Partnering opportunity

Technology platform using powerful micro-scale biometric wearable hardware.

Summary

A Dutch SME is offering a technology platform using powerful and very compact micro-scale biometric wearable hardware. Processing power of the platform is quite extensive allowing vast on-board data processing. Using Cloud-based data connectivity, numerous (web)applications can be designed by continuous deployment. Commercial agreement with technical assistance, manufacturing agreement, research cooperation agreement or technical cooperation agreement are envisioned.

Partner sought

The company is looking for partners that need one or more of the described sensor-, wearable or Internet of Things technologies in their research programs, product development programs or (as part of) a final product. Partners are expected to be able to integrate the platform technologies into their application or (final) product.

Description

The Dutch SME builds wire-free data solutions, wearables and applications. With their lean, rapid development approach they realise signal- and data capturing solutions that suit best to the needs of the customer. The products and technologies can be tailored to branded user applications anywhere from ‘thing-to-cloud’. Their mission is to provide wearable sensing technology and white-label products to previously untapped sports, leisure, work and (health)care segments. The internet-of-things triggers the need and creation of ‘new things’ that can generate a leap in the quality of life and living environment. The SME’s mission is therefore also to bring to market affordable wirefree sensor and interaction systems for air quality, energy use and (indoor) location based services. Application areas: • Sports biometrics, health and virtual reality/augmented reality: wearable motion, tension (force), position, heart rate, temperature and audio feedback solutions • Living & environment: interactive LED, local positioning, outdoor air quality sensoring • Industry & transport: electronic work assistants, identification, location, motion, force A leading product development of the company is a so called "buddy”. This is a technology platform based on a very compact all-in-one biometric wearable. It is primarily designed as a biometric hearable (smart hearing aid) so very compact, however the internal electronics can also be fitted in other wearables. In its full functionality it can sense full 9D motion and posture, a full range of cardio-metrics as well as body temperature. It has both Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity and it can store 4Gb of data. It is fitted with an 80mAh rechargeable battery and is fitted with dual speaker and microphone as well as an audio codec. The company is looking for partners that need one or more of the described sensor-, wearable or Internet of Things technologies in their research programs, product development programs or (as part of) a final product. The company expects partners who are able to integrate the platform technologies into their application or (final) product. The Dutch SME can support in realizing this integration. Dependent on the business case and subsequent market upside, they can either support such integrations at commercial rates, with consortium subsidy or free-of-charge. Cooperation with partners would be in the frame of either a commercial agreement with technical assistance, manufacturing agreement, research cooperation agreement or a technical cooperation agreement.

Advantages and innovations

This is a technology platform based on a very compact all-in-one biometric wearable. Because of its modular setup, most of the hardware platform can also be used in other wearability locations, such as wrist, foot, chest as well as animals. It can sense full 9D motion and posture, a full range of cardio-metrics as well as body temperature. It has both Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity and it can store 4Gb of data. It is fitted with an 80mAh rechargeable battery and is fitted with dual speaker and microphone as well as an audio codec. It is currently running in test programs for various sports- and care applications.

How it works

  • Tell us about yourself
  • We’ll discuss with you
  • We put the right partners in touch

EEN help you find the right partner, rather than you going it alone.

Our role is to review and collate the most suitable submissions, and then send them to the client who posted the opportunity. We consult with you, and the client, to make the process professional and easy.

These are live opportunities. Your registration of interest on the site is just like a professional approach to a business at a networking event. To stand the best chance of success, make your submission really sing. Sell why the client who posted the opportunity should work with you. Excite them. Ask questions. Try and avoid copy and pasting words from elsewhere.

Once the client has chosen their partner, we'll introduce them over email and keep in touch with both parties to see how it's going. Sometimes things progress quickly. Sometimes because of changing priorities for either party, things progress slowly, but you never know - your next big business break could start right here.
