Tuesday, November 19, 2013

Indian IT bellwether Infosys will partner with Commit, a public-private research community in the Netherlands, for a sensor-based engagement for an improved health project, the company said.

“We will provide technology and investment to Commit’s health project being set up with a consortium of partners to promote a healthier society globally through smart phone application for end users,” the global software major said in a statement here.

Drawing on its domain expertise in sensor networks, complex event processing, security and velocity data management, Infosys will enhance the project for effective use of the smart phone application.

“Our application delivers personalised coaching guidelines on a user’s smart phone on vital statistics, exercise regime, long and short-termmedical history, location, diet habits, and weather conditions,” Infosys Labs vice president Subu Goparaju said.
