Two billion meals are collected manually every year in company restaurants in Germany. This not only leads to long waiting times for diners, but also generates high costs for operators. A solution must and can be found for communal catering that saves personnel costs and enables higher turnover at peak times.
auvisus enables automation of the checkout process through artificial intelligence in image processing. The tray is placed under the camera, the algorithm recognizes and classifies the dishes on the tray and payment can be completely automated.

In the project DekomTex the founders realized as a world novelty an ECG belt, with which a multi-channel ECG can be derived on heart failure patients, which meets very high diagnostic requirements with regard to signal quality and at the same time has a high wearing comfort, which is important for the wearer.
Vision of corvolution is the clinical thermometer for the ECG. So a system usable by laymen for the medical evaluation of the heart rhythm without doctor contact in the home environment.

RESTUBE (Spin-off 2012)
The startup RESTUBE was founded in 2012 by two graduated mechanical engineers and water sports enthusiasts from Karlsruhe. While kitesurfing on the open sea, a dicey situation arose in which Christopher Fuhrhop wished he had a small, lightweight, personal water rescue device.
A quick pull of the trigger, and in seconds the Restube rescue buoy inflates to full size. The completely new safety product not only excites water sports enthusiasts all over the world, but also the top-class expert jury of the German Founders Award.
Restube GmbH was awarded the German Founders' Prize 2015 in Berlin in the "StartUp" category. This means that the business idea of Christopher Fuhrhop, a mechanical engineer from Pforzheim and founder of Restube GmbH, prevailed against a broad field of applicants from Germany.
