Wearables for Connected Workers
Wearables for Connected Workers
Intel
Together, Honeywell and Intel have developed a IoT proof of concept (PoC) for the Connected Worker. The Connected Worker can take many forms - factory laborer, mine worker, first responder, firefighters and more. For each environment and worker role, a different selection of sensors may be appropriate to provide the most meaningful IoT-fueled dataset to represent that individual worker asset. As with most IoT solutions, it is critical to avoid being overwhelmed by a steady stream of meaningless data. Rather, it is essential to send select actionable intelligence to the cloud for visualization and customized alert notifications. The downside is that data from individual wearable devices - if viewed independently - can potentially cause false alarms and contribute to inefficiencies in a manpower as a result. Fusing sensor technology with big data processing (hub/gateway), analytics - all in the cloud - is the key to improving local intelligence as well as remote visualization of actionable intelligence.

Precision Wearable Biometrics Provider, Valencell, Selects Arxan to Protect Intellectual Property
Arxan Technologies
Years of research and development were invested by the company into their biometric sensor technology. They wanted to ensure that their unique, patented intellectual property (IP) was not compromised or cloned through application attacks, such as reverse-engineering or code tampering. This was particularly important given the increased competitive pressures in the wearables market and the customer’s distribution model of working in partnership with consumer product manufacturers and potentially third party developers. Although patented and protected under NDA, the company’s code and IP could potentially be exposed during the sharing of their technology (in the form of an SDK/library) during integration as partners work to turn their wearable products into biometric wearables. The customer also required ease of use and flexibility such that their proprietary technology could first be easily protected and then be leveraged within another 3rd party application. As such, the solution needed to meet stringent resource consumption requirements of diverse mobile / IoT platforms.
