Auto-Robotics is an Austrian startup that takes a complex idea and turns it into a manageable, everyday business solution, using a base station and flight objects for data collection. The unique base station is at the heart of an infrastructure that includes the latest vision-based algorithm. This algorithm - together with the flight objects - manages tasks autonomously, only interacting on human interfaces if they are given a particular demand. Unsupervised lift-offs and landings are controlled by the latest object detection algorithms - as well as logistical planning - thereby transforming complex tasks into a manageable sequence of events at any time 24/7. These objects are capable of scheduling, collecting and sorting large amounts of sensor data. They can also evaluate and deliver this data via the internet and radio to users who do not need prior technical knowledge. APIs are available to complete almost every business need. Our mission is to make complex tasks and data analysis by flight objects safe, self-sufficient, and reliably powerful tools for businesses across industry, agriculture and construction. "

Our product is a production planning, regulating and controlling software for the industry. With our solution any company can digitize their workflow, speed up their daily routines and make the whole process much more efficient. Our goal is to get rid of unnecessary paperwork so the workers can focus on the more important issues. Furthermore we are researching in the field of industry 4.0, so in the future our product can communicate with other machines. We believe that every company has its own unique production process. Therefore we focus on individualizing our product to the need of the customer. We plan the software together with our customers and their workers to figure out the perfect workflow for their production process. The result is an incredible high customer satisfaction. Also we have a working product, a paying customer and therefore a proof of concept.

High-performance polymers (HPPs) are plastics of outstanding mechanical, thermal and chemical stability. They find use in applications where low weight matters and demanding conditions arise, e.g., in aviation, space technology and microelectronics. The exceptional materials properties of HPPs increase with crystallinity. We have developed a technique to prepare a highly important type of HPPs – polyimides (PIs) – of unprecedented crystallinity. In addition, our technique is much less harmful than conventional preparations for PIs: we use nothing but water, heat and the starting chemicals. Crystalline PIs would allow for generating even better performing HPP materials for numerous high-end applications. With CRYSPI, we envision to manufacture outstandingly crystalline and thus stable polyimides by our novel environmentally friendly procedure.

FlatPal is an innovative Platform for Flatshares. It's easy and intuitive, it's Tinder for Flatshares! With its innovative matching algorithm it will provide you with matching results for your new shared flat or roommate.Based on one's preferences, FlatPal suggests you accomodations with new roommates that fit for you. If you are someone that already has a flatshare and offers a room it provides you with possible roommates. Both parties, that are people who are looking for a flat as well as people that already live inside a flat and offer a room, can then Like or Dislike each other. If both sides like each other they have a Match. And from this point on they have the possibility to chat with each other using FlatPals integrated Messenger.

Fluorescence Scanner for Quality Inspection of Asphalt Roadworks  
Institute of Materials Chemistry


The prototype of a fluorescence scanner shall be developed with the aim to improve quality inspection and testing of asphalt streets. Bitumen for roadworks exhibits strong fluorescence signals in the visible range reflecting the molecular composition of the asphalt binder. Using a fluorescence scanner will enable us to stimulate fluorescence selectively and to detect and analyze the answer. From this spectral information we can draw conclusions concerning the alteration of the molecular composition and thus the state of aging. The fluorescence scanner shall be broadly available in the whole value added chain from the bitumen production in the refinery and the asphalt mounting down to the asphalt recycling.

Visiting a museum of fine arts is not always fun. Paintify can create great experience for the visitors. It maps the visitor's face to any portrait in the gallery. Visitors can experiment and instead of taking selfies with famous artworks, they can actually appear in them. This way, the connection to the exhibition gets much stronger and the visitors feel more involved. Of course, they can buy their customized paintings in printed form or share them on social networks.

Radiology Explorer  
Diploma Supplement on Innovation Alumni


Radiology Explorer brings state of the art machine learning and semantic analysis to real world applications. It allows radiologists to mark a region of interest containing a pathological appearance in an medical image (e.g. CT or MRI) and within seconds finds visually similar cases, including their descriptions. This way radiologists for the first time can efficiently browse through the PetaBytes of existing medical image data, and also get easy access to case relevant reference information and online literature. Radiology Explorer brings the information closer to the point of care and supports radiologists, so that they can focus on diagnosing their patient images instead of wasting valuable time searching for information.
