Lloyd's Register, 12/20/2018
Startups in areas such as AI, computer vision and behavior recognition were the winners in the second round of the Lloyd’s Register Safety Accelerator’s ‘SafetyTech Innovation Day’.
The day gave 11 startup finalists the chance to pitch their cutting-edge solutions to some of the most urgent safety challenges within the marine, energy and critical infrastructure industries.
The Safety Accelerator brings together startups and corporate industry leaders to work together to solve critical safety challenges using digital technology. The program, launched by Lloyd’s Register Foundation and LR in partnership with Plug and Play earlier this year, supports digital innovation in safety by funding collaborative trials of new and emerging, high potential solutions to tackle tough safety challenges set by corporate industry partners. In this second Round of challenges, the Safety Accelerator focused on four challenges to improve how complex safety risks are detected and managed in challenging industrial environments.
