Smart systems are already saving time and money in all industries. It is becoming an essential function, an indispensable requirement, that a system is connected to other systems and, if possible, capable of performing/ controlling processes/operations automatically.
Here are some of the developments that the Arteries team has carried out in the field of smart systems, be it in building services, healthcare, agriculture, forestry, logistics or even gastronomy. But first, a little introduction…
Naturally, these new smart systems will also have to adapt to the changing sophistication of our customers’ existing systems. In some cases the operation is so manual that even a status feedback is considered a smart system, in others it is a complex robotic solution driven by a unique artificial intelligence. What is a smart system and what makes it smart varies widely. And there is nothing wrong with that.
It’s important not to overdo it, not to chase dreams: development should be preceded by an honest self-examination. What are we ready for, what do we have the data for, and what real impact can the desired improvement achieve? Is it worth the investment, etc. Arteries can also help you to think about these issues, or at least advise you.
If the desired improvement is calculated to pay for itself, or to create added value that differentiates us in the market and thus indirectly increases results, then it is worth making a detailed system design for the solution. Our software and hardware system design (architect) colleagues are eager to help at this point.
But without being exhaustive, what systems have we been involved in developing in recent years that qualify as smart systems?
1. We have developed smart home system components for a partner who has been in the market for about 30 years with their unique solutions.
2. We created a camera-based intelligent analysis system for the automatic truck wash system installed in the USA: the aim was to detect contamination and control the wash program, and we also created a data collection and monitoring iPad application.
3. We have designed a smart camera plant monitoring system for vineyards, where drones will fly around the vineyard and collect data with their cameras. We mapped vegetation index with multispectral cameras and measured phosphorus content. In areas with poor vegetation, we used close-up camera images to investigate abnormal plant development: using artificial intelligence for disease detection.
4. Drone thermal imagery was used for game census, recording of game movements, and game damage analysis and forecasting. But we have also been asked to carry out automatic 3D scanner analysis and value estimation of antlers/prey, for example.
5. On demand, our gastronomic partner can use user feedback and ratings to generate customized food combinations using artificial intelligence. For the next meal, the system can make suggestions and generate a customized menu according to our tastes and nutritional goals.
6. We have created an artificial intelligence-augmented indoor navigation system or vehicle tracking system, where we also collect and analyse the vehicle’s measurable parameters in the cloud.
7. At our manufacturing partner, we have developed smart tools for measuring phase times and tracking production recipes as an improvement to traditional manufacturing, and the data collected will be used for the purpose of production optimisation.
8. For our transport partner, we created an artificial intelligence system based on a unique neural model that performs a competitive analysis and reactive, smart pricing. This allows us to maximise profit and optimise pricing with minimal manual work.
9. We have developed a smartphone app and cloud-based data collection system to control and monitor fitness machines, maximising the efficiency of workout work and making the use of the machines safer.
10. We implemented smartphone-based automatic analysis of rapid health tests for one of our partners: colour analysis of discolouring lab indicators, evaluation of results with smart devices, AI.
11. We developed an ozone generator disinfector: we built the elements of an automatic ozone disinfector ecosystem connected to the cloud: we had embedded development here, controlling the ozone generator, the ozone destroyer, the external sensors, and communicating with the cloud and receiving commands from it. We also developed the cloud system and a control mobile application for remote monitoring and management functions.
12. We also had fun projects, such as the development of a smart advent calendar that plays music, rotates, opens at the right time, can be programmed and controlled from a smartphone… etc. It was a “brain drum” kind of development. 🙂
13. We have developed a mobile app-based automated public parking system that automatically starts, stops and pays for parking.
We could go on, but the bottom line is: what we can imagine today that smart software or hardware can do, we can probably actually do!

We are passionate about creating something that comes to life, that works, and that serves the well-being of companies and people. Which creates harmony between machine and human. That helps us to overcome problems and live a better life, where we don’t run machines, but have time to live. We want to make this mission a reality in as many places as possible.
If you have an idea for a challenge or problem to solve, we’d love to help!
Not only will you be happy with the result, but we’ll be very proud of it too.
