Multiple industries and military applications are looking for full spectrum environmental, health and safety wearable solutions for their personnel to reduce workplace/field injuries and fatalities. No matter what industry or challenge, GE Research has the breadth and depth of expertise and experience across the disciplines required to provide the right solutions.
Industrial and Military Wearable development requires a cross functional team that originates from the GE’s innovation DNA. For more than 10-years, we have developed advanced materials, sensors and processes for GE products in the most demanding of industries like aerospace, energy, mining, homeland security, and health care, where the bar for safety and performance is highest.
Today, our broad wearables research implements synergistic innovations from such diverse technical disciplines as wireless communications, electronics, RF engineering, materials science, analytical instrumentation, embedded software, machine learning, and packaging. Our IP portfolio includes 70+ patents to provide safety, compliance, and fit-for-purpose solutions.
At GE Research, we consider conditions from mining, manufacturing and utilities, military and homeland security, to sports and recreation. We sense proximity, voltage and toxic gases, as well as monitor physiological indicators of personnel, keeping data secure via blockchain.
Proximity Sensing & Geo-Fencing: Sensing a persons location to improve safety and collision avoidance, even in GPS-denied environments
Voltage Sensing: Proximity monitoring of low to high voltages using wrist sensors
Physiological Monitoring: Predictive fatigue and stress monitoring, including but not limited to: heart rate, ECG, EEG, and hydration
Gas Sensing: Multivariable sensing to quantify toxic, explosive, and other gases
On/Off Premise Cloud & Analytics Platform: Scalable, secure and open architecture system platform for real-time data analytics, tailored to customer needs, secured by block chain technology and hosted both on or off-premise
