Kadans Sparks

Digital Innovation

‘Kadans Sparks…’ is a new type of event where organisations can explore the future of innovative solutions.

First, ‘Visionary dreamers’ share their vision of the future. They will trigger your imagination by taking you on a journey to the future about the role of digital innovation in our lives.

Followed by ‘innovators’ pitching their disrupting technologies. Innovators are companies working on ground-breaking innovations, and they will inspire you with their solutions.

During this first Kadans Sparks edition we bring visionary dreamers and innovators together to ignite business opportunities between them. Through collaboration the visions are translated to a future within reach.

This is your opportunity to get acquainted with future technologies, meet new partners and acquire new business opportunities.

On November 29, we are organising the first edition at the TU/e campus in Eindhoven. All tenants of the tech community are welcome, including other campuses.

The visionary dreamers

The visionary dreamers will share their vision of the future. They will trigger your imagination by taking you on a journey to the future about the role of digital innovation in our lives.

Our first visionary dreamer is Vanderlande, a market-leading, global partner for future-proof logistic process automation in the warehousing, airports and parcel sectors. Vanderlande will be presenting two visions on Fully Integrated City Hubs and Fully Automated, Remotely Operated Warehouses.

  1. Fully Integrated City Hubs

In this track we will dive into ‘The Line’, which is a futuristic city that is currently being built in Saudi Arabia. We will discuss questions like ‘How would parcel delivery be organized in a city like The Line?’ and ‘Which technologies will play a role in this world and what is their contribution?’ 

  1. Fully Automated, Remotely Operated Warehouses

In this scenario we assume that warehouses operations are fully automated and operated by people remotely. We will discuss questions like ‘How would maintenance work in fully automated, remotely operated warehouses?’ and ‘Which technology is needed to remotely operate a warehouse?’

Our second visionary dreamer is GN Hearing, developer of hearing aids. GN Hearing has a history of innovation and breakthrough solutions for better hearing, which have won several awards. They foresee a future where our sensory systems, in particular hearing and vision will be more entwined.

  1. The hearing aid with Vision

In this track we will explore hearing enhancement by adding visual information towards existing hearing device audio technology. This to give the blind hearing instrument ‘eyes’ and have it see and understand the listeners intent. Questions we will address are 1. Which type of applications can we envision and what are the related technology needs? And 2. What would be the user experience aspects and challenges that come along with introducing these new technologies?

The innovators

Innovators are organisations working on ground-breaking innovations, and they will inspire you with their solutions. They will pitch their disrupting technologies that will fit the vision of the future, pictured by the visionary dreamer.

Avular

Avular is an innovative robotics company, accelerating the creation of mobile robots that shape a brighter future. Avular has a diverse product portfolio, but one thing they all have in common is that they are fully modular.

Eindhoven Artificial Intelligence Systems Institute (EAISI)

focuses on deepening AI through innovative research in data and algorithms, widening AI by bringing in the human element: ethics, law and society and making AI a fundamental part of all engineering applications. EAISI has defined three main application areas: Health, high-tech systems and mobility.

Total Reality

Total Reality makes industrial and operational business processes more effective with XR solutions. 

OrangeNXT

OrangeNXT connects people & devices and allows you to simplify your processes and identify new business opportunities. Their applications range from predictive maintenance, optimizing parcel delivery to energy management.

WAVES Process Intelligence

WAVES Process Intelligence developed the Konekti platform. Process mining is the easiest way to understand and optimize business processes. Konekti is the easiest way to prepare your data for process mining. 

Hart

Hart is a student-team conducting and developing Human Augmentation Research & Technology. They are designing a wearable sleeve with 24 vibration motors, together with the development of a new language and non-verbal communication method by conjuring our sensory system of touch.
