Invision.AI, Sensing Feeling and Ohalo have been chosen to pilot their proposed safetytech solutions with Safety Accelerator Round Four Challenge Partners, Bernhard Schulte Shipmanagement, Scorpio and Discovering Safety, a programme of the UK’s HSE.
The programme’s fourth Innovation Day took place during Plug and Play’s Spring Summit in Sunnyvale, California, where participating Challenge Partners heard solutions from eleven innovative startup finalists, shortlisted from over 30 applicants, at a ‘Dragon’s Den’style pitch event.
The corporate Challenge Partners and successful startups will now work together on a short pilot project, funded by the Safety Accelerator programme. The pilots will test and apply a variety of emerging sensor technologies and data analytics, to improve safety in marine environments, and will utilise innovative digital tools to process previous incident reports and data, to derive deeper insights.
Established in 2018 by Lloyd’s Register and the Lloyd’s Register Foundation, the Safety Accelerator brings together startups and corporate industry leaders to work together to solve critical safety and risk challenges, using digital technology. The programme supports digital innovation in safety, by funding collaborative trials of new and emerging, high potential startup technologies, to tackle tough safety challenges set by corporate industry partners, or “Challenge Partners”.
Since its launch, the Safety Accelerator has funded six safetytech pilot projects globally, with six more due to be launched in the coming months. The programme collaborates closely with corporate partners to set innovation challenges quarterly, and expertly seeks digital startups to pitch their solutions during their Innovation Days. If you’re interested becoming involved as an industry challenge partner or startup, or if you’d like to know more about the programme, please get in touch via the website.
