The fifth edition of Basque Industry 4.0, The Meeting Point 2018, will take place next Monday 26th November at the Palacio Euskalduna in Bilbao. It is organised by the Basque Government’s Department of Economic Development and Infrastructures through the SPRI Group.
Ideable will have its own stand in the exhibition area and will present the new Field Vision system at this event. This system develops and defines new ways of offering value-added services to sectors linked to Industry 4.0, based on new concepts made possible by the technology that supports digital transformation.
At the event we will demonstrate how Field Vision technology, supported by advanced technological developments, can bring new capabilities to companies in Industry 4.0.
Field Vision is based on video calls and augmented reality to provide field technicians and customers with immediate online support from local offices using just a simple mobile phone, tablet or HoloLens glasses. For example, technicians in local facilities offer guidance from their own device to others who are working remotely in any other plant, even in another country; as such, they only need to receive a video call.
It allows incident analysis to be simply and immediately provided for machinery, open air, equipment, etc., detecting any problem quickly and efficiently.
Using these technologies, incidents can be solved and support provided more efficiently and in much less time. This means that the relevant information in our support system goes directly where the most powerful resources are, with huge cost reductions.
The premise is simple: transform data into valuable information that helps with decision making.
The objective of Field Vision: providing service and support to avoid losses in availability at expensive facilities, long start-up times and inconvenient journeys, as well as providing remote supervision of teams or planning/scheduling of maintenance tasks. These technologies are also integrated in ticketing systems, CRM systems or other corporate solutions.
“BASQUE INDUSTRY 4.0. THE MEETING POINT 2018” IS THE BIGGEST MEETING POINT FOR THE 4.0 INDUSTRY IN THE BASQUE COUNTRY.
The event focuses on EICT (electronics, information and communication technology) tools as a means for optimizing industrial processes. Intelligent tools to support design, development, production, logistics and integrated manufacturing management.
After four editions with increasing participation, this event has become the meeting point which annually gathers all the key stakeholders of this new industrial revolution. The Basque Country is in this way establishing itself as a leading region worldwide in exploiting the potential of new technologies in manufacturing processes, Industry 4.0. In addition, the event combines first-rate speeches, the presentation of case studies, workshops, interviews, round tables, exhibitions and a demonstration area.

The international event AAL Forum will be held at the Euskalduna Conference Centre in Bilbao from 24th to 26th September and Ideable, currently a European benchmark in the application of technology for care of the elderly and in the design of health telemonitoring systems, just couldn’t miss it this year.
The AAL Forum, which coincides with the Silver Week that Bizkaia will dedicate to the Silver Economy sector, aims to expand the AAL community of change makers and develop more efficient systems which will allow us all – local stakeholders (municipalities, provinces, regions, health and social care providers, etc.), SMEs and the industrial sector responsible for planning tomorrow’s digital technology today – to build the services for an ageing society together.
As part of this event, Ideable will have its own stand where we will present our Kwido elderly care platform, as well as various innovations in this field that we are currently developing in the areas of cognitive stimulation, indoor and out-of-home monitoring for the elderly, virtual reality, etc.
In line with the AAL Forum’s objective of creating an interactive and inspiring event based on creativity and a commitment to the AAL community, our newly developed virtual reality games for cognitive stimulation will be available to those attending the event who come to our stand.
Ideable will also participate in a variety of activities:
- It will present zocaalo, the new international marketplace for apps available for the elderly, both at our stand and at a side event. The zocaloo workshop will take place on Wednesday, September 26 at 11:00 am in Room C Level 3 of the Euskalduna Palace.
- Furthermore, Iñaki Bartolomé, CEO of Ideable Solutions, will participate in Workshop 10 – Growing the AAL market: ensuring effective deployment of real life solutions on Tuesday 26th at 16:00 pm. The workshop will analyse how to contribute to the market success of AAL and Silver Economy solutions.
- In the poster section, Iñaki Bartolomé will also present the first advances of the IOANNA project on Tuesday, September 25 at 9:40 am, focused on offering geolocation products and services to the elderly from mobile phones.
- In addition, prior to the AAL Forum, our CEO will also give a presentation about zocaalo to hackathon Hack4Elder advantAGE participants on Sunday at 11:00 am.
Ideable and AAL
AAL is a European programme to promote research into the use of technology to improve the quality of life of the elderly.
One of Ideable’s most distinctive characteristics is innovation, as it has already demonstrated in several of its projects. Examples of this are the creation of the elderly care line (Kwido), which is now a benchmark in Europe, and the digital cognitive stimulation platform (Kwido Mementia).
Ideable is very active in the Silver Economy sector and in the AAL programme, taking part at present in four different AAL projects with partners all around Europe.
And Ideable was also chosen to design the event’s website, so we couldn’t be more involved or happy for it to be a success.

Iñaki Bartolomé, Kwido CEO, to take part in the UPV/EHU Summer Courses with the presentation entitled “Kwido: platform for monitoring health, cognitive stimulation and social skills. A success story”. on Friday 22 June at 10:10.
Iñaki Bartolomé will highlight the different areas that Kwido has specialised in, both in communication (tele-consultation) and in terms of monitoring health, with a very special mention being given to the Kwido Mementia cognitive stimulation platform, where he will discuss the praxia and gnosia engines and the results obtained from the studies carried out with Kwido Mementia.
He will also discuss the new projects that Kwido is working on, such as using virtual and augmented reality, monitoring the elderly at home and its participation in different R&D projects in Europe, where Ideable and Kwido are already leaders in the Silver Economy.
For Ideable it is an honour to be part of this major prestigious national event, which is celebrating its 37th edition in 2018. These UPV/EHU Summer Courses provide a forum to debate and think critically about a society which is constantly changing.
Objectives of the Summer Course on Research and Innovation into frailty and ageing:
- Examining the impact that an ageing population has on society.
- Looking at the frailty syndrome from different fields and focal points.
- Stimulating debate between the different players in our field.
- Presenting the different evaluation and prevention strategies being developed at regional, national and European levels.
- Showing the most recent results from research and innovation in the field of ageing at regional, national and European levels.
The objective of the course that we are going to take part in is to focus on the frailty syndrome, a situation that combines various factors that are very common in the elderly and in which the functional reserve and ability to adapt are reduced.
A common precursor to loss of autonomy and, therefore, the dependency threshold, frailty, unlike dependency, is reversible. Early identification of those suffering from it, as well as accurate evaluation, will therefore prevent or slow down dependency. This will improve the quality of life for these people and help to control the social, family and health costs associated with dependency.
During the workshops, the latest advances in research and innovation will be presented in different fields such as Biology, Medicine, Primary Care, and Technology, and with Kwido cited as a success story.
The Summer Course is organised by the consortium comprised of the Biodonostia Institute, Tecnalia, the University of the Basque Country/ Eukal Herriko Unibertsitatea (UPV/EHU), Vicomtech, Cidetec, IK4-Tekniker and the Matia Institute.
You can find the Course programme here.
