InviSense is the first company to be approved for test bed vouchers. They deliver and develop sensors that can measure moisture and humidity in buildings, such as inside the sealant, and behind different types of building panels and undercoats. The system will alarm if any leaks or damage occur and make it possible to work preventively and to do partial repairs instead of unnecessary tearing.
InviSense’s primary goal for the testbed application is to get the chance to verify new technologies in a real environment. They’ve partnered with RISE and Asygn for the prototypes and Stångåstaden is the prospective customer with identified needs. The installations are completely non-destructive, which means that if the test would fail, nothing will be damaged. The technology is micrometer thin. In addition, partial reparations will only release one percent of Co2 emissions compared to renovating a whole bathroom. No functional parts will be removed, which leads to reduced costs and decreased logistical issues.
InviSense believes that this opportunity is a great way to support local businesses. It works as an enabling platform for SMEs to perform and try their solutions as well as create an understanding of used technologies.
“We are a local startup and we believe it’s important to participate in different projects that take place in the region. We want to show our newly developed system and demonstrate the benefits,” says Björn Garplind, InviSense.
On the question of how Invisense’s solution will contribute to making Linköping a climate-friendly city, Björn says:
“Stop demolishing and focus on partial reparations instead. Reduce the Co2 emissions and save time and money.”
Sluta Riv is a trade organization that digs deeper into the problem of demolishing buildings and how to focus on reparation instead.
