Our vision

We are leveraging the co-emergence of ubiquitous cellular communication networks and small, inexpensive embedded electronics to transform the availability of real-time environmental data in the developing world

 

Our hardware

brain_icon The Pulse pod collects data from a variety of sensors, and propagates the data onto the internet using a GSM transceiver, in a beer-can sized package.

The modular design of the electronics include separate boards for the brain, the GSM radio, the power management circuit, and the daughter board connections.

Sensors are held securely to the outside of the pod using sliding bosses that can be configured to the user’s specifications.
