Voice control of MySignals BLE sensorsMay 8, 2017

E-health is meaning a disruption on health care field. The fact of joining IoT and medical attention is changing the way that people deal with their health. There are several researchers driving projects and developing devices to collect, store, process and communicate health data with the goal of bringing people closer to health data, self-exams, databases and some self-diagnostics.

Today, we show a project which improves how is processed and showed the information collected with our e-Health sensor platform MySignals.

The hardware base is MySignals SW BLE Complete Kit, basically using its BLE sensors, a Raspberry Pi 3 and Google Home, the hands-free Google Assistant voice-activated speaker.

How does it function?

The project has two parts. The first part of the deployment consists in an integration of MySignals Cloud with a local database. For that, the developers have made this integration using Node-RED and REST interfaces to read the data and then push them to a personal MongoDB database.

The second part of the project is an innovative voice control of MySignals BLE sensors. They are paired with a Raspberry Pi via bluetooth and triggered with the Google Voice assistant of a Google Home device. After collecting the data, they are sent to MySignals Cloud. They are read using Node-RED and then visualized in a dashboard at the same time that the speaker says the values loudly.

Vinicius Senger, the CTO and Inventor from Globalcode, is carrying out this e-Health project, showing demos in important events and hackatons around the world like the IoT Tech Day, Amazon Smart City hackathon at The Developers Conference or j-spring.

Follow in Vinicius' footsteps and discover the countless applications and possibilities that brings MySignals e-health sensor platform.
