Frost & Sullivan's Product Leadership Award Honours Shimmer For Its Highly Flexible Wireless Sensor Platform

LONDON, Aug. 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Based on its recent analysis of the wireless sensors market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes Shimmer with the 2013 European Frost & Sullivan Product Leadership Award for its highly flexible wireless sensor platform, 'Shimmer'. This platform enables real-time data capture and communication and acts as a primary board into which various sensor cards can be incorporated. Thereby, it facilitates comprehensive wireless sensing applications that efficiently address biophysical, motion, and environmental-sensing needs.

The Shimmer wireless platform is open-source and highly configurable. As it does not require any proprietary software, it can be easily incorporated in prevailing technologies. Consequently, it caters to the development needs of research-oriented applications as well as the wireless-sensing needs of original equipment manufacturers (OEMs).

"Shimmer's flexible and customizable platform allows for the rapid development of a solution that can be tailored at every step of the process without lengthy and costly hardware and application development," said Frost & Sullivan Industry Analyst Aravind Seshagiri. "This, coupled with the company's in-depth industry experience of delivering wearable sensing solutions, is a significant value addition."

Shimmer is an 'end-to-end' wearable technologies service and wireless sensor platform manufacturer. Shimmer's products effectively address key challenges related to size, wearability and dependability in terms of communication and low power consumption. Simultaneously, it ensures that its products are highly configurable and flexible, which allows them to be rapidly tailored to the requirements of each individual-use case and application.

From the manner in which data is captured, transmitted, and stored to the way in which it is interpreted and displayed, Shimmer's customizability spans a comprehensive range of customer-specific needs.

Shimmer uses the latest components in its bid to offer up-to-date features and deliver best-in-class performance. This is evident in the company's decision to incorporate a processor that is four times faster in the next upgrade of its Shimmer platform. This upgraded processor will guarantee that Shimmer offers capabilities that are unmatched by any commercially available platform designed for body-worn sensing.
