A new bauma Open Innovation project tests the innovative spirit and ideas of the “solver community”. The challenge in this instance is to come up with a sensor for locking systems, these sensors being very susceptible to faults due to environmental influences. The solutions and the results are processed anonymously by the experts and forwarded directly to the publisher of the challenge. To take part in the project, registration is required, at: www.openinnovation.bauma.de.
This latest challenge, commissioned as part of the bauma Open Innovation initiative, has a wide range of requirements: A leading German manufacturer of access systems wants to improve an access solution that has already been developed and is in use. The innovative solution they are looking for should offer greater user-comfort and be significantly more robust than the existing system. The main goal is to make the technology more resistant to environmental influences and thereby deliver an improved user experience.
