Blood Pressure Tracking made Simple

February 12, 2020 in Cultivate, IoT

About a Year ago ACM discovered a very simple way to report and track your blood pressure to your doctor. Yep, there’s an app for that, which we developed over the last few months. The Blood Pressure Diary mobile app complies with the recommendations of the World Healthcare Organization as well. It also supports Medical Deluxe Connected Blood Pressure Monitor UA-651BLE by A&D company. It provides an option to automatically obtain data from tonometer using a Bluetooth connection.

As we constantly refine the way the app delivers. This application features two vital functions. The first one is the accumulation of information on blood pressure measurement results. You can then email the results to your doctor or the application could help you to set up an optimum regimen of your medicine for the treatment of the heart and vessels.

Another important function is MONITORING. A disease such as hypertension is dangerous because it’s unnoticeable. For a long time, it disguises under usual weakness, lack of sleep, or fatigue until it reaches the cardiovascular center – your heart. When the disease is strong enough it will strike your heart, kidney or your brain. This disease is very tricky, but now you have a weapon to fight it – your personal blood pressure monitor.

Main features:

1) Accumulation of blood pressure measurement results
2) Monitoring of pressure to notify when it is necessary to consult the doctor
3) Sending data to your email
4) HealthKit Integration

Advantages:

1) Easy data input
2) Simple and user-friendly interface
3) Illustrative diagrams complying with recommendations of the World Healthcare Organization

Dreaming of the Day When Driverless Vehicles Will Become a Reality

January 17, 2018 in Cultivate, IoT, tools

Till now, there have been many claims that driverless cars are coming shortly. People, who love innovation and automation, are overjoyed and waiting with bated breath to read the headline

‘A certain company has launched the first-ever driverless car’

Well, it might not be impossible, but indeed, there has been some haste in the expected timeline.

Automation is not an easy process—never easier when it comes to taking full control of the roads, which are often crowded; have different real-time conditions, and are subjective to new stimuli and variables all the time. However, there have been certain advancements is automating certain processes of a vehicle, including:

  1. Parking help
  2. Lane changing
  3. Deaccelerating if coming too close to a vehicle
  4. Automation of wiper function when it rains
  5. And few more similar functions

Yet, there is much to achieve when it comes to steering and also taking total control away from a human driver. The conditions are always dynamic and going beyond the capacity of a human brain, which often fails while driving and makes mistakes causing accidents, is not an easy task—it could take years even before innovators reach a partial automation level, leave aside the question of full automation.

Further, these automation levels will increase the cost of vehicles and would be limited to top-class editions only because not everyone likes to pay more than he/she could afford.

Another problem is the driving habit or culture of a particular city or country. A big auto market like India will face troubles because the driving habits of users are not as refined as they are in some of the countries, and therefore, the conflict between automated cars and human-driven cars would be problematic.

What we can expect in near future is some specific roads or pathways, just like metros or special trains, where driverless cars could be experimented to run and operate. This could be limited to a particular colony, a community.

Taking driverless cars to common roads is something not possible in the near future—it will take many years of innovation, adaptation, refinement, and infrastructure building to make it a reality.

Smart Clothing—Are You Game?

December 27, 2017 in Cultivate, IoT

IoT (Internet of Things) is changing lives for better and more and more items used are being enabled to be smart—clothing can never be out of the ambit because it is one of the most used things in the world. Smart clothing has been known to help in providing heat, light and also sensing capabilities. Well, the future is here, and we are staring right at it! Many companies are already trying their hands in developing the smart clothing technology and devices that could gather the required data for the process of applications.

To know better about how smart clothing can help us, let’s get more information on the known user-cases of smart clothing:

  1. Locating missing people

With the help of smart clothing, a person’s movement and whereabouts could be located, which could help in locating if they go missing. This is particularly helpful for children and the elderly. Further, this application of smart clothing can be applied to some of the pets too.

  1. Alarming the emergency services in case of fatal accidents

Because the smart clothing can have sensing capabilities, in the case of a fatal accident, it can sense the impact trauma and alarm the nearest emergency services to rush quickly to the location of the accident and provide needed help. This could potentially save lives.

  1. Safety on the road

Particularly helpful to constructions workers, the smart clothing can provide light in the evening or in the night just to make sure the workers can be spotted and the vehicles could avoid hitting them.

The Future is on

The applications and capabilities, as the industry keeps developing, of the smart clothing would keep on increasing and more inclusive bring a change in the way clothing is seen as a must-have or an accessory. The future for smart clothing is on and it seems bright!
