IDA Technology Roadmap 2012
This technology falls in the following categories of Singapore's IDA Infocomm Technology Roadmap 2012:
A system to establish a communication channel between two or multiple parties for the purpose of acquiring and distributing data using existing mobile telephony infrastructure and/or the Internet. The system includes methods protocols and tools for acquiring data from Bluetooth or USB transducers (e.g., pressure, electrical signals such as EEG and ECG, optical signals such as oximetry and ophthalmoscopic images, ultrasound signals, reaction time monitors, etc.), analyzing the data, identifying triggers and establishing a simultaneous data and voice connection to another mobile or fixed device. This technology is thus suitable for a multitude of mobile eHealth applications as well as any application that may require ongoing feedback to perform an operation.
Technology Readiness Level 4 on the scale by the Ministry of Defence Singapore.
