I have been a Jurar at the event.
5th Feb 2021 - 3rd March 2021
It was great experience talking with startup and interesting ideas on predictive maintenance, conditional monitoring and computer vision technologies. Cost effective solutions such as drone based inspection of larger areas, and automated robots for solar plate dry cleaning, along with solutions using IOT sensor suites and platforms for predictive and prescriptive maintenance were real good.
Automated defect detection, video analytics, augmented reality guides were other interesting solutions.
