The award-winning projects:
Sonar – sales success through the analysis of digital body language , the winning project in the “Business Ideas” category by Stephan Buttgereit from the University of Bremen is a technology solution for optimizing marketing in the area of e-commerce . Good salespeople are able to use the body language of their customers to decide which products are most likely to buy and when. But what about online trading? Statistics show that around 97 percent of users leave a website without buying anything and never return. The AI-based technology analyzes the mouse movements of the customers: inside and translates them into a kind of “digital body language”. This can be used to identify patterns that suggest satisfaction, attention, and interest. In this way, Sonar supports e-commerce and digital companies to improve the addressing of their website users and to optimize advertising measures.

Making the installation of ceiling or wall lamps safer, that is the goal of the runner-up in the category “Business Ideas” Sebastian Böttjer, Kai Grozos and Robin Hinz. The adapter system Ladd promises installation without drilling or fiddling with open power sources , through which any commercially available ceiling lamp can be plugged in. The system consists of two individual components: the ceiling part is attached to the ceiling, the lamp part to the luminaire to be installed. Two clicks, done. The standard version is supplemented by a smart version that is compatible with common smart home solutions.

With the interactive Couchbummel app (3rd place in the “Business Ideas ” category), online shopping will become a live shopping event . The joint project of the University and University of Bremen consists of the team Tim Görlitz, Max Janßen-Müller, Louis Lippmann, Jennifer Schröder and Torsten von Bültzingslöwen. Retailers present their range in a live stream. Via live chatinteract with customers and advise them virtually. This enables customers to assess the products better and make more informed purchasing decisions than when shopping through an anonymous online shop. The integrated shop system makes it possible to order the products on offer directly in the app.

Skin therapy in your own four walls – Janina Clasen, Jan Elsner, Maria Eugenia Lima de Araujo and Dr. Jens Pelzetter, the winners in the “Business Concepts ” category, Skinuvitadeveloped. For 30 years, phototherapy in dermatological practices has been the most compatible and cost-effective treatment method for skin problems such as psoriasis, neurodermatitis or vitiligo. However, frequent sessions within a short period of time are required for successful treatment. Many people such as employed people, single parents or residents of rural regions are often unable to manage this in terms of time. Skinuvita is a telemedicine software system that enables accompanied UV home therapy that meets these prescription requirements. With the help of a therapy manager to create, monitor and adjust the therapy plans, a therapy app for the patients and a bluetooth control module, with which the medical staff operates the therapy device, phototherapy can be carried out at home.

Second place in this category went to Miguel Bebensee, Laura Elbers and Lina Soffner from the Bremen University of Applied Sciences with their mediation platform Equalchamps – a match for equal opportunities in competitive sport . An algorithm ensures the right sponsorship especially for competitive athletes. Because so far 93 percent of sports sponsorship has gone to men’s sport. With their start-up they want to achieve a long-term rethink in society and companies.

WeserCAD – everything under one roof by Hasim Kavak, Siegfried Petkovic and Florian Jannis Schnakenberg from the Bremen University of Applied Sciences took third place in the “Business Concepts” category. The project offers various CAD services at a fixed price for the building trade and architecture, craft, institutions and private users.

Very different engineering skills are combined in a compact way under one roof.
