The company was founded in 2016 by Pavel Konečný through StartupYard accelerator. The same year, the project combining IoT and AI won idea of the year.
Just a year later, the company received an EUR 600K investment from the J&T fund, appeared in Forbes Next and received orders from Airbus BizLab in Hamburg.
In 2018, the company was recognized by Gartner as a “Cool Vendor” in the field of Acoustic Technologies for Predictive Maintenance.
In 2019, Inven Capital (CEZ Group) and Lead Ventures (MOL Group) invested EUR 5.75 million in the company. In the same year, the company was named best AI Startup in the Czech Republic and the best IoT Startup in Central Europe.
In 2020 and 2021, the machine learning team ranked among the top 10 in the world in acoustic detection using AI.
We understand machines. We use artificial intelligence enhanced by industrial and diagnostic knowledge to detect potential failures early.
The power of AI allows us to monitor even machines that standard methods cannot handle, meaning Neuron soundware can monitor a wider range of machines more efficiently than any other solution.
The power of our AI goes beyond standard monitoring methods and areas.

Really positive results
“Like all machinery in the transport system, escalators can break down, which can lead to delays in a critical part of the transport infrastructure. We want to embrace digitalization in monitoring our equipment, which is why we chose a solution where sensors collect acoustic data and process it using AI. This allows us to monitor the equipment remotely and send a specialist out if our Neuron Soundware equipment warns us of a change in the condition of the escalator parts”
