8. PurrMetrixThe PurrMetrix product measures, logs and analyses a range of important environmental variables – temperature, humidity, CO2, occupancy. You can use it to quickly build a deep understanding of the conditions affecting anything: from your greenhouse to a housing estate. By collecting high quality data from exactly where you need and making it easy to visualise where it comes from, they can help you make sense of what is happening. And by providing a range of analytical tools, alerts and reports they make it simple to dig deeper into your data and take the right actions.

9. Concept 13they constantly review and sell the very best sensors, install the most resilient gateways and configure the most stable networks, aiming to drive success and generate value. They also offer consultancy in IoT projects, technology selection, network architecture and innovation design. We help business using proven products, custom sensors or architected private deployments.

10. EmbeverEmbever have developed an energy efficient cloud-to-device-communication service for low-power IoT devices. “Embever Core” is a cloud-based middleware designed for developers to connect battery-powered IoT devices with their web applications in an easy and energy-efficient way. Embever provides firmware and hardware components for the devices that use optimized protocols to communicate with the Embever Core. The Embever Firmware enables devices to fall into deep sleep mode and to synchronize with the middleware depending on flexible settings. The intelligent messaging cache system of Embever Core ensures that no data gets lost while the devices are in deep sleep mode.

11. Swytch Technologies LtdSwytch are on a mission to make electric transport more affordable for everyone in the world so that it becomes a legitimate form of transport. We’re putting the UK on the map as the centre for electric transport through applying innovative British engineering, the same that delivered Spitfire to the world, they even have a Bluetooth app to go with the e-bike. Expect a demo of their e-bike and an introduction to electric bike sharing schemes…

12. Horusis a predictive monitoring platform to prevent expensive machine failures in plant and heating ventilation and air conditioning environments. Unexpected machine maintenance is an expensive problem for facilities management companies. Outages can cost hundreds of thousands of pounds per day. These failures lead to disruption of production, a lack of availability, and cause further lasting damage in machines which, if not detected, lead to further additional costly failures. Replacing periodic manual inspection with high visibility 24×7 automated coverage, their solution includes a small, low-cost, intelligent device designed to monitor the temperature, vibration and acoustic characteristics of machines. It determines when human inspection and/or servicing is required, removing the need for ad hoc manual monitoring.

13. Dovetailed will be demonstrating their nūfood 3D printing robot, by using a simple smartphone interface and a selection of ready-made flavour boxes, the robot can design and create unique shapes, explore exciting flavour pairings and bring fun back into food. Your perfect host to a dinner party or a family meal! Nūfood can also add intense flavour bursts to your favourite drinks. Using a digital flavour robot, you can add individual pearls of flavour to a drink or have bespoke 3D shapes that you can pop into a cocktail. Users can receive a few individually chosen flavours in the regular subscription box that arrives on your doorstep or select what types of flavours interest you and receive a selection or choose to receive random new flavours each month and let your creativity go wild.

14. See.Sensea cycling technology and data company that helps make cycling safer and cities smarter. It’s patented, connected products use advanced sensor technology and AI to improve cyclist safety, while crowd sourcing real-time environmental and transport data and insights for cities.
