Visionary M2M Application that Detects Potentially Dangerous Head Impact Honored by Sensors Magazine
Columbia, MD – June 6, 2013 – Eurotech, a leading supplier of embedded technologies, products and systems, and SENSUSS, an innovator of sensor technologies, announced today that the SENSUSS S3 sensor was presented with the Silver 2013 Best of Sensors Expo Application Award. Sensors Magazine presented the awards at the Sensors Expo & Conference on June 5, 2013 in Rosemont, IL. For the first time, the 2013 awards focused on sensor applications and excellence among engineers, which traditionally focused on sensor technology innovations.
“We were thrilled to focus this year’s awards on applications and innovations in the world of sensors, and to recognize excellence among engineers,” said Melanie Martella, Executive Editor, Sensors Magazine. “The nominations demonstrated exceptional innovation in engineering, applications, and sensor technology, and we applaud all of the winners.”
SENSUSS is developing a portfolio of products that provide immediate information about impact levels that an athlete has sustained during participation. This product, the “S3”, is a device that monitors impacts and captures that data; it then uses M2M to transmit and store that information, and through cloud based applications provides real time assessments that protect the athlete from further potential harm.
John Grazioli, SENSUSS President said, “Sensor technology is advancing rapidly and we are honored our application was recognized with a Best of Sensors Expo Award. The future of this industry lies in sensor advancements and a substantial infrastructure created in the cloud to do amazing things with sensor data.”
“The SENSUSS application continues to attract industry attention since it is truly a useful, innovative use of sensors in a healthcare M2M application,” said Greg Nicoloso, Eurotech CEO for North America. “By connecting their helmet sensors to the Everyware Cloud, coaches, doctors and parents can find out about potentially harmful hits immediately and even compare the data to previous hits or specific medical issues the athlete may have. We look forward to supporting this innovative application as it begins to proliferate in the market.”
