Although we do not have a project, we have solutions that we have developed by investing. Signaling systems, smart transportation systems and health systems, some of them. We produced a local respirator that everyone is very proud of in the pandemic. We are also developing the MR device, x-ray device and we will start mass production as soon as the certification phase of the x-ray device is completed. We take responsibility for serial solutions that will reduce our country's external dependency and contribute to our economy. So far, we have developed a total of 60 projects at 132 universities.
