A little about ourselves
We are a focused and dynamic company developing advanced technologies, products and services that harness the power of Artificial Intelligence, Deep Learning and Computer Vision.
We believe that using our technical expertise we can make the difference and improve the way people work and live.
Our mission is to develop technologies to ensure better lives for present and future generations.
Our first product, Horus, is a wearable device developed to assist blind and partially sighted people in their daily life. Horus observes, understands and describes the environment to the person using it, providing useful information with the right timing and in a discreet way using bone conduction. Horus is able to read texts, to recognize faces, objects and much more.
Horus is composed by a wearable headset with cameras and by a pocket unit that contains a powerful processor and a long lasting battery. The user can activate each functionality through a set of buttons located both on the headset and the pocket unit. The buttons are very easy to find thanks to their different shapes.
During 2015, Horus Technology grew by 400% thanks to a number of prestigious awards such as the Idea Challenge by EIT Digital, Unicredit Startlab, IBM Smartcamp and the successful crowdfunding campaign on the TIM WCAP Accelerator platform. Additionally, it took part in the TIM WCAP 2014 acceleration program.
