Submission deadline January 15, 2018
Build a mobile and versatile digital prototype that performs a 4-eyes-check which can be used in many different scenarios and be trained by any qualified employee.
A 4-eyes check is the verification of a successful outcome by a second person. In some industries like the pharmaceutical industry these 4-eyes-checks can be required by regulations.
Illustration of a visual check performed by a single person in an industrial context.
Capture the situation with a mobile camera, process the image, and perform the actual check. The result of the check either confirms or rejects the finding of the operator. It ends with the documentation of the Ditigal4Eyes check.
Learning makes these solutions versatile. Qualified personnel must be able to train the Digital4Eyes solution on new scenarios without the support of experts.
Recognize the state of a system and confirm if it is in the desired state or not.
Recognize if a polished surface is clean. Differentiate shadows or reflections from product residue.
Identify blisters, cartons, leaflets or parts of them in a production line to make sure the all these items are cleared during the transition from one package run to the next.
During the final event these scenarios will be used to evaluate the solutions. The flexibility of the solutions will be tested using variations of the three scenarios.
Please use our online submission form and include title, a detailed description of your proposed solution and a high level plausible project plan. We expect carefully thought through projects rather than ideas. You and your team should be able to develop the proposed solution. There are no restrictions on platforms or technologies. Please do NOT submit any proprietary or confidential information or source code. You can upload a file to the submission to be more explicit.
All submissions will be reviewed by the Bayer Grants4Tech team, and six finalist teams will be selected to take part in the competition and the finalist event. The selection decision is made at the entire discretion of Bayer without any obligation to explain. We will inform all participants of our decision.
We will be in regular exchange with you to follow your development. During the first weeks of February finalists will be invited (at Sponsor costs see rules and prizes for further details) to a Sponsor Site. There you can gather all necessary information and examples regarding the three scenarios.
All 6 finalists will be invited to present their solution at a public event end of May. Costs for travel, accommodation and transport will be covered by Sponsor. Details of the finalist event and award ceremony will be given in due time.
In the online submission form, please share with us the details of your approach.
