Shareway

Shareway

 

Problem summary

There is a huge potential of private parking spots with a very low utilization rate in the city centers.

In addition, more than 80% of the drivers experience some level of stress while parking.

What are people forced to do now because what you plan to make doesn't exist yet?

People drive around blocks trying to find available parking spots, which already exist - without the permission to park there. Right now people with those said spots are forced to find people needing them via social media channels, billboards etc. and making the rental actions themselves in person. Our platform does this and even more: no-one would do individual rentals with other people just for working hours, but this is possible with Shareway.

Solution summary

We make it easy and affordable to park in other people's free parking spots, therefore bringing more options for drivers to park. Parking spot owners can control when their parking spots are free for others to use, and they earn money from every rental of their spot.

3AWater

3AWater

Problem summary

Monitoring the metal levels of waters is slow and ineffective with the present laboratory technologies. For example, mines cannot control their waters properly creating a risk of exceeding their discharge limits, which leads to environmental issues, fines, bad reputation and ultimately decreased stock value.

What are people forced to do now because what you plan to make doesn't exist yet?

Current technique to measure metal contents of water is to send water samples to laboratories. The delay between taking samples and getting the results is typically several days. Therefore, up to date data on metal levels does not exist and it is impossible to react to any anomalies quickly. This creates uncertainty regarding the environmental impact of industrial sites and increases the risks of exceeding the discharge quotas. It also makes tracing unexpected sources of heavy metals in nature slow.

The real-time measurements are also valuable for monitoring enrichment processes especially in the mines with closed water circulation. In the western mining industry, the water is increasingly being circulated within the mining site to minimize environmental impact of the mine by reducing amount of water discharged to nature. However, build-up of certain metals in the circulated waters is a common problem making it difficult to operate the enrichment processes in optimal level.

Solution summary

3AWater offers a portable device to measure metal content of waters real-time on-site. The real-time data enables mines to monitor their waters effectively and take immediate actions, when anomalies e.g. leaks are detected. 3AWater system is connected to cloud service and transfers the data there with GPS coordinates for easy access of results.
