Sweden's Innovation Agency has granted Acconeer 4 million SEK for research on sleep monitoring using radar. The project will run for three years starting in April 2021 and will be a consortium with Sleepiz based in Switzerland and the University of Gothenburg, Sweden.
The aim of the project is to deliver a revolutionary contactless device for diagnosis and monitoring, where Acconeer's next generation pulsed coherent radar sensor will be used to monitor cardio-respiratory patterns. Sleepiz already has a sleep monitoring device on the market and their expertise in the field combined with Acconeer's radar research will result in a new product that will be validated by University of Gothenburg's Sleep Medicine Centre.
"We are delighted to work with Acconeer to co-develop a customized radar chip for improved functionality and features, as well as to do prototype validation with University of Gothenburg's Sleep Medicine Centre" says Soumya Dash, CEO at Sleepiz.
The funding from Sweden's Innovation Agency for this project is granted within the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation program.
