Smart Signs Solutions nominated for the Dutch innovation award

Smart environments
Smart Signs Solutions is specialised in personalised dynamic way finding. Its mission is to deliver dynamic information for the right person at the right time and the right place. The applications can be used in hospitals, airports, cruise ships, exhibitions, universities, hotels, musea and offices. By using Smart Signs Solutions people can find their way faster, make less mistakes so don’t get lost and feel more at ease in big environments. Needless to say that this is very convenient for users. 

Imagine
For instance a hospital environment with personalised dynamic way finding. In this smart environment screens give personalised signage information because they pick up radio signals of a tag that patients wear. This means that one will be in time for the next survey or appointment and that finding your way around is easy. No need to fear anymore that you will get lost somewhere in a hospital wing.  But indeed, finding your way is not the same as arriving in the right room. The proof of the pudding is that the patient will see a screen next to the right door with a message that one can enter the right treatment room.

EIT ICT Labs Business Acceleration
Smart Signs is part of the Business Acceleration Programme of EIT ICT Labs. This means that it is coached intensively from setting up the business plan, getting pitch training to finding venture capital and direct support in how to get it. Smart Signs Solutions will be provided with a soft landing to internationalise the products. The international soft landing is intended to run from Eindhoven to the EIT ICT Labs network of the nodes in Berlin, Paris, Helsinki, Trento, Stockholm. The focus now is on a soft landing in Germany where the Smart Signs Solution for dynamic way finding, may be unrolled in a German hospital environment.

Alain le Loux, Business Accelerator of the Co-Location Eindhoven who coached this start-up says: ‘Smart Signs Solutions is a spin-off of the University of Twente, a core partner in the collaboration of EIT ICT Labs Eindhoven. Smart Signs fits perfectly in the strategy of EIT ICT Labs to boost innovative solutions into the market and at the same time addressing societal challenges. This EIT-ICT Labs start-up deserves the nomination but we are not there yet. First we have to pitch for the jury and who knows… hopefully we win the Spider Award 2012’.
