It is an ecologically very interesting invention. Clean Water Pathfinder, an autonomous and articulated robot developed by France’s Acwa Robotics, can move like a worm in the water supply network to map it to the centimeter and assess its condition without disturbing the distribution or digging ditches. The volume of losses related to network leaks is around 20% in France. So the stakes are high.

2. Cray X, the handling and prevention exoskeleton

An exoskeleton is a motorized device that restores or enhances a human’s physical abilities. With its Cray X, the German company German Bionic offers a fully networked device that can offer up to 30 kg of lifting support for the lower back and a walking aid. This exoskeleton, made of ultra-light, waterproof carbon fiber, provides real-time warnings of bad posture to prevent fatigue and injuries.

3. DotPad, the touchpad for the visually impaired

The technology offers new possibilities to develop useful tools for the visually impaired. The Dot Pad Tablet is thus the first tactile graphics device with 320 raised areas, including 300 for displaying images or graphics and 20 for displaying Braille text. Connected, the tablet can convert any captured image in real time over a smartphone, in a tactile version on the raised screen of the tablet.

4. Graphene Square, the economical graphene emitter

It’s an innovation in a field that doesn’t come along often. The Korean company Graphene Square was awarded for the invention of a graphene emitter. Discovered in 2004, this material is the thinnest (one atom thick) and strongest in the world. And it has the property of storing energy easily. So this virtual fireplace generates heat, takes up little space and consumes 30% less energy.

5. AeviceMD, the intelligent virtual stethoscope

Health is a promising field for new technologies. Singapore-based company Aevice Health has developed AeviceMD, a wearable stethoscope powered by artificial intelligence. It can detect abnormal lung sounds in everyday life in diseases such as asthma and other chronic diseases. With the idea of ​​intervening as quickly as possible in the event of a breakdown. A sensor continuously evaluates and records the readings (breathing rate, heart rate, etc.). over an application to enable physicians to make quick clinical decisions.

And also…

Other innovation awards include Samsung’s ultra-secure anti-spoof payment card, John Deere’s fully autonomous tractor, SK On’s world’s fastest-charging battery for electric vehicles, and X6 Play (Xplora) kids’ smartwatch for ages 4-4 11 years…
