Turkey, the Netherlands and the private sector in projects involving universities and companies from Belgium, HAVELSAN has developed indoor positioning algorithm and its application in the field has successfully tested.
The algorithms developed by HAVELSAN for the eWatch Project within the scope of the software innovation sub-program ITEA of EUREKA, the International R&D Support Program, successfully passed the tests by providing the targeted data.
With the algorithm developed by HAVELSAN, the sensitivity of remote monitoring of patients has been reduced to less than 1 meter.
The algorithm, developed using Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) technologies, was chosen as the most innovative aspect of the project, which started in 2016 and includes many companies and institutions from 3 countries.
With the developed algorithm, data such as breathing, sleep patterns, heart signals of patients using the eSaat application are monitored, and thanks to its location determined with a precision of less than 1 meter, the patient can be reached quickly when problems occur.
It is stated that the most innovative aspect of the project is that for the first time in the world, apart from an academic study, the application is reduced to less than 1 meter in practice.
The project, which will provide easy access not only to patients but also to doctors, was developed with two separate algorithms in order to prevent the reflection of incoming signals. The patent application of the project has also been made.
