FULL DESCRIPTION

A Greek SME specialized in the Internet of Things (both hardware and software) for the maritime industry has developed a smart life jacket which combines safety, comfort and customised technology. The small but dynamic team that make up this company have a unique combination of skills and expertise, which enables them to link information science with the sports leisure sector.

Through keen observation and practical experience, they identified that there is a significant problem of safety in the water. Hypothermia is the number one cause of death in water-related accidents, while rescue teams often encounter potentially dangerous delays in tracking people in the ocean. With the Greek client’s smart life jacket, both of these major problems have been solved.

The company has limited resources in terms of the production side, so it is now in need of a partner that can take on the manufacture of this innovative product. It is therefore looking for a sports equipment producer with the necessary experience and capacity for manufacturing these types of products.


Partner expertise sought:

- Type of partner sought: The partner should ideally be an existing producer of sports equipment with the necessary experience and capacity for manufacturing these types of products.
- Specific area of activity of the partner: The Greek client is looking for a sports equipment producer, preferably in Europe and ideally in a country with strong martime / water sports sector, with the necessary experience and capacity for manufacturing these types of products.


Advantages & innovations:

The smart life jacket has two main features. Firstly, the heating system keeps the core body tempertature of the castaway warm while the rescue teams are looking for him/her. Secondly, the real-time tracking system reduces the rescue time by 80-90%.
