Together with the VU (Vrije Universiteit) we developed the first prototype of a Health Alarm. This application will help us to understand the possibilities of mobile sensing using smart phones. The sensors from large numbers of users can in theory be combined to gather valuable data and information about people, environments, and cities, but doing this efficiently and in a privacy-preserving way is a major challenge. Currently we can test and exploit more and more novel sensors to give real-time feedback and advice to users.
Health innovations and Apps are still booming and promising. An very interesting example is HappiTech, a Health application to monitor heartfailure. But health Apps are used for a variety of things; to tracks activity, sleep or to guide people towards a better life style. Today we marked the kick-off of a new digital innovation project that will go into different direction and will use IT and sensors in a complete different way. The final product will be shown at the end of 2017.
