Out of the Blue: Dynamic Liquid Crystal Windows

From cutting down on carbon emissions and maximising energy efficiency to enhancing the health and well-being of a buildings’ occupants, the latest ‘smart glass’ and ‘dynamic glazing’ solutions offer unparalleled opportunities. Designed to meet, if not exceed, standards for low and zero-emission buildings, Dynamic Liquid Crystal Windows by Eyrise provide the opportunity to minimise the need for artificial heating and cooling by optimising the use of that generated naturally. In this latest report, the technology’s performance is compared against its closest competitors on colour-rendering, switching speed, and circadian well-being to show where it leads the way. Gaze into the future of glazing by accessing this free whitepaper below.

Nature of Disruption: The Burro collaborative robots use computer vision, GPS, and AI to follow people and navigate autonomously from point A to point B. It carries varying payloads according to the crop type. The robots follow rows, handle obstacles, collect data, and scout crops. The robots also come with a remote view for the operator that has an online dashboard view to see the robot map. The robot has 256GB storage with a 4G LTE modem with an air forced cooling system. The maximum payload it can carry has of 226KG with a max speed of 2.25 M/S. It has a power of 5HP with a range of 12.8KM with 2 x 135ah SLA batteries (base) with a charging time of 12 hours.

Outlook: The autonomy in agriculture is mainly focused on autonomous tractors, autonomous weeding, and harvesting meant for automating hard tasks. Burro’s agriculture collaborative robots are people-scalable and help them by moving heavy things around the farm. It addresses ubiquitous pain points in the most labor-intensive areas of agriculture. Also, it captures data and learns from its environment leveraging computer vision and AI on a robotics platform. Burro raised $10.9M in Series A funding led by S2G Ventures and Toyota Ventures. Along with current investors Radicle Growth and ffVC, F-Prime Capital, and the Cibus Enterprise Fund joined the round.
