  1. 1. ABC Collaborations -Collaborating Locally and Selling Internationally from Ireland Shimmer Research
  2. 2. The Shimmer Platform <ul><li>Shimmer is a wireless sensor platform that allows the user to record and transmit a wide range of physiological and sensor data. </li></ul><ul><li>Shimmer enables interaction with your environment by providing a wireless sensing solution that is small, lightweight, and has low power consumption, which can easily integrate and interact with existing technologies. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Shimmer platform overview
  4. 4. Shimmer Sensing Capabilities Kinematic Physiological Ambient Accelerometer ECG PIR/Motion Gyroscope EMG Temperature Tilt / vibration GSR Light Magnetometer UV GPS GPS
