Research Areas

Understanding the importance of continuous progress, Arctur has its own R&D department, registered with the Slovenian Research Agency (ARRS). Arctur is involved in joint R&D projects with research institutes, universities and other R&D organizations from EU and globally.

Main topics of our R&D activities of course pertain to advanced HPC and Cloud computing and underlying XaaS paradigm; our work represents horizontal layer for a wide variety of vertical scientific and technological fields. We were pioneers in adapting HPC services to the needs of small and media enterprises (SME) and are still among trend setters in this specific area.

Major R&D areas include:
• High Performance Computing
• Big Data analysis
• Cloud solutions and services
• Artificial Intelligence
• Machine Learning
• Blockchain
• Tourism 4.0

Tourism 4.0

Buliding Tourism for the Future with Tourism 4.0 Partnership

European tourism sector is mainly built of small and medium players. However, it is large technology players that take a large proportion of the cake – whether it be profit or data – which leaves tourism providers and local governments in subordinate position with regard to technological innovation, digital business models and tourist privacy. Arctur aims to bring change through the Tourism 4.0 (T4.0) initiative by giving SMEs access to technologies such as High Performance Computing (HPC) to empower them and  their innovation capacities. Therefore, the Tourism 4.0 Partnership was established to accelerate the data driven tourism in collaboration with all stakeholders of the smart tourism ecosystem. It strives to unlock the innovation potential in the tourism sector by using state-of-the-art technology to tackle the challenges of overtourism, boost positive tourism impact and to achieve more personalised tourist experience.

Furthermore, we perceive the tourism ecosystem in a novel way by centring it around the local community even though the tourist providers, tourists and the government are clearly important stakeholders. This way sustainability of tourism activities can be attained bottom up by fostering more intense collaboration among all stakeholders in the tourism ecosystem, who are and always will be co-creating the tourist experience. For this reason, the base for the tools of the T4.0 platform that we are developing within the largest state-funded research project on tourism in Slovenia is the Tourism Impact Model. Following the local community centred approach, the model is dedicated to municipalities and cities to help them understand their limits in terms of the destinations’ carrying capacity, level of collaboration as well as to strategically act in order to create destinations that people want to visit and also live in.

In addition, other disruptive tools are being developed to support so called strategic thinking 4.0 focused on enhancing sustainable tourism that are enabling predictions, management of tourist flows, awarding behaviour with positive impact and creating anonymised personalised experiences too. Within Tourism 4.0, a special attention is also given to the field of cultural heritage programme where we see several opportunities for sustainable and enriched tourist experiences. For this, advanced technologies (360° photo and video, Augmented Reality, 3D scanning, modelling and printing, simulated reconstruction …), hybrid skills of digital business model development, and strategic planning of digital transformation are used. The programme has received a Silver prize for innovations by the Slovenian Chamber of Commerce and Industry.

eGOZD – Elektronsko poslovanje kmetijskih gospodarstev z izrazito gozdarsko dejavnostjo

Projekt stremi k uvajanju elektronskega poslovanja na izbranih kmetijskih gospodarstvih v slovenskem prostoru. V Sloveniji delujejo vsi členi gozdno-lesne verige, vendar je učinkovitost povezav ter optimalnost delovanja nujno izboljšati. Neizkoriščene priložnosti vidimo predvsem v povezovanju znotraj posameznih členov in predvsem med členi verige. Projekt bo ponudil nove in poenostavljene možnosti načrtovanja, spremljanja in izvedbe del ter tako prispeval k učinkovitejšem gospodarjenju z gozdovi v lasti kmetijskih gospodarstev.

Glavni namen projekta je dvig stopnje digitalizacije na področju učinkovitega in ekonomsko vzdržnega gospodarjenja z gozdovi in tako neposredno vplivati na dvig produktivnosti in dodane vrednosti v celotni gozdno-lesni proizvodni verigi.

Glavni cilj projekta je digitalizacija in razbremenitev birokratskih bremen kmetijskih gospodarstev z namenom optimizacije gozdno-lesnih verig ter intenziviranja gospodarjenja z zasebnimi gozdovi. 

Arctur v procesu digitalizacije poslovnih procesov gozdno-lesne verige sodeluje kot tehnološki partner.

"Projekt je financiran v sklopu ukrepa M16 Sodelovanje, podukrep 16.2 Podpora za pilotne projekte ter za razvoj novih proizvodov, praks, procesov in tehnologij na področju gozdarstva."


TIM DDF4CE - Tourism Impact Model Dynamic Data Fusion 4 Circular Economy

TIM DDF4CE je nova in inovativna storitev na področju preprečevanja in nadzorovanja onesnaženja zraka kot dela prehoda na krožno gospodarstvo. Rešitev združuje natančno merjenje trdih delcev v zraku – ogljičnih aerosolov in njihovih komponent, z različnimi drugimi viri podatkov po kazalnikih turizma v dinamično fuzijo podatkov, ki ponuja uporabnikom (odločevalcem v turističnih destinacijah) ključne informacije o onesnaženosti zraka. Te namreč temeljijo na osnovi realnih, natančnih in visokofrekvenčnih podatkov ob pomoči analitičnih metod strojnega učenja in umetne inteligence.

Rešitev temelji na (a) merjenju ogljičnih aerosolov z nadgrajenim sistemom Carbonaceous Aerosol Speciation System (CASS), ki bo omogočil meritev koncentracije in komponent, kar je ključno za identificiranje, koliko posamezni ogljični aerosoli škodljivo vplivajo na zdravje ljudi in okolje, (b) dinamični fuziji podatkov in grafičnem prikazu na Arcturjevi platformi T4.0 Core, ki ponuja visokozmogljivo analizo in vizualizacijo različnih tipov podatkov v času ter določanje korelacij med njimi, nadgrajenih z umetno inteligenco in možnostjo simulacij. TIM DDF4CE storitev omogoča strateško načrtovanje razvoja turizma na temelju realnih podatkov in tako bistveno prispeva k zmanjšanju škodljivih vplivov onesnaženja zraka na zdravje ljudi, kulturno dediščino, ekosistem in na podnebje.
