The runner-up sector by comparison, which secured five innovation awards, is the manufacturing area featuring smart technology and smartlock series that are representative of the Fourth Industrial Revolution. Three innovation awards were won, which is the highest number of awards in the K-Startup Joint Pavilion. Also, Huenit and Curing Innos were recognized for their excellence in their fusion of robotic skills and functions centered on improving the quality of human life.
In the field of mobility, Evar and Mars Auto under the themes of "electric vehicles" and "autonomous driving," which represent the mobility market trends for both the present and the future, won awards. They were well-received in proposing the possibility of solving the remaining challenges in the industry by realizing fast charging for electric vehicles and autonomous driving for heavy vehicles. AU also received an award by demonstrating their sensor technology to effectively prevent safety incidents that can occur to anyone with mobility problems.
At the same time, AirDeep was acclaimed for introducing AI and Internet of Things (IoT) technology to help improve air quality, which is the hottest topic regarding the global environment. Another award went to inDJ, which has implemented the ultra-personalization of playlists by handling a much larger amount of user preference data than traditional AI-based music recommendation platforms.
