Simple Homes: Simple Homes is a Denver-based startup focused on increasing access to high-quality housing by using technology-enabled design and panelized off-site construction. The company designs, manufactures and assembles homes using a unique Swedish-inspired panelized construction system. Depending on project needs, panels are delivered to site with exterior cladding, windows/doors, rough-in mechanicals, and drywall pre-installed. The company is based in Denver, where it operates a 20,000sf manufacturing facility in a historic railroad maintenance building. https://www.simplehomes.com/
is developing a global road quality monitoring and prediction platform advising public road authorities and commercial construction firms when and where the next road segment needs to be maintained. For this we combine available traffic and environmental information with our own set of novel sensor and data sources such as crowdsourced smartphone measurements, in-vehicle sensors as well as satellite earth observation to create a unique big data pool which is being analysed and interpreted through our artificial intelligence solution. The provided information helps our customers to detect road wear and structural damages alike, cheaper than with specialised vehicles and better than visual bypass assessments, and allows for optimal decision making and maintenance scheduling. This results in maximised road safety, reduced cost of operations and minimised downtime for repair purposes.
