Materials for Printed Electronics: Copper Inks
Copper based inks have been gaining interest as a potentially cheaper alternative for the conventional, market ready conductive silver inks. However, most of the current copper inks in the market have the tendency to oxidize under room conditions, leading to performance issues and thereby limiting their adoption. This technology presents a range of conductive materials, specifically copper inks, targeted at the flexible printed hybrid electronics sector. These functional materials are specifically designed to be printable, cured at low temperature and flexible, making them ideal for printed electronics. Furthermore, the inks have been formulated to be extremely stable under ambient conditions, providing several advantages over the existing state of the art. Two variations of copper inks are available: copper complex ink, and copper particle ink. Current methods for for electroless plating applications are achieved using palladium seed which is very costly. Copper complex ink can form a good base for such applications where building of circuit or electrodes on 3D images are an issue, providing a good, cost-effective alternative solution for the manufacture of printed electronics. The company is interested in seeking collaborators from overseas companies, in particular from Germany or France, to jointly participate in the following joint innovation opportunities: Germany-Singapore SME Funding Programme (Submission before 7 Dec 2021) Singapore-France Joint Innovation Project (Submission before 31 Dec 2021)
Enzyme Engineering Platform for Fast and Sustainable Production of Ingredients
Enzyme-based biocatalysts are increasingly used in various industrial applications. While improvement in quality attributes could be observed by utilising these biocatalysts, natural enzymes are often susceptible to low catalytic efficiency due to various externalities such as temperature and PH. Changes in consumer behaviour and surge in demand is driving biomanufacturing technology. Despite recent breakthroughs in enzyme engineering, the conquest to identify the right enzyme could still be a stumbling block for many firms. Screening millions of enzyme variants to discover the right enzyme would require years of R&D development and this could potentially set the company back by a few million dollars. A startup has developed an enzyme engineering platform to identify and engineer novel enzymes to counteract these issues via an environmentally friendly process. With proprietary microfluidics technology, the enzyme engineering platform can build and test millions of enzymes ten times faster than existing technologies while boosting the chance of success in developing the most effective enzymes by more than 200x. The startup supports the development process ranging from the screening of enzymes variants to complete service of engineering and scaling of desired enzymes to accelerate enzyme evolution for a wide range of applications.
Intelligent Video Analytics to Enhance Construction Worksite Safety
The Technology Offer is a computer vision system designed to enhance workspace safety through real-time detection of hazards and unsafe practices. By placing cameras at strategic locations around the worksite, and processing the video streams using artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms, the technology can automatically detect and alert operators of any safety breaches. The technology is also customizable for specific use-cases, safety violations, and different worksite environments.
Smart Cities Video Analytics via CCTV
This technology is intended to address the need of smart cities goals, by providing a video analytics solution that could enhance efficiency and sustainability of human traffic management. The technology contains two branches: Smart infrastructure branch provides video solutions for airport management by: Monitoring the length of taxi lines and detecting suspicious behaviour of travelers. Detecting roadblocks and accidents so as to better manage traffic flows. Additionally, if the algorithm embedded in the CCTV camera noted suspicious vehicular activities, the technology can support in detecting the car model, its travelling speed and registration plate for further tracking. Smart public services branch provides technology for managing crowd control by: Monitoring queues and large groups. Alerting crowd controllers or authorities if a crowd or a queue exceeds assigned threshold limits. Detecting violence e.g., a fight breaking out or suspicious behaviour such as camera tampering.
Smart Retail Video Analytics via CCTV
This technology offers video analytical solution for smarter and more effective retail management.  The technology utilises cognitive media analytics to monitor customer demographics e.g., age, ethnicity and gender. The technology is able to classify the emotions of customers. It also analyses the number of people that pass or enter the store, as well as the behaviour of customers from the moment they arrive until the moment they exit.  The technology also support in analysing the presence of staff, thus ensuring that shoppers are properly attended to. This provides value in ensuring that shoppers are not forced to wait for long periods unattended.
Sub-Skin and Gut Microbiome Health Analysis by Smartphone App
Conventional diagnostic imaging of the skin involves the use of dermatoscopes. Dermatoscopes use skin surface microscopy to examine dermal and sub-dermal tissues to diagnose skin problems. However, these devices can be costly and provide a limited view of the immediate skin surface. This limitation meant that dermatoscopes have to be used in direct contact with the patient's skin. Because of this, they can only be used to image patients in the same physical location as the clinician conducting the examination. The overall result is that only a tiny portion of the global dermatology patient-base can be reached cost-effectively and efficiently. Telemedicine and telehealth network operations are rapidly developing ways to address patients broadly and at lower costs for them and their care providers. Yet, such tools neither deliver desmatoscope-like functionality nor improved it in way that it allows patients' skins to be examined and analysed during an online medical consultation with a general practitioner. In order to facilitate remote skin disease diagnosis, the use of software is required to acquire and share images in real-time and ideally, by the patients themselves. This software enables patients to take their medical sub-skin images with their mobile, tablet or laptop cameras, and securely share it with doctors. Crucially, dermatoscopy images can also be used with the technology to improve diagnostic accuracy. This technology is intended to position itself as a technology which when scaled-up, could allow for products that can enable optical biopsy and phototherapy. 
Integrated Sensor Gateway for Digitisation ( ISGD)
Current IoT Gateways in the market are industry/sector specific and do not have the ready-to-use built-in functions that can be easily adaptable/customised for quick deployment turnaround time. The ISGD has all the ready-to-use built in functions to link up network of physical devices, vehicles, home appliances, and other items embedded with electronics, software, sensors, actuators, and connectivity, which enables these things to connect and exchange data, creating opportunities for more direct integration of the physical world into computer-based systems. The ISGD is a versatile platform intended to be used in any IoT and many other applications. It provides most IoT and other common functions in industry. Users can ‘pick and choose’ the functions and deploy them quickly. Furthermore, it is highly flexible and expandable to many other functions. One example of ISGD application is in the medical and healthcare sector for monitoring the health and general well-being of senior citizens to ensure proper treatment is being administered. Other consumer devices to encourage healthy living, such as, connected scales or wearable heart monitors, are also a possibility with the ISGD.
Remote Data Acquisition for Failure Analysis
Monitoring and improving product reliability is a main concern in multi-stage manufacturing processes. The reduction of human labour in manufacturing plants coupled with shorter time to market is putting much pressure on some of the manual and tedious processes to generate timely and accurate test data. Specifically, for reliability testing, there is a need to subject the Device Under Test (DUT) to repetitive stresses over long periods of time. The unforeseeable change of material characteristics at different test stages or even pre-matured failures makes human monitoring and intervention a requirement. This repetitive nature of testing makes on-site human supervision ad nauseam. As a result, inaccurate data are often collected leading to skewed conclusions made in failure analyses. In view of the situation, there is a need for reliability testing process to take on a new approach in terms of monitoring and intervention. The Integrated Sensor Gateway for Digitisation (ISGD), coupled with a variety of customizable sensors and actuators, brings the advantages of Industry 4.0 manufacturing techniques to an industry application like product reliability testing. The ISGD, is versatile and utilizes various wired or wireless protocols for easy integration to existing industrial equipment. Detailed monitoring and data collection is also possible with the high performance micro-processors supporting the numerous sensors and actuators integrated. Now through a real-time contextualized dashboard, users of ISGD can gain minute control over the test system. Together with an optional Analytics platform, new trends of product behaviour can be discovered on top of regular test objectives.
