Partnering opportunity

Seeking partners for a machine that observes the visibility distance with deep learning and scientific method of data analysis by applying artificial intelligence technology


A Korean SME is a laboratory company established in 2016 to develop effective environment industrial measurements. They developed the optical visibility meter with KRISS (Korea Research Institute of Standard and Science) in 2015. The company is open to commercial agreement with technical assistance for their advanced technology to be applied on the existing visibility meter.

Partner sought

- Type of partner sought: SME, larger company, research institutions - Specific area of activity of the partner: Wired communication equipment manufacturing - Task to be performed: The Korean company's technology should be commercialized for the usages in the weather sensor for instance under commercial agreement with technical assistance.


A Korean company has specialized in development of A.I (Artificial Intelligent) visibility system to be applied on image visibility meter equipped with weather sensor with light-receiving part and light-emitting part. The product enables to improve the accuracy of the measurement of the corrective distance (40% compared to the existing accuracy) compared to the conventional visibility meter with much more simplified installation. The company comes up with the idea because conventional visibility meter determines the distance only by text, and the text information is used to improve the reliability by using the correct visibility information observed in the optical visual system . Their product uses three-dimensional system, provides image data and text data for more intuitive weather recognition, which improves reliability. Moreover, since it’s small size and installed easily, which leads the reduction of the installation site eventually. With these improved functions, the company wishes to take the form of partnerships under commercial agreement with technical assistance in order to contribute to visibility machines to be used in the weather sensor.

Advantages and innovations

- Miniaturization: it is possible to install the product in a small space because it is smaller than existing equipment - Ease of installation: it is easy to install due to the reduction of the installation site and also reduces the installation cost - Image data addition: although the data of the existing product was provided only as a numerical value, SME's developed method displays the numerical value simultaneously with the image - Intuitive: provides text data and image data for more intuitive weather recognition - Improvement of reliability: the existing visibility system is two-dimensional and only the local area is measured, and the reliability of the data became a problem. The products developed by SME are used to analyze the data three-dimensionally with high accuracy - Evidence data: developed data can be used as proof data in the event of an accident, such as data being stored as images - Price competitiveness: compared to the existing optical system using the optical system, the cost, and the maintenance cost are comparatively high - Product usability and scalability: using the algorithm developed, it can be applied to various fields such as automobile camera market, autonomous navigation market, autonomous ship market, unmanned lighthouse, fire detection as well as weather observation.

How it works

  • Tell us about yourself
  • We’ll discuss with you
  • We put the right partners in touch

EEN help you find the right partner, rather than you going it alone.

Our role is to review and collate the most suitable submissions, and then send them to the client who posted the opportunity. We consult with you, and the client, to make the process professional and easy.

These are live opportunities. Your registration of interest on the site is just like a professional approach to a business at a networking event. To stand the best chance of success, make your submission really sing. Sell why the client who posted the opportunity should work with you. Excite them. Ask questions. Try and avoid copy and pasting words from elsewhere.

Once the client has chosen their partner, we'll introduce them over email and keep in touch with both parties to see how it's going. Sometimes things progress quickly. Sometimes because of changing priorities for either party, things progress slowly, but you never know - your next big business break could start right here.
