    Background Feedwater is a manufacturer and supplier of water treatment chemicals equipment and specialist services for industrial and commercial water systems. They work to keep commercial customers safe and industrial plants running, in line with their moto “keep them safe, keep them legal and keep them going.” The Feedwater team were seeking help in the […]

  2. Fatigue Management International – Rapid prototype creation

    Background High levels of alertness and vigilance are required in safety critical tasks and Fatigue Management International (FMI) provide proven solutions that predict the risk of fatigue for drivers, through the use of sensors and fit for duty assessments. FMI have found a way to predict fatigue risk through steering sensors, which stands out as a […]

  3. CNC Robotics – Increasing the connectivity between digital and automated systems

    Background CNC Robotics is the UK’s leading robotics integration company specialising in advanced robotics systems for machining. CNC Robotics are developing “CNCR-Live” integrated real time remote diagnostics, which will enable businesses to increase connectivity between digital and automated systems. This will be used to remotely monitor the manufacturing process and improve productivity. Approaching LCR 4.0 […]

  4. Aqua Running – Hydro suits

    Background Terry Nelson, Founder of Aqua Running, was a Liverpool FC youth team player until persistent injury forced him to give up the game as a teenager. Following two kidney transplants, Terry overcame adversity to win numerous gold medals in the British Transplant games, relying on running under water to stay in shape. From this […]

  5. Real Space – Developing a ‘Single Reality’ optical headset

    Background Real Space are developing a ‘Single Reality’ optical headset that that works by using innovative optical design to change the perceptual information received by the wearer, adding depth of field to a 2D image or video. Their VR immersive headset will give users a VR experience via a normal device, which has potential benefits […]

  6. 3D scanning technologies create a virtual museum

    A team from Liverpool John Moores University is working with partners from Greece, Belgium, France, Switzerland and elsewhere in the UK to develop 3D capture systems which will allow a deeper understanding of art using augmented/virtual reality technologies. DigiArt, which is funded through Horizon 2020, is aimed at providing a new, cost efficient solution to […]

  7. Liverpool-designed and built particle detectors

    Physicists based in Liverpool designed and built world-class particle detector systems incorporated in the heart of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN, the world’s largest and most powerful particle accelerator. These detectors were used in the ATLAS experiment that discovered the Higgs boson. They were also used in LHCb experiments that aimed to understand […]

  8. Improving smart products through collaboration

    The Mast Group is a specialist in clinical microbiology. Based in Liverpool, and with subsidiaries in France and Germany, the company markets its products in around 50 countries worldwide. When the hard- and software components of an existing machine became obsolete, they asked Liverpool scientists to help incorporate the latest technologies into its new product […]

  9. Wearable sensors

    Scientists from Liverpool John Moores University achieved a major breakthrough in wearable sensor technology in 2013. They developed sensors that can be woven into any garment, allowing doctors to monitor a patient’s vital signs such as heart rate, blood oxygen levels and temperature, in a way that is non-invasive, wireless and battery-free. Invisible and undetectable […]
