What does Nextcam do?
NextCam is designed to reduce the risk of accidents in industry and civil construction through computer vision and AI using smart cameras which generate indicators for supporting decision-making in order to identify whether professionals are using the correct safety equipment and following the necessary safety procedures.
Weekly reports are generated together with statistics and suggestions for improvements as well as daily cards on Whatsapp permitting direct monitoring of the human resource as well as the estimated risk. The indicators allow measurement of capacity to act on decisions, showing which solutions are the most effective and permitting that these are adopted before accidents occur. They will also show which teams need more attention and which aspect of training has the greater importance in relation to the use of PPEs, thus enabling the establishment of patterns in common which are the cause of accidents, such as unsafe behavior, and helping those responsible for Occupational Safety to act accordingly. In addition, should there already be infrastructure installed at a particular location, NextCam can work with our own intelligent software in the images and existing cameras.
The business model is based on cost of installation as well as a monthly recurring fee per camera

Growing in the shade of solar power
Whether it’s in temperate climates or more arid regions, co-locating crops and solar panels is a win-win solution. The idea of co-locating photovoltaics and agriculture was first suggested in 1981 by Adolf Goetzberger and Armin Zastrow and it has progressed in Japan since 2004 under the impetus of Akira Nagashima. Many types of crops such as citrus fruits, cucumbers, rice and vines can benefit. The technique...I'm interested
Towards a carbon neutral agriculture
According to the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs, by 2050 more than 66% of the 9 billion people on earth will live in cities, up from 43% today. That’s nearly 3 billion more city dwellers than in 2020. This growing urban population will mean that more food will have to be produced as close to cities as possible and with cleaner and cleaner energy.I'm interested
