Spindox Labs: innovation, R&D, and the future

Spindox Labs is our hub for high innovation and is only a stone’s throw from the University of Trento. This is the place dedicated to technological scouting and prototyping. Here, we develop the most innovative solutions for our customers, providing them with full implementation support. We do design on national and European calls, developing research in partnership with university start-ups and spin-offs.

The research developed by Spindox Labs as a system integrator ranges from computer vision to 3D modeling, from the Internet of Things to natural language processing, and from augmented reality to data science. We offer a wide range of expertise, always abreast with emerging trends in the world of ICT.


From computer vision to IoT and from 3D modeling to natural language processing

The fields of application in which Spindox Labs exerts its innovative strength require a constant in-depth study of technologies to provide the best performing solutions for our customers.

  • In the field of computer vision, we use deep learning techniques—applying people tracking and object detection algorithms—to identify, track, and classify people and objects in real time within images and videos.
  • In the field of 3D modeling, we exploit the principles of photogrammetry to obtain multiple images of the same object or the same environment, enabling the automatic inspection or identification of anomalies. This approach also helps determine the valuable functions within large areas or sensitive infrastructures.
  • We use IoT devices for indoor and outdoor localization of objects and people and for real-time monitoring of their positioning to develop cutting-edge solutions in the field of logistics and security systems.
  • Through research on natural language processing, we create chatbots designed to perform complex tasks. Conversational agents, interconnected with virtual assistants and message platforms, provide support, assistance, and recommendations within specific domains of expertise.
  • We develop augmented reality techniques to enable customers to view goods and provide staff with the ability to operate remotely on machinery and equipment and explore environments (closed or open) when conducting virtual assistance services.

We use data science to implement tools for monitoring, predictive maintenance, and identification of anomalies related to production processes and telecommunication networks with the ability to extract key indicators in real time for performance analysis and optimization.

Technology for the future

Spindox research supports big brands through challenges that arise during the digital transformation. Spindox Labs’ technological capabilities involve multiple fields of applications, placing itself at the service of the business objectives of companies and groups operating in the various areas of the digital economy.

Designing the new retail store experience

We enable new customer experiences in retail outlets (proximity marketing, self check-out), while increasing the effectiveness of the shelf replenishment processes. The SPINRETAIL platform facilitates meeting the needs of the retailer and customer, optimizing store remote management. Thanks to Heatmaps, you can analyze customer movement for better product allocation. Object detection techniques monitor the pick of the product, activating feedback for customers in the form of personalized offers and simultaneously ensuring strict compliance with anti-Covid restrictions on social distancing.

Mapping the territory with 3D models

We build territorial 3D models by classifying objects starting from the ground, then passing through the buildings and vegetation to produce an integrated map. The goal is to digitize and automate the maintenance processes of the power line throughout the country, reducing costs for on-site inspections, monitoring infrastructures through laser scanning techniques, and reporting any possible disturbance anomalies in time. The use of neural networks and reliable classification methodologies for the identification of the aforementioned elements makes it possible to extract information that can be immediately processed, thus ensuring, thanks to artificial intelligence, a streamlining of monitoring and intervention operations on networks and infrastructure.

Designing the connected car

Starting from the enormous amounts of data accumulated through telemetry, we work successfully to improve the performance of a car and the performance of those who drive it. The use of data science optimizes the performance of race cars by creating predictive maintenance tools and anomaly detection devices. The best car setup relies on an artificial intelligence model to process the data acquired via telemetry according to weather and track conditions. The images on the road, taken by a camera equipped with an IoT system, are transmitted through real-time streaming techniques. The coordinated use of these technologies opens the future to scenarios of autonomous driving and connected cars, capable of perceiving the surrounding reality as well as interacting with other vehicles and entities, ensuring maximum performance and safety.
