Simple Wearables

Simple Wearables has created the Simple Wave platform – an end-to-end safety and mobility platform that consists of wearable devices, a back-end communication system and a network of care providers that all get connected seamlessly in cases of emergencies.

Going beyond emergency alerts, it measures steps and profiles daily activities, providing a better picture of an user’s mobility – enabling it to become the only predictive fall detector in the market.

The Simple Wave provides peace of mind when you need it the most. In case of a fall where the user becomes unconscious, it will automatically call for help through its built-in fall detector and cellular phone. In cases where the user needs emergency assistance, a simple gesture will trigger a call. The Simple Wave platform learns and updates itself to become the best companion for users living independently.

Quanergy Systems, Inc. is the leading provider of LiDAR (light detection and ranging) smart sensing solutions for real-time perception including object detection, classification and tracking, as well as for 3D mapping and location.

Quanergy’s solid state 3D sensors, unveiled at CES 2016, will disrupt current offerings and fuel the growth of 3D sensing and LiDAR in existing and many new application areas. These breakthrough products are dramatically smaller than other sensors on the market, with no moving parts, and feature the durability required for industrial applications, at a price point that will make them ubiquitous in many industries.
