The KIT start-up store2be has created an online platform that facilitates the temporary lease of advertising and retail spaces for brick-and-mortar businesses. It allows companies to benefit from the existing customer frequency in these spaces and present their products in an optimal environment. We have interviewed the store2be team on their idea, the foundation of their company and their future perspective.
Industrial robots have a vast scope of application. Their complex motion patterns make their programming so time-consuming, however, that their use is frequently not economical. The KIT spin-off ArtiMinds Robotics has developed a software that makes the programming of robots considerably faster and more intuitive. We have interviewed the ArtiMinds team on their idea, the foundation of their company and their future perspective.
Paralution Labs UG develops and sells its software PARALUTION, a software library for parallel calculation of sparsely populated linear equations. The software is hardware independent and thus gives inexperienced programmers the chance to use the newest research architectures. In addition to the development and sales of the software, the startup also offers services in the fields of “mathematics” and “parallel algorithms.” In an interview, we asked the team of Paralution Labs about the idea, the startup time, and the future prospects.
The company Lightrig GmbH develops a software that allows its users to manipulate the lighting of virtual objects in visualisation and animation by means of comfortable inputs. It is used especially in film, TV and media production. Not only does it facilitate the consistent, credible lighting of virtual objects, it also helps implement design specifications in a harmonious manner. We have interviewed the Lightrig team on their idea, the foundation of their company and their future perspective.
Prototypes are a thing of the past. With the software platform “Cross Connected” from Rüdenauer 3D Technology GmbH, mechatronic processes can be simulated and visualized in real-time as high-end 3D graphics. This makes it possible for businesses to virtually develop and optimize machine and system solutions and to experience these solutions interactively. The software can be used in the areas of product development, e-learning, sales, and service. In an interview, we asked Rüdenauer 3D Technology about the idea, startup time, and future prospects.
