Team Sustainable Pirates

The shipping industry is making the world smaller to us by making available products from all around the world. However, a little is said about its consequences… The pollution that 1 cargo ship emits is the same as the pollution emitted by 50 million cars, and 230 million people are directly exposed to the toxins emitted near the ports. Our team is collaborating with Wärtsilä to decrease emission problem by developing a modular ship concept, which will separate the engine and the cargo parts during docking.

Team MiCrane

Human errors are the main cause of tower crane accidents, which could be easily avoided by automation. However, developing automation systems is time-consuming and can be tedious financially, not to mention that arranging to test in real sites can be really complicated. Our team is creating a realistic scale model of a construction site with cranes that work much as the real ones do. By using this model, it will be possible to test the newly created automation systems safely, quickly and cost-effectively making construction sites a much safer place.

Team Seasu

When you are diving, you can feel free and forget everything else. However, for the surface team, the uncertainty of the diver’s situation is making the experience tense, because in this extreme sport there is no room for errors. Team Seasu introduces a solution that enables the surface team to track the location and depth of a diver wirelessly and in real time. Using our app and hydroacoustic communication method, we also establish a way to exchange messages between the diver and the surface team.

Team Rapala

Currently, for fishermen to be prepared for different fishing environments and weather conditions, the only option is to bring as many lures with them as they possibly can carry. With the fishing lure of tomorrow, this is no longer required. Our team has been developing a fishing lure to function successfully in alternating environmental conditions. This is achieved by turning the lure color into an adjustable variable controlled by the fishermen in the action. This will create a more relaxed and simple fishing experience without sacrificing the authentic fishing traditions.

Team T-Ray

When going to a concert, sports game or other events the last thing on your mind should be your safety. One way to improve security is to utilize x-ray technology which can quickly scan bags for not only guns and knives but also hazardous material that can go undetected using metal detectors. The problem is that x-ray machines aren’t easy to transport because they are extremely heavy and bulky. That’s why we have created the world’s first high capacity transportable x-ray machine. Allowing more venues to take advantage of the technology making events safer and more enjoyable for everyone.

Team Nose Knows

Dogs have been man’s best friend for ages now. Changing lifestyle styles and smaller living spaces, make dogs anxious and stressed. In our absence, this stress leads to unwanted “accidents”. Nose Knows has developed a solution which keeps our pet dogs busy while life keeps us away from them. Our robot trains dogs to solve puzzles using their sharp sense of smell which engages them and develops skills for an enhanced pet­-human bond.

Team Freelevator

The Freelevator is an unconventional elevator of the future. By cutting down on cables and counterweights, we’re allowing the elevator to move not just vertically, but horizontally as well. And while doing so, we’re also conserving energy. The elevator car will be suspended between two shaft walls which allows it to go as high up as desired and also anywhere within one floor. This will bring forth a revolution in the way we build cities in the future and how we move about in larger buildings and other structures.
