Very simply, what does your tech start-up do?

  • ImpactVision helps food companies make real time decisions about their product quality.
  • Our technology scans 100% of products on conveyor belts at production grade speeds, distinguishing properties such as freshness, ripeness or pH, and detecting foreign objects in real-time, to optimise processing for a higher quality, more consistent end product, as well as reducing supply chain waste.
  • We do this by combining hyperspectral imaging with machine learning to access information far beyond what human eyes can see.
