imec Chill Band


The Chill Band is a wearable band able to sense multiple parameters from the user’s wrist. Galvanic skin response (GSR) with high dynamic range and accuracy, and the skin temperature and movement are all sensed at configurable rates from the user’s wrist. The Chill Band has an unmatched low-power performance providing autonomies beyond one week of continuous monitoring. All raw data collected by the wristband are accessible via USB. The Chill Band is a demonstrator that can be used for data collection in research and clinical environments. It is one of multiple examples of imec technology.

Empatica E4


The E4 wristband is a wearable wireless device designed for continuous, real-time data acquisition in daily life. It measures Blood Volume Pulse (BVP), from which heart rate, heart rate variability (HRV), and other cardiovascular features may be derived. A 3-axis accelerometer captures motion-based activity. The Electrodermal Activity Sensor (GSR) can measure the sympathetic nervous system arousal and derive features related to stress, engagement, and excitement. The Infrared Thermopile reads peripheral skin temperature.

Microsoft Kinect 2


The Kinect sensor, a physical device with depth sensing technology, built-in color camera, infrared (IR) emitter, and microphone array, can sense the location and movements of people as well as their voices. Create and deploy interactive desktop or Windows Store apps.

Microsoft Azure


Microsoft Azure is a growing collection of integrated cloud services—analytics, computing, database, mobile, networking, storage, and web—for moving faster, achieving more, and saving money.

Wio Node


The Wio Node is a small footprint open source Wi-FI arduino compatible development board which has two Grove connectors on-board which can be used as Digital I/O, Analog UART or I2C interfaces to communicate with GROVE modules. The board also hosts a LiPo connector allowing it to run on a small battery source making it ideal for prototyping wearable IoT devices for the sports hackathon.

Grove - IMU 10DOF v2.0


The Grove – IMU 10DOF V2.0 is based on MPU-9250 and BMP280.MPU-9250 is still the most compatible 9-axis motion tracking device which combines a 3-axis gyroscope, 3-axis accelerometer, 3-axis magnetometer and a Digital Motion Processor (DMP) in a 3*3*1mm package. Regarding BMP280, the main change from Grove IMU 10DOF V1.0, this time it is housed in an extremely compact package that is 65% smaller than BMP180. Not just the size, the power consumption is even lower to be as low as 2.74uA@1Hz.

Grove - Ear-clip Heart Rate Sensor


Heart rate ear clip kit contain a ear clip and a receiver module. The heart rate measure kit can be used to monitor heart rate of patient and athlete. The result can be displayed on a screen via the serial port and can be saved for analysis. The entire system has a high sensitivity, low power consumption and is very portable.

AllThingsTalk Cloud


The AllThingsTalk Cloud is an IoT Application Enablement platform for prototyping and full scale product deployment. Connect your devices with web services, let them interact using when-then rules, and store as well as visualise data using mobile or web dashboards. The AllThingsTalk Cloud is production ready, built to scale and can be white labelled for your own brand or products. SmartLiving, the AllThingsTalk Cloud Instance for Prototyping is free to use for developers and innovators. You can discover the accessible functionality of the AllThingsTalk Cloud and experiment to learn how to put the Internet of Things to use in your line of business.
