The Industrialist: Trends & innovations - Nov 2021

  1. 1. Innovate—Trends and innovations that matter
  2. 2. Know more about the latest announcements impacting industry, from ammonia-fueled ships to electric robotaxis.
  3. 3. Industrial is a front runner in combining human ingenuity with technology and innovation. Thomas Rinn Managing Director, Global Industrial Sector Lead, Accenture
  4. 4. Siemens Gamesa launches recyclable wind turbine blade Siemens Gamesa has developed a recyclable offshore wind turbine blade – and it already has three customers signed up. The RecyclableBlade brings Siemens a step closer to realizing its ambition of producing a fully recyclable wind turbine by 2040. Six of the blades, measuring 81-meters- long, have already been produced at the company’s factory in Denmark. The blades are made from different materials fused together with a resin that can be separated at the end of the blade’s life. Offshore wind turbine blades typically end up in landfills, compared to other parts of the turbine that can more easily be recycled. Siemens’ new approach allows the composite materials to be protected during the separation process when the resin is removed. RWE, EDF Renewables and WPD AG have already reached agreements with Siemens for the blades. 01
  5. 5. Wärtsilä and Samsung develop ammonia-fueled engines Wärtsilä and South Korean shipbuilding company Samsung Heavy Industries have entered into a joint agreement to develop more environmentally friendly, carbon-free fuels for the maritime industry. Technology company Wärtsilä has already developed and tested an engine that can run on fuel made up of 70% ammonia but is aiming to achieve 100% ammonia fuel by 2023. The two companies are developing the fuel for ships with 4-stroke auxiliary engines for future newbuild projects. The engine will initially be used by container ships and large crude carriers that today use 2-stroke main engines or 4-stroke Wärtsilä auxiliary engines. 02
  6. 6. Baidu’s autonomous excavation system A team from Baidu Research Robotics, Auto-Driving Lab (RAL), and the University of Maryland has developed a driverless Autonomous Excavator System (AES) for construction, mining and rescue purposes. The group claims that the system’s capabilities are close to that of an experienced human operator. AES harnesses algorithms and an array of sensors and cameras to build a 3D picture of the environment and identify target materials. The system, which can be used by excavators of all sizes, has already been trialed at a waste disposal facility to help increase worker safety. The AES operated for more than 24 hours with no intervention, and a compact excavator using the technology can move 67.1 cubic meters per hour – similar to the rate of a human operator. Baidu plans to develop an AI and cloud-based platform for AES for the construction industry and has already partnered with machinery companies. 03
  7. 7. AGCO acquires Faromatics to improve animal welfare Agricultural machinery and precision technology company AGCO has acquired Farm Robotics and Automation (Faromatics), a precision livestock farming company. Faromatics is the company behind ChickenBoy, a ceiling-suspended robot that uses a series of sensors and artificial intelligence to monitor chickens and improve animal welfare and farming productivity. The system measures air quality, light, sound, and other metrics, to identify any health and welfare risks, as well as any risks to farming equipment. AGCO’s Chairman, President, and CEO Eric Hansotia said: “This Faromatics acquisition supports our vision of being farmers' most trusted partner for industry-leading, smart farming solutions across every area of our business.” 04
  8. 8. Bridgestone acquires Azuga for $391m Bridgestone Americas has acquired fleet management company Azuga, including its 400 employees and mobility solutions technology. Bridgestone Americas, a subsidiary of global tire and rubber company Bridgestone Corporation, says the acquisition will help bolster its ambitions of developing tire and mobility solutions that increase safety and improve sustainability. Azuga’s platform features GPS tracking, video telematics, driver behavior management, and accident reduction solutions for insurers. As added benefits, the solution can help reduce fuel consumption and decrease wear and tear on vehicles. Azuga already has more than 6,000 customers in the US and Canada across the public sector and commercial trucking and insurance industries. 05
  9. 9. MAHLE battery tech speeds up EV charging Automotive supplier MAHLE has developed cooling technology for batteries that will help electric vehicles re-charge faster. The technique uses immersion cooling: a non-conductive coolant flows around the battery cells, keeping temperatures low during charging. It also ensures temperatures everywhere around the battery are more consistent. By speeding up the charging process, the technique allows smaller batteries to be used in electric vehicles, potentially making them more affordable and sustainable. 06
  10. 10. Mobileye launches self-driving taxi Intel-owned Mobileye has unveiled a fully autonomous, electric taxi that could appear on the roads of Tel Aviv and Munich as early as next year, with the right regulatory approvals. The “robotaxi” can accommodate six passengers in a fully electric NIO ES8 vehicle equipped with the Mobileye Drive self-driving system. Mobileye’s system includes its TrueRedundancy sensing solution, which uses cameras, radar and lidar sensors, as well as its crowd-sourced Roadbook AV map. Members of the public will be able to book the taxis via the Moovit app, which is used by 600 million people worldwide to plan public transport journeys. In Germany, Sixt will partner with Mobileye to launch the taxi fleet, making use of its ride hailing and car rental ONE app. 07
  11. 11. Versatile raises $80m for construction tech Israeli AI construction optimization company Versatile has raised $80 million in a funding round led by Insight Partners. Versatile is the company behind CraneView, AI- and IoT-based technology that sits under the hook of cranes and collects data from construction builds to deliver insights and improve decision-making. Its data analysis informs everything from material use to redundancies, construction progress and crane utilization. The technology only launched in 2019 but is already used by more than 40% of the leading general contractors in North America. Versatile will use the funds to further strengthen its data capabilities and expand services to insurers and across the construction industry. 08
