Maximising agriculture productivity

Bee Innovative has developed BeeDar, a radar like sensor for bees which is able to identify, track and report bee pollination activity across the orchard and field in near real time. Bee Innovative then provides this critical information to farmers to help increase yield and value. Bee Innovative is also developing a real time biosecurity platform to protect Australian pollinated agriculture worth $6 Billion annually from Varroa destructor which has decimated honeybee populations around the world. Bee Innovative’s frontline biosecurity platform includes BeeID, a facial recognition technology for bees. Bee Innovative is passionate about increasing global food production and defending Australia from Varroa destructor. Bee Innovative has been supported by the ON Accelerate program at CSIRO. http://www.oninnovation.com.au/en/ON-teams/ON-Accelerate5-Teams/Bee-Innovative

Improving sustainability within the egg industry

Adaptive Eggs identifies “male eggs” when they are laid avoiding the costly and undesirable culling practices in the egg laying industry. The incentive to adopt Adaptive Eggs breakthrough technology comes from the simultaneous elimination of economic losses associated with the incubation, hatch and cull of day old male layer birds and the potential conversion of this waste stream into novel value-added bio-products. Adaptive Eggs has been supported by the ON Accelerate program at CSIRO. http://www.oninnovation.com.au/en/ON-teams/ON-Accelerate5-Teams/Adaptive-Eggs

Small wind turbines that have a great impact

Traditionally, small wind turbines have had a significantly lower efficiency than their large-scale counterparts, increasing their levelized cost of energy. Diffuse Energy’s product is a small wind turbine that, through being enclosed within a diffuser, can produce nearly twice the power output of existing wind turbines of the same size. Their additional diffuser also makes their turbine safer and quieter than existing turbines, both of which are key considerations for potential customers. Diffuse Energy has been supported by the ON Accelerate program at CSIRO. http://www.oninnovation.com.au/en/ON-teams/ON-Tribe/ON-Accelerate4-Teams/Diffuse-Energy

Shoes that Can be Recycled

Adidas just introduced running shoes made from 100 percent recyclable material. They allow customers to return the shoes to the company instead of throwing them away. The ‘used’ shoes are then washed, ground to pellets and melted into material for components for a new pair of shoes. https://edition.cnn.com/2019/04/25/business/adidas-recyclable-shoe/index.html

A TV that Looks Like Designer Furniture

Panasonic collaborated with Vitra to create a transparent television called Vitrine that looks like a piece of furniture. The technological components are cleverly concealed within the wooden frame, which doubles as a stand for the TV. The design shows how new technologies can be seamlessly integrated into our living spaces. https://panasonic.net/design/works/milan2019/

Providing analytic results instantly

The Parts Per Billion has developed a sensor that gives users the information they need to make critical decisions in real time. This technology delivers laboratory-quality analytical results within minutes. It uses molecular machines, biosensors, to measure components in any food to see if it is safe for consumption. The biosensors can detect almost any molecule of interest. Parts Per Billion has been supported by the ON Accelerate program at CSIRO. http://www.oninnovation.com.au/en/ON-teams/ON-Accelerate5-Teams/Parts-Per-Billion

Sensors that improve processes

Sensei enables customers to achieve a greater understanding of their harshest process environments, allowing them to more effectively optimise their processes. Using Sensei, sensors are embedded in the material being processed and can be set to transmit readings at whatever time intervals are required. It is the only solution in the market that has the potential to provide cost effective measurement and productivity benefits for mining, petroleum, food and beverage and environmental industries. Sensei has been supported by the ON Accelerate program at CSIRO. http://www.oninnovation.com.au/en/ON-teams/ON-Tribe/Accelerate1/Sensei

An environmentally friendly graphene production process

Graph Air is a cost efficient process of producing graphene. It can filter out extremely toxic chemical compounds while allowing pure, pH neutral water through. It has narrow channels through which smaller water molecules can pass, but larger dissolved molecules and solvated ions are blocked. Graph Air has been supported by the ON Accelerate program at CSIRO. http://www.oninnovation.com.au/en/ON-teams/ON-Tribe/Accelerate1/Graph-Air

Using the natural noise of gut for health screening

The Noisy Guts team is developing an acoustic belt that records gut noises over time so doctors can accurately screen and diagnose gut disorders. Their research shows a strong correlation between gut noises and specific gut disorders. Noisy Guts’ belt is a safe, non-invasive screening, monitoring and diagnostic tool. The Noisy Guts has been supported by the ON Accelerate program at CSIRO. http://www.oninnovation.com.au/en/ON-teams/ON-Tribe/ON-Accelerate4-Teams/Noisy-Guts

A new technology that identifies healthy embryos

Life Whisperer, a new technology that identifies healthy embryos, has been labelled a game changer for couples struggling to conceive. The world-first IVF technology developed in South Australia uses artificial intelligence to compare images of new embryos with those that have previously led to successful pregnancies. Currently, doctors have to rely on the naked eye, and a microscope, to determine the healthiest embryo. https://7news.com.au/news/sa/revolutionary-ivf-treatment-uses-artificial-intelligence-to-find-healthy-embryos-c-76007
