics, and automotive industries are anticipated to be the main demand drivers for IoT.
UptimeAI Tech Private Limited
UptimeAI tweaks artificial intelligence for the needs of plant engineers, enabling them to predict equipment and performance issues in advance before they become significant failures. Their analytics engine continuously reads sensor data from every equipment in a plant, analyzes it, and alerts plant engineers of any impending issues. The software is scalable across multiple process industries including oil & gas, power, steel, and more.
Utilizing self-learning, UptimeAI continuously learns about changing conditions while providing prescriptive actions to achieve high availability, high efficiency, and reduced maintenance. UptimeAI's cloud-based architecture allows it to handle large datasets with thousands of sensors, allowing it to be scaled to large systems too.
Minionlabs India Private Limited
Minionlabs have identified a gap in the market for energy usage tracking within a building. Using Machine learning and AI to derive actionable insights, they bring about massive savings on electricity bills. In case the electricity data isn’t readily available, they also have a hand-sized sensor to collect data. Minion senses each and every appliance, device and tool turning on and off inside the building and generates a comprehensive report on predictive analytics and maintenance.
Minion uses a machine learning algorithm that captures voltage and energy signatures at microsecond intervals to study the patterns of device consumption. With this rich data, the algorithm is able to output a 98.24% accurate analysis of multiple energy signatures at any given point.
MinionLabs has received 24 Indian and international awards since its inception, including from the Indian PMO and the World Economic Forum.
Fabheads Automation Private Limited
Fabheads has designed and manufactured a new series of 3D Printers named FibrBots, which uses carbon fiber as a printing material instead of plastic or metal. Asia’s first and only company with this capability, the carbon fiber raw material allows them to print parts that are as strong as steel but as light as plastic.
The 3D printing filament is produced in-house using their (patent pending) process, for three models of printers. The startup envisions completely automating the manufacturing sector, not to mention sparking more innovations in other fabrication areas.
Fabheads won ₹ 6 lakh under the startup category at the DRDO Dare To Dream Awards. They were also incubated at the IIT-Madras Incubation Cell, receiving a grant of ₹ 10 lakh.
Scapic Innovations Private Limited
Scapic is revolutionising the goods and commerce sector by building a cloud platform that allows brands to create 3D and augmented reality experiences without needing to code it themselves. The platform also allows for distribution of these experiences online with no app installations required. It’s especially beneficial for industries like automobile, where products require extensive visuals.
Scapic has worked with companies like Royal Enfield, Flipkart, Myntra, Walmart, Unilever, Sony, Viacom18, Wipro, Accenture and many others to bring their 3D, AR and VR solutions to life. Additionally, Scapic’s delivery pipeline means that WebXR experiences can be consumed directly on any existing website and are accessible by most smart phones.
Scapic has been awarded a grant under the Elevate 100 program, Government of Karnataka.
Planys Technologies Private Limited
Planys is a research driven startup specialising in smart underwater inspection solutions. Planys’s technology identifies cracks, defects and possible anomalies in a variety of assets located underwater. This could be ports, oil & gas pipelines, desalination or power plants, dams, bridges, and so on. The startup offers HD videography, GPS mapping, ultrasonic thickness inspection, and acoustic surveys.
Not only does Planys make these operations safer and cost-effective, but also increases their efficiency and helps them forecast maintenance and repair better. The main USP lies in its complete end-to-end underwater inspection solutions, instead of standard protocols that are now three decades old.
GingerMind Technologies Private Limited
GingerMind builds AI-powered smartphone apps and wearables like smartglasses to help the visually impaired function as independently as possible. They also make campuses and workplaces accessible for the visually impaired, using technologies like artificial intelligence and augmented reality. Their app Eye-D offers blind users location-based features and more, using only a camera and internet connection.
Eye-D has features like, ‘Where Am I’, ‘Colour Detector’, ‘Around Me’, ‘Object Identification’, and many more. Additionally, any app on a smartphone can integrate with their smart glass, helping the visually impaired navigate around, read documents, find nearby ATMs, identify familiar faces, and more.
They received the ASSOCHAM ICT award for social startup of the year in 2017 and were recognised as one of top 50 emerging startups by NASSCOM in Sept 2019.
