Nordic laser tech to save bees wins at Hello Tomorrow in Paris
<![CDATA[Danish startup FaunaPhotonics won the Agro track prize and 15.000 euro at Hello Tomorrow Global Summit in Paris this Friday. 4500 applicants, 80 finalists, 12 tracks. Hello Tomorrow Global Summit concluded this Friday with the Global Challenge Grand Finale – and a Danish success; FaunaPhotonics won the Agro track and 15.000 euro.
FaunaPhotonics, an Accelerace alumni, has developed a laser, a system known as lidar, which works like radar but with laser instead of radio waves. With it, they monitor insects to ensure sustainable crop utilisation and to improve pest control and biodiversity.
“By bringing a new technology to the market, we will fill gaps in knowledge of insect populations, leading to more sustainable agricultural production and improvements in insect control. On our journey, we will make insect monitoring and risk assessment easier for our customers,” the company state on their website.
