This pitch has been selected to receive a €30k grant and six months of mentoring to develop its project further.
Embrace seeks to solve the problem of location detection and assisting vulnerable population groups such as the elderly in the event of disappearance or fleeing. The solution is a low-cost, portable and stand-alone positioning device with the capability of sending the position to mobile phones or over the internet. Embrace has originaly funded from Cyprus Ministry of Commerce and has received a European trademark.
Our innovation differentiating EMBRACE from State-of-the-Art solutions is the use of sensor data analytics, onboard the device like elderly behavior analysis, sleep and emotions. Location and movement models can detect patterns in EMBRACE data in an unsupervised manner, to identify behavior and thus show the daily emotional journey for the elderly.
