A challenge for technology using hyper-precision

How will the ability to obtain a position of a few centimeters affect our future cities, products and business models? Let us hear your ideas on how accurate and dynamic positioning data from the TAPAS platform can be part of the future Smart City and help answer urban challenges, such as a growing aging population, scarce resources, pollution and climate changes

Our modern space infrastructure open opportunities for technological innovation within positioning. Placed in the city of Aarhus, Denmark has a unique research and development platform using space data for hyper-precision called ‘Testbed in Aarhus for Precision positioning and Autonomous Systems’ (TAPAS). The TAPAS platform makes it possible to track or navigate moving objects in an urban environment on a city-wide centimeter-level hyper accuracy. What innovative product or solution, addressing societal needs, using accurate and dynamic positioning data from our TAPAS platform, can you envision? 

We invite all bright minds and innovators to take part in this Challenge by making use of TAPAS to create technological solutions addressing societal needs. As a participant in the TAPAS Challenge you will be eligible for technological support and advice from experts in hackathons, where you can pitch and frame your ideas towards commercialization. One hackathon takes place in DTU Skylab in October and one takes place at Aarhus University in November. Each hackathon will produce one winner – register for the hackathons here:

In Copenhagen: https://openinnovationx.dk/registration/

In Aarhus: https://aarhushacks.dk/tapashackathon/

The best ideas will be rewarded 20.000kr on a project account that will be earmarked into developing the proposal towards a commercial product. The winners will receive a pre-incubation training from Danish European Space Agency Business Incubator Center (ESA BIC), where experts will coach in order to develop and mature the proposal idea in both technical and business aspects. A successful maturation of the proposal could bring big opportunities for being included into the formal ESA BIC incubation process where the start-up will receive 50.000 euros.

This is a platform that would make indoor positioning possible

We have derived algorithms and data structures for storing maps of where scooters can be parked. This is extended with a easy way to record new areas for parking and making it easier for the companies to uphold these areas.

MAPAS makes use of both TAPAS and LIDER to remotely estimate the distance of any surface.

MAPAS is indented to help mostly Aarhus Havn to measure subsidence of newly embedded soil but could have also potential uses in both cities and/or agriculture.

Digital Optimized Guide (DOG) is an automatically digital guiding system useful for people with vision difficulties or robots. The purpose of DOG is to replace the guide dog and cane, using a camera and the TAPAS system.
