We are Peerox

Despite ever-increasing automation in production plants, experienced employees are indispensable for an efficient production process. With their unique cognitive, motor and visual skills, humans are far superior to many technical solutions. However, due to demographic change and high employee turnover, many operators lack the necessary experiential knowledge.

We digitize experience knowledge and make it usable for everyone with our self-learning assistance system for machine operators MADDOX

Jobsite

Industrial Advisory Group

In our development, we are accompanied by an industrial group of consultants, made up of currently 38 companies. These companies are available to us for discussions on the business model, but essentially also for trial tests. This extraordinary support helps us to closely align the development of MADDOX with the needs of our customers and users. Among others, they include:

In addition, the members of the advisory board are closely involved in the current research and development work of the Fraunhofer IVV Dresden. If you are interested in joining the advisory board, please send us a short message.

Supporters and Partners

A very important part of our corporate philosophy is to always cooperate with the best. Instead of developing everything ourselves and in secret, we are constantly looking for meaningful partnerships. We are convinced that many (critical) views and competencies provide the development speed and product optimization needed to realize our vision.

Advisory Board

We have the great fortune to be supported by an advisory board of experienced entrepreneurs and scientists from all relevant industries. With its help, strategic decisions are considered from different angles and conflict situations are resolved. Having access to such a wealth of experience is a great asset for Peerox. In addition, the quarterly advisory board meetings are a good opportunity to take a regular break from the dynamic day-to-day business and review the company’s own strategy for the future.

Cooperation

User Experience & User Interface Design

We have had a close and professional working relationship with Tyclipso.net since 2018. Our development began only with an idea and a small budget. Nevertheless, the colleagues from Tyclipso were captivated by our vision, and put incredible ambition and commitment into the project. With a lot of patience and creative ideas, the first software mockups emerged from the colorful images in the founders’ heads. This allowed our system to be clearly presented to potential users and decision-makers, which led to the first pilot projects with innovative industry partners. In the meantime, professional software has been developed in cooperation with Tyclipso. While we are currently finalizing MADDOX V2.0 together, we continue to enjoy and look forward to a long-lasting partnership built on mutual trust.

Public Relations

For us, Peerox is more than just a software company. Rather, it is an ambitious venture to make our dream of a fulfilling job in a great team and the vision of a digitalized working world with people at the center come true. This requires exceptional employees, customers and partners. People who share a common philosophy and believe in making a difference. At markenteam Werbeagentur GmbH, we’ve found just such creative minds, who work with us to communicate this vision clearly to the outside world and inspire the right people to follow our path.

Food for Thought toward Creative Solutions

Qilmo supports us in finding solutions in different areas with clever methods around Design Thinking. For example, together we have developed an interactive workshop to analyze the production-relevant information flows of our (potential) customers. This enables us to understand the customer-specific boundary conditions in much greater detail as early as the acquisition stage, and to create independent added value through comprehensive processing; even if MADDOX does not prove to be a suitable solution in every case.

Start-Up Helpers and Companions

In the beginning, our first rough ideas for MADDOX often didn’t trigger anything but skepticism. With dresden|exists it was different. Sebastian Löbelt-Friedrich listened to us and recognized the vision behind our barely structured and partly incompletely thought out content. In the elaboration of our EXIST research transfer application, he mercilessly put his finger into the open wounds again and again with great personal commitment and various night shifts, and showed us the weak points in our plans. Painful weak points, which we as idea-loving founders would have gladly ignored or overlooked. Without this intensive, honest support, we would probably never have received start-up funding. Today, we continue to enjoy working with the dresden|exists team, and regularly attend its start-up events.

Research & Development

In addition to the basic software, numerous additional functionalities are planned along an R&D roadmap in close cooperation with the Fraunhofer IVV Dresden, and are already in the developmental stages.

In the area of operator assistance systems, work is currently being carried out on the following topics, among others:

Research & Development

In the area of operator assistance systems, work is currently being carried out on the following topics, among others:

Optional external optical and acoustic sensors can be used to record conditions (especially at critical points) in even greater detail. Research is being conducted into the (re)detection of movement anomalies of the products or working elements of the machine. Further information on the project: OpticSAM

Using mobile devices is a challenge, especially with protective equipment and in noisy environments. For this reason, research and development is looking at innovative input options using speech and gesture.

In order to be able to work with free hands while using the software, technologies such as augmented reality are very promising. However, the hardware is currently hardly suitable for everyday production use. The creation of digital content is also currently still time-consuming and cost-intensive. Solutions to these problems are being researched in the c/oSAM project, among others.

Digitized content enables the use of automated translation tools (e.g., DeepL), thereby significantly lowering language barriers.

Research is being conducted into the description of states by human dialog behavior using the case-based reasoning (CBR) method, among other methods. The project Cooperative Human-Machine Dialog (KoMMDia) is a BMBF-funded cooperation project

Networking to higher-level planning and control systems (MES/ BDE) enables greater integration of production administration and use of knowledge from production.

Experiential knowledge is also required for efficient and safe operation in setup and maintenance processes. For this reason, the IVV Dresden is researching the use of technologies in this area as well.

For more information please visit: c/oSAM

Experts from a wide range of specialist areas (domains), such as sales staff, design engineers, work scientists, computer scientists or designers, all participate in the development of a complex system. In the iterative development process, they all generate content which in turn is required as a basis for other developers and must be passed on to them.

The Smart Workbench addresses this problem. A new method is being developed that reverses the paradigm of separately distinct information platforms and development workflows as well as information flows realized via interfaces that are familiar from the state of the art.
