Explore the challenges posed by industries:
Prime Agro Produtos Agrícolas aims to create a computer system for planning and optimizing roads and truck capacity, with monitoring data integration. The challenge is to validate the implementation of the proposed paths and make the system more robust.
Rumo Malha Norte, a subsidiary of Curitiba, pursues two solutions: identifying the origin of products transported by road, providing a map and report of restricted areas, along with product details and quality proof provided. It is a solution that enhances real-time monitoring of grain storage capacity in port terminal warehouses, leading to increased operational efficiency in port logistics.
De Sangosse Agroquímica aims to implement the following technologies: geolocation of materials in the warehouse, identification of materials by barcode, movement of materials with cross-out by barcode readers.
Viasoft needs to develop an application with communication APIs to synchronize data with performance when the Internet is available, enabling the agronomist or agricultural technician to issue the agricultural prescription, with the digital signature.
Tecverde Engenharia needs to replace the beam currently in use in the basement floors with an engineered structure that has mechanical performance equal to or superior to existing beams, enhancing environmental sustainability and optimizing natural resources and inputs.
Adama Brasil, a company operating in the agrochemical sector, intends to develop an augmented reality application for use in the Hololens, to support industrial inspections/training, providing the union of the user’s physical reality with the digital environment.
Pastifício Selmi aims to convert pasta and biscuit waste into biomass for energy, through molding or pelleting, and generation of biogas or alternative materials for boiler combustion.
Frimesa Cooperativa Central is looking for solutions that help in taking predictive, preventive and corrective actions, as well as analyzing quality data, using hardware and software for data collection and processing, quality software and systems linked to dashboards.
Cocari, Cooperativa Agropecuária e Industrial, needs to find a solution to monitor the entire range of the cooperative, through a satellite image, and convert it to DVI: weather conditions, water stress and temperature rise.
