Phideas intelligent wearable technologies - smart wearables for connected health

Smart wearable technology since 2002

Back in 2002 we started Phideas with a wearable technology project to protect kids against the risk of abductions. The project involved an intelligent geolocation wearable tracking device with learning capability we called a Smart Portable Device and a server for real-time data analysis and immediate alert dispatch in case of emergency. The Smart Portable Device has evolved into a smartwatch – Phideas Watch – and the whole project into a connected health solution called Phideas e-Health.


In-Device Intelligence

Back in 2002 our initial solution involved a wearable device to be carried by the person whose location and vitals are to be monitored and capable of determining by itself if a life threatening situation is occurring and automatically send an alert so most pertinent contacts are immediately notified and can act quickly. Over the years we have gained considerable expertise in the areas of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and predictive analytics to the point of being capable of making wearables capable of evaluating the likelihood of a condition that may require short to medium term attention. We’ve also assisted companies develop mobile projects where AI plays a key role such as computer vision for facial recognition in biometric authentication.

Indoors/Outdoors Positioning

Indoor/Outdoor positioning is our core expertise at Phideas. As a matter of fact the solution we founded Phideas for is an Advanced & Smart Electronic System called Gabriel™ to protect children against abductions where smart geolocation plays a critical role. That system we filed a patent for in 2004 also involves early warning and machine learning.

Internet of Things

In our solutions we’re always looking at making devices communicate with each other in order to solve a particular problem. As such peer-to-peer communications between electronic monitoring devices either via bluetooth low-energy, WiFi or cellular networks has always played an important part. We’ve done considerable R&D on connected objects always looking into communications security.

  1. Data analysis is an essential part of Big Data. A variety of tools and programming languages allow to analyze data streams and combine different data sources for new insights. Here's an infographic comparing two of those tools. R Vs Python elaborated by the guys from Datacamp.

  2. The Internet of Things connect devices such as everyday consumers objectsand industrial equipment onto the Internet enabling information gathering and management of these devices via software, apps, etc. to increase efficiency, enable new services, or achieve other heath, safety, or environmental benefits. The Internet of Things is used in connected homes, wearables, connected cities, connected cars, industrial Internet. Smartphones have now become the personal gateway to the IoT. Since the IoT by definition generate voluminous amounts of unstructured data, the availability of big data analytics is a key enabler.

  3. Wearable technology is a technology incorporated into things you wear. It could be anything from a smart watch, augmented reality glasses, a personal health monitor in the form of a bracelet, a shirt, etc. Wearable technology is increasingly becoming part of our day-to-day lives and less intrusive - something at Phideas we've been very keen on since our foundation in 2002.

  4. This wearable technology infographic takes a look at the future of wearable technology and how organizations are attempting to address needs that consumers never knew they had. The most well known wearable tech items on the market today are aimed at integrating current technologies and increasing efficiency on the go.

  5. Smart Systems and the Internet Of Things are driven by a combination of sensors and actuators, connectivity, people and processes. GPS location data receivers, eyes and ears using cameras and microphone along with sensory organs that can measure everything from temperature to pressure changes. Networked inputs can be combined into bi-directional systems that integrate data, people, processes and systems for better decision making. The interactions between these entities are creating new types of smart applications and services such as smart parking sensors, activity trackers, smart thermostats, smart outlets, etc. Diverse applications include smart cities e.g. transport and mobility, buildings infrastructure, also health, home consumer and more. Compound applications include smart cities and transportation, smart home and healthcare, etc.
