Demo market of smart products by engineering students in collaboration with companies, preceded by a lecture of Prof. Maarten Weyn.

Engineering students from the Ghent University Campus Kortrijk create smart products of the future in collaboration with Flemish companies.

Chemical weed control is a thing of the past with the AI-driven robo-wieder. The harvest can then be transported to the city via autonomous electric boats. Meanwhile, our DIY sensing system measures the micro-climate in your forest in real-time and shares this worldwide. Other sensing systems measure the bio-data of children with epilepsy or use your heart rate when you are dancing as an input signal for the DJ to be completely in sync with the audience. 

During the demo market you will also come face to face with artificial lungs that take over your breathing rhythm and let you gradually relax. Or use a VR periscope to see all upcoming events of the Arhus library come to life …

These and other future products will be presented during an interactive demo exhibition at the Industrial Design Center at the UGent Campus Kortrijk. The fair will be preceded by an inspiring lecture (at 4 pm) from inventor / professor Maarten Weyn who has already produced similar products in Team Scheire.
