Incubating cleantech venture to accelerate time to market

2009

Realizing that solar electricity would be widely adopted if it were cost-competitive with fossil fuel-derived electricity, the entrepreneurs behind SolFocus had developed a promising CPV approach -- in their garage -- and were working to advance their technology.

Creating a new media business opportunity and technology platform

2009

While global publishing company DNP had a long history of delivering information on paper and other materials, it wanted to capitalize on the emerging trend of delivering information in digital formats.

Pioneering and deploying a breakthrough consumer product

The founders of startup Powerset, Inc., were convinced that there had to be a better way for consumers to search the web.

Meeting a high-value, custom application need through low-cost, novel electronics

PARC scientists delivered the key components for a tape-like blast dosimeter with integrated memory, control electronics, and multiple sensors – which could be fabricated through printing techniques or be compatible with roll-to-roll processing (key for enabling the novel form factors and low cost), and be customized to specific application needs.

Going beyond usability and incremental innovation to target new markets

The projector industry has matured. Despite the increased number of competitors and need for differentiation, innovations have focused only on incremental improvements or component technologies.

Transforming employee learning and customer service practices

To better serve customers, reduce training costs, and increase revenue, a Fortune 500 company wanted to consolidate its fragmented call-center operations to provide a single face to customers.

Entering an emerging product market through IP and new technology capability transfer

Dowa had significant materials expertise and in-house R&D, but lacked the knowledge to manufacture and develop an emerging product category of LED-based products.

Harnessing communal expertise sharing to enhance services

If Xerox could leverage service technicians' tacit and socially shared experiences into a codified expert system, it would help improve services, revenues, and customer satisfaction.

Enabling value-added offerings for new market

While BASF has significant chemistry expertise, it needed to integrate electronics into its materials to capture value-added opportunities with customers in the display market.

Designing a more engaging visitor experience

Based on observations of how Filoli visitors naturally engaged with audio guidebooks, PARC ethnographers realized that visitors wanted to listen to descriptive information together and share “listening spaces” with each other.

Collaborating to complement expertise and reduce each other's risk

Power Assure wanted to develop its data center software‐as‐a‐service (SaaS) virtualization offerings to enable both greater energy savings and greater quality‐of‐service for customers.

 

CCN protocol: Relieve telecommunications backhaul congestion

PARC has developed a communications protocol complementing existing IP infrastructure to dramatically reduce backhaul congestion on telecommunications networks.

Using conversational insights to guide new products

Motorola wanted to investigate sharing practices among family and friends, so it could develop personalized communications applications that helped people maintain and enhance their social bonds.

PARC EE-Scope

By combining power usage and public data, PARC EE-Scope increases the effectiveness of EE programs via a set of tools to improve the design, targeting, and monitoring of residential EE offerings.

Right now, utility bills may indicate if a home uses more energy than its peers. EE-Scope goes beyond identifying “who” and asks “why” these homes are consuming so much more (or less) for air conditioning, heating, or other appliances. Combining PARC’s physics-based analytics and increasingly sophisticated power data, EE-Scope can help a utility assess the potential reasons for energy consumption and more accurately assess what home or behavioral modifications will have the most impact for each consumer.

CoEx for Structured Battery Electrodes

20 February 2014

PARC offers a proven co-extrusion priting technique, CoEx, that can enhance both the energy and power densities of batteries.  A cost-effective way to manufacture structured electrodes, this technique can be applied to both cathodes and anodes for most mature batter chemistries.

Printed Integral Batteries

19 February 2014

PARC offers a novel co-extrusion printing technique that enables the printing of a full-thickness battery cathode, anode, and separator in a signle pass to dramatically improve battery performance and reduce production costs.

Very High Specific Power III-IV Solar Cells in a Rugged, Flexible, Low-Cost "Solar Blanket"

19 February 2014

PARC, together with Triton Systems and PV Scientific, is developing a flexible solar blanket based on micro-optic solar concentrators and high efficiency III-V solar cells.  This combination offers the best possible tradeoff among cost, weight, flexibility and efficiency.

Threat-Adaptive Installation Energy Management

19 February 2014

The Camera Doesn’t Lie: Rapid Observation to Create Better Customer Experiences

17 December 2013

In this white paper, learn:

  • How “rapid ethnography” can be effectively compressed into a relatively short period without losing impact
  • When rapid assessments are best used based on focus of inquiry, activity of interest, and findings meant to directly impact design
  • How LA Express Park utilized PARC’s REACT+ and, as a result, discovered new technology innovation opportunities and how to drive better dynamic parking CX
