The MOVUS machine learning algorithms learn the "Steady" state of your equipment.

Knowing the rate of change from a machine's steady-state, reveals information that is important to estimate the time to failure.

Machine learning determines what is "Normal" and what is "Abnormal".

The initial learning period identifies the "Steady State" of the equipment being monitored. Anomalies are detected when conditions move outside the steady state.

Understanding anomalies and the rate at which they migrate from the normal state is key to predictive analytics.

As anomalies appears, trigger points and alarms are launched.

\n

A BIG data player, the developer of a fleet management software suite and a mining industry safety system creator are among the 12 companies taking\n part in the next Energise program

\n
\n

\n

Energise is a 12-week energy and natural resources accelerator program run by KPMG Australia. It will conclude in early 2017.

\n

Start-ups entering Energise get access to a mentor panel that includes expertise from international and local entrepreneurs and innovation specialists.

\n

KMPG Australia also provides support to the Energise start-ups in areas such as company set-up, product development and market insight.

\n

The program is supported by major natural resources companies including South32, Wesfarmers Chemicals Energy & Fertilisers, Woodside and Chevron Australia.

\n

Due to the Australia-wide increase in applications this year seven companies will be based in Perth and, for the first time, five will take part in Brisbane.

\n

Energise program director Ashley Brown said the scale of the success of last year’s participants showed the opportunities for start-ups to solve some of\n the sector’s major problems.

\n

“This time we are continuing the journey by focusing on supporting both start-ups and our corporate partners on how to make innovation a reality,” he said.

\n

“For both sides of the equation it’s a win-win situation and we expect to see some really exciting new technology and approaches brought to life during\n Energise.”

\n

This year Energise will culminate with a graduation night where each start-up will pitch to investors, industry partners and guests with awards on offer\n for the strongest start-ups on the night.

\n

Last year eight start-ups secured more than $450,000 worth of contracts and pilots within 12 weeks of starting the program.

\n

KPMG WA chairman Gary Smith said the company had been overwhelmed by the quality of applicants.

\n

“We’ve selected the Energise cohort based on feedback from our corporate partners and other experts on how new ideas and technologies can help tackle the\n industry’s productivity, efficiency and innovation challenges,” he said.

\n

“Energise is about bridging the innovation gap between start-ups and industry – and we believe we can build upon last year’s success and bring fresh thinking\n to established players, while similarly paving the way for start-ups to work with major enterprises within the sector.”

\n

The enterprises joining Energise in Brisbane are:

\n
    \n
  • Encoin, which is using blockchain technology to accelerate the adoption of renewable energy. Encoin is an energy token – a cryptocurrency – that rewards\n distributed energy generation and storage;
  • \n
  • High performance battery system designer Energetique. Its battery system is designed to deliver next generation motive technologies and leading edge\n Internet-of-Things connectivity to primary industries, military, utilities and government;
  • \n
  • MOVUS, which created the FitMachine that allows continuous monitoring of equipment without the need for remote inspections;
  • \n
  • Ozius Spatial, which has created environmental monitoring and land management decision support tool Naxia; and
  • \n
  • Petra Data Science, which extracts value from mining data assets using machine learning, data science and visualisation to develop easy to implement\n analytics and prediction solutions.
  • \n
\n

In Perth the Energise players are:

\n
    \n
  • GotSkill creator Artes Global Group. GotSkill is an online platform where skilled workers manage their verified skills and connect with employers,\n recruiters and trainers;
  • \n
  • Clearview Well Services, which has developed a multifunction tool for surveying and cleaning oil and gas wells and associated equipment in well production\n and performance;
  • \n

  "body": "

\n

START-UPS will soon have access to crowd funding to raise equity for their business under new legislation being rolled out by the federal government.\n

\n

The legislation allows unlisted public companies with less than $25 million in assets and annual turnover to raise up to $5 million a year through\n a crowd-funding platform.

\n

MOVUS chief executive and founder Brad Parsons, whose hi-tech industrial data collection and communications device is undergoing a round of capital\n raising to accelerate its growth, applauded the bill and believed it would bring Australia “in line with the rest of the world.”

\n

“It’s absolutely valuable to the sector,” Mr Parsons said. “When you hear positive stories out of the US about their access to equity, being on this\n side of the fence in Australia it has been a different story. Unlocking access to cash is extremely difficult so making crowd funding available\n is only a good thing.”

\n

Previously start-ups could raise funds on sites like Indiegogo and Kickstarter by pre-selling products or offering a benefit when they reached their\n target.

\n

Rules restricted start-up businesses from offering people a stake in the company or shares as a reward, limiting investment to “sophisticated investors”\n with a high net worth and locking ordinary investors out.

\n

But under the new legislation, everyday investors can invest up to $10,000 per year and have a cooling-off period where they will have 48 hours to\n withdraw their investment.

\n

Mr Parson launched MOVUS in January last year as a ‘fit machine’ that uses data to alert users that industrial machinery is showing signs of failure.

  "metaDescription": "",
  "body": "

 

\n

\n

If you've seen the movie \"The Martian\", read on, if not, stop reading, go see it and come back. I wouldn't want to spoil a great movie.

\n

 

\n

Reflecting on my last 12 months building MOVUS I cannot help but notice the parallels between Mark Watney's\n (aka Matt Damon) time on Mars and my own, building a startup. I'd like to share some lessons, in the hope that all those who hit diversity in their\n career or business, can know, that if you \"science the shit out of it!\", every problem can be solved. You just need to solve them one at a time.

\n

 

\n

At the start of the movie, Mark (the ship's Botanist) finds himself stranded on Mars after a horrible storm results in the rest of the crew leaving.\n As an entrepreneur it may seem sometimes that you are stuck on an alien planet and building a rocket ship to success is seemingly impossible.

\n

 

\n

Once Mark realises the enormity of his plight, his first priority is to find a place to live, (the H.A.B.). A year ago, MOVUS successfully applied,\n and were accepted into, the University of Queensland's Accelerator - (the iLab).\n Mark had 31 days of food in the HAB, we had $20K of capital from iLab and a place to call home. Mark used the HAB as a place to experiment and\n learn, so did we, working out customers, product and business models.

\n

 

\n

iLab is an awesome place to start your business but like Mark we figured we needed more resources to survive. The lonely astronaut recognised that\n he needed help, so he travels to the Pathfinder Satellite crash site, to send word back to Earth. We travelled off to Sydney to pitch at Tech23 and EverythingIOT,\n so we could get help. The trips were designed to tell the world who we are and what we do. Mark contacted Earth, NASA came up with the goods. We\n were just as fortunate to win the CSIRO Collaboration Award at Tech23. Larry Marshall (CEO of the CSIRO) presented it, prize money is fabulous\n (more cash for the days ahead).

\n

 

\n

However, it's never all a bed of roses, Mark's comfy home gets blown up and he quickly finds that his food supplies are limited - again. Similar to\n Mark, our team suffered some challenges and it felt like the roses were all thorns.

\n

Mark then starts to plan how he will sustain him for the years to come, he needs to sow seeds in order to survive. In the startup world, it's called\n seed capital, we started chasing this also. Mark searches the HAB for seeds he can germinate into food, to sustain himself, while he hatches a\n plan. The plan works, he can now live on potatoes for a little longer. For us, we learn to live on 2 minute noodles (the student staple), even\n though most of the team left Uni over twenty years ago. :)

\n

 

\n

While Mark's potatoes are blossoming, we managed to turn our investor pitches into seed capital, thanks to ACAC Innovation. His hopes are also raised when he realises that there is a rocket waiting at another launch site (but it's hundreds of kilometres away).\n Our seed capital is enough for us to survive but the journey to our 'launch site' still requires a great deal of work.

\n

 

\n

The seed investment gave us a massive boost, now it's Mark's time to start to plan the journey. Mark jumped in the Rover and started to travel further\n from home, in order to reach the rocket launch site (What we would call product launch). Each journey enabled him to learn new tricks, in order\n to survive, away from the comfort of the HAB. Our journeys, are customer trials of our product suites (the FitMachine and SmartRail). As he learned more, so did we. We know the 'rocket ship of success' is\n on the horizon, figuring out the best route, is the challenge (while not running out of the essentials, like cash).

\n

 

\n

Fortunately our intrepid astronaut makes it to the launch site. The rocket however is too heavy with features, much like our products, therefore we\n both must lighten the load in order to get liftoff.

\n

As Mark heads towards the heavens it is clear that he has been battered and bruised along the way. He has, however, survived, despite the odds, not\n only that, he has managed to solve problems that were deemed to be impossible.

\n

Whether you are building a startup, or building rocket ships, challenges are a constant. It's not about how many challenges you face, it's about how\n many of them you solve.
