urobots participate in Up2B event

urobots were selected, among twelve startups, to participate in the Up2B Product Booster program in Heidelberg.

The startups were offered the opportunity to implement pilot projects – within three weeks – based on real-life challenges from major companies (ABB, KSB, IDS, etc). As part of the program, the startups participated in workshops to learn about UX/UI, regulations, marketing and optimizing products for market readiness.

Although we did not win, we were the only startup to complete the task on time! Our challenge was to create a prototype of an app for auditing plant operations and health & safety standards for KSB, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of pumps and valves. To perform an audit, the user only needed to take a photo of a ‘problematic situation’. The app not only created a new audit entry automatically, it also searched for similar existing entries to use as a template. As part of the solution, we provided an AI-based similarity-matching proof of concept.
