Thursday 22 February, we had quite an interesting KIVI lecture from our speaker Michiel Gunsing, who is the CEO of the start up company GMBS which he started together with his CTO Joris Brouwer in 2021. The content was about how GMBS can reduce container loss, by providing hardware and software to be used on the bridge of a ship, such that a captain can be warned about potential loss of containers. Also we got a nice insight into their entrepreneurship, like the type of challenges that they had to be overcome so far. Also a real demonstration of the hardware and software during the lecture inspired the audience seen the number of questions after the lecture finished. We are looking forward to see more of this technology in the future such that the number of containers can be largely reduced.
