Measuring motorcycle helmet use is critical for countries to target enforcement and measure the impact of new laws for road safety for motorcyclists. Current methods to measure helmet use are time-consuming and costly and involve roadside observation and review of hospital records. This novel method, using street imagery and crowdsourcing internet marketplaces, has the ability to revolutionize how this life-saving intervention is measured by dramatically reducing time and cost.

With the introduction of 5G, global attention on electromagnetic field (EMF) safety has greatly increased. As such, the “IoT-based, unmanned remote EMF measuring equipment” has been developed steadily to measure EMF 24/7/365 while extending EMF measurement to the entire living environment. An “EMF monitoring system” has also been deployed to manage EMF in real time. In so doing, the system has contributed to the building of an EMF-free country while relieving public anxiety over EMF.
The last field survey done in the UAE was in 2005 and since then the Ministry has been relying heavily on statistical data from the 2005 survey, thus creating the need to have a new agricultural survey done with high accuracy, speed, and low cost. A drone-enabled aerial mapping system was used to generate high-resolution highly efficient aerial data over 1100 square kilometre within 12 months, at a cost of less than five times the cost of a field survey, and obtaining 52 parameters statistical data.
Ukraine has a large amount of state owned assets which are in most cases mismanaged or sold via corrupt procedures, meaning a large portion of funds never reaches local and state budgets.

The Innovation Barometer is the world’s first official statistics on Public Sector Innovation (PSI), now implemented in 5 countries, providing innovators and decision makers with systematic knowledge of what thousands of innovators 'actually do’. The barometer advances PSI as a tool for solving societal problems and is used in practice for: inspiring innovation work, policymaking, strategising, executive leadership development, teaching, research and consultancy services.
The Brazilian federal voluntary transfers process handled more than R$100 billion between 2008 and 2018 by means of over 140,000 instruments among the entities of the Federation. However, the number of transfers made required an analysis effort much higher than the available analysis capacity of the transferring agencies. Thus, the problem of continued growth of presented accounts pending analysis emerged. The project "Malha Fina de Convenios" is a tool to solve this bottleneck.
