My name is Jacob, and I would love to introduce a chest strap named Aidlab, that we’ve released a couple of months ago. Hope you don’t mind if I will share some words with you about the project .
Aidlab was created to fill the gap between simple fitness trackers and advanced medical devices. We wanted to make a very personal tracker (Aidlab learns the user’s behavior to give meaningful feedback), and to create something open to tinkerers (we’ve created a well-documented SDK with examples for data geeks).
Here are some strengths that we and our community see in Aidlab:
- It learns. We’ve used some neat machine learning and basic heuristic to create a truly personal assistant. For example, Aidlab will suggest a short walk, only if he will understand you, and your daily routine.
- It’s open for developers. On local geek meetings and Hackerspaces people are creating really neat things. Some guy created a Flappy Birds clone, where the bird was controlled by the signal from lungs (http://www.aidlab.com/market/breathing-sky).
- It’s open for researchers. Aidlab is widely used as a learning platform (https://www.aidlab.com/research) - for those who want to learn basics of data science, IoT and mobile development.
- Aidlab is built on the top of the high accuracy sensors. For almost 2 years, we have been testing best on the market biosensors to provide reliable readings.
- Aidlab supports custom, internal add-ons to optimize the vital tracking process. For example, you can decide if you want to focus on sleep or fitness or health tracking only. This could give you a higher readings accuracy, as normally we are limited by Bluetooth 4.0 bandwidth.
What Aidlab tracks:
- Skin temperature.
- Noise pollution.
- Steps, pulse, HRV, bodyweight reps, activity, calories, sleeping behavior, and more…
Here, I am looking for an opportunity to spread the word about Aidlab, honest feedback, and some love .
