As an agile innovation agency, collaboration is in our DNA.  We are very keen to hear from anybody who has skills, ideas or expertise that could potentially help us and our clients realise their goals ambitions for change and innovation.  

Our goal is always to consider the commercial outputs sought for all participants. 

When delivering agile innovation projects we often work with partners to offer sponsored projects, as well as contributions for time and efforts. 

Further we have a reputation for and seek to enable funding for outputs such as R&D, POC, Design and Deliver projects.

We are always on the lookout for new collaborators, partners and expert associates.  Please don't hesitate to get in touch.

National initiatives you can engage in:

Our projects vary a lot (which is a great part of working here at +ADD!), but there are some typical goals:

  • Supporting insight and data driven innovation
  • Developing new strategies
  • Creating new business models
  • Designing new services and products
  • Collaborative R&D and Proof of Concepts (POC's)
  • Prototyping new technology enabled solutions
  • Developing business cases

Types of activities:

As our initiatives are seeking fresh thinking and new ideas UK wide; we offer a wide range of ways to engage:

  • Technology showcases and demonstrations
  • Innovation events, Flash talks to target audiences
  • Consortia for R&D and Proof of Concepts (POC's)
  • Rapid prototyping of concepts and initiatives
  • Open challenges and sandpits
  • Design and innovation sprints
  • Sponsored Hackathons (often paid to hack places)
  • Funded R&D and Proof of Concepts (POC's) projects

Below are a selection of our current projects.

The leakage reduction team at South East Water is looking for ways to improve prevention of bursts on their distribution mains using their existing data.

Using historical data, the hackathon provides an opportunity for interested parties and potential vendors to develop and demonstrate new analysis models and tools for identifying and prioritising leakage events and new approaches to distribution main leakage management, with focus on identifying and prioritising 7-day and 60-day targets before mains failure.   

29th - 30th October, Dartford. Free to participate.

Solving a leak in the road, or replacing an asset is more complex than first appears.

SES Water (based in Redhill) are seeking to work with the broader industry to improve the efficiency of reinstatement .

The process is presently very complex involving three site visits and often meaning repeat disruptions to traffic over a period of months.

There are many stakeholders and processes involved from preliminary issue evaluations to licensing and commissioning works, materials and equipment selection and operational delivery of different repair streetworks services.

Can you help streamline the process at SES Water?  Click here to find out more and get involved:

CReating smart(er) cities with LoRA

iot2a.jpg

SMART applications have improved the way we interact and are addressing some of the biggest challenges facing cities and communities: climate change, pollution control, early warning of utility issues. Businesses are benefiting too, through improvements in operations and efficiencies as well as reduction in costs.

Developing smart sensors and city wide test beds...

We are delighted that +ADD has been selected to support Small and Medium sized business engagement in LPWAN test bed rollouts with great partners such as BT, the national Digital Catapult and others.

As part of this work we are focussing on supporting topical and programme engagement for LoRa (as Long range, low power wireless platform are the prevailing technology choice for building smarter networks worldwide).

This wireless RF technology is being integrated into cars, street lights, manufacturing equipment, home appliances, utility monitoring devices, domestic appliances, beds and wearables. LoRa Technology is making our world a SMART Planet.

Predicting pollution and reducing internal flooding

 

What’s next

Following the success of the programme, we are now:

  • Organising re-trial of novel mixed sensor solutions.

  • Developing RTD programmes

  • Supporting the development of a tender release (October/ November 2018)

 

Protecting the environment and seeking to reduce higher category event impacts...

Pollution and internal flooding incidents are rare but when they occur they cause major impacts on communities and the environment. 

We are working with UK clients to enable data and technology driven innovation across a range of themes in this arena.  One of  our areas of focus is 'Rising Mains'. 

Over 2018 we are delivering an integrated programme on innovation support to realise practical solutions including data and informatics, new sensor driven insights and decision making solutions.

We are running a programme with a focus on rising mains and waste network asset intelligence. 

As part of the programme we are delivering a series of contemporary open innovation events to support Yorkshire water co-design and implement intelligent networks.

visual brand expression in product design

It's rare brands create a visual signature that can transcend product categories...

We are presently working with highly successful brands in the furniture space to support category diversification from beds and bedding to upholstery.  While there are many iconic brands which have a unique design essence it is challenging to capture and transfer this across diverse products.

We are managing a design programme to do just this.  Calling creatives, product designers and engineers...

Our event is about meeting designers who can help now and in the future.

There are funded spaces available.  Click here to find out more.

We are currently working to create optimised models for resource utilisation and scheduling...

Our client is seeking to explore potential for decision optimisation across several departments and asset groups using secondary tools to refine decision models.

The project will explore the use of genetic algorithms to optimise scheduling with live data feeds to accelerate the experiment.

We are actively seeking big data and analytical expertise.  To find out more and get involved please contact us.
