Our two ESA BIC Bavaria startups TerraLoupe and Terraplasma Medical were mentioned as below in the Magazine ”Gateway – das magazine aus dem gate” in the section “News of the Munich startup scene”.
The pioneering Artificial Intelligence (AI) computer vision startup and ESA BIC Bavaria alumni TerraLoupe creates a new basis for autonomous driving through an intelligent analysis of aerial image data. The technology of the company is based on AI and allows the efficient and highly automated generation of digital map material. For the first time, this allows to recognise and process objects and infrastructures on a large scale, in order to leverage autonomous driving. Therefore TerraLoupe is able to record road networks very precisely with centimetre accuracy.
Terraplasma Medical GmbH
The startup is developing an innovation for wound treatment. Infections caused by pathogenic bacteria provide a growing challenge for in the healthcare sector causing considerable costs. Based on a technology patented at the Max Planck Institute for Extraterrestrial Physics, terraplasma medical GmbH is developing a portable, battery-powered cold plasma device – plasma care – for the treatment of chronic and acute wounds for the professional market. The plasma care enables the inactivation of all sorts of bacteria in the wound – including particularly dangerous and resistant germs such as MRSA – without causing any pain, side effects or allergic reactions.
Terraplasma Medical joins the ESA Business Incubation Centre Bavaria in Oberpfaffenhofen two years ago.
The ESA BIC Bavaria seeks entrepreneurs using space technologies in a non-space environment. That does not mean rocket science, but applies to multiple application fields such as navigation and positioning, communications techniques, Earth observation, materials, processes, signals or robotics.
Are you interested in joining our network and do you have an innovative idea yourself? Then have a look at the details of the ESA BIC Bavaria programme. ESA BIC Bavaria has four selection rounds each year. The next application deadline for the incubation programme is 01 September 2017. Apply now for ESA BIC Bavaria
