1. Revolutionary Research: The Hydrogen Solution That’s Completely Green
Israeli startup QD-SOL is working on revolutionizing the production of green hydrogen, a pivotal component in the renewable energy sector. QD-SOL aims to address the environmental concerns associated with traditional hydrogen production methods.
QD-SOL’s innovative solution integrates the entire process into a solar panel. The technology utilizes nanoparticles to catalyze the separation of hydrogen from water molecules, directly harnessing sunlight without emitting carbon dioxide. This unique approach eliminates the need for external energy sources and associated infrastructure, making it both environmentally friendly and cost-effective.
The company’s breakthrough is attributed to the years of research by Prof. Lilac Amirav from the Technion – Israel Institute of Technology, now the chief scientific officer of QD-SOL. The company’s innovative solution has garnered attention in the market, showcasing its potential to significantly contribute to the reduction of environmentally harmful hydrogen production.

3. Optimization Platform: Trucknet Digital Platform for Freight Logistic Management
Trucknet is a logistics and transportation company that has developed an intelligent transport optimization platform to improve fleet management for companies.
Founder and President Hanan Fridman explains that there are about 46 billion miles of empty truck rides every year on the roads in the world, which highlights the significant inefficiencies in the traditional freight management system. Trucknet’s platform aims to address this issue by reducing empty truck rides and improving the efficiency of logistics operations.
Fridman anticipates that the world of logistics will become autonomous in the future, and Trucknet is well-positioned to lead the way in this new era, as well as having a significant contribution to sustainability.

4. AI Advancements: AI Turns Wi-Fi Routers Into ‘Cameras’ to See People Through Walls
Recent advancements in computer vision and machine learning have significantly improved 2D and 3D human pose estimation using various sensors like RGB cameras, LiDAR, and radars.
However, challenges like occlusion and lighting affect pose estimation from images, while radar and LiDAR require expensive, power-intensive hardware with privacy concerns.
To overcome these limitations, researchers have explored using Wi-Fi antennas (1D sensors) for body segmentation and key-point detection, leveraging deep learning to estimate dense human pose correspondence.
The developed deep neural network maps Wi-Fi signal phase and amplitude to UV coordinates within 24 human regions, demonstrating that the DensePose model can achieve accurate pose estimation comparable to image-based methods. This innovative approach opens avenues for low-cost, widely accessible, and privacy-preserving algorithms for human sensing.
