Samsung buys 3 patents from Russian life monitoring sensor developers

18 Mar '16
Korea’s Samsung has bought from an unspecified team of Russian developers three patents for a new advanced laser sensor system to gauge and monitor critical physiological indicators in the human body, Russian portal Hi-tech.mail.ru reported.

The innovative sensors are expected to give an examiner a clearer picture of a person’s current physical status than the existing competition. They will be used to measure heartbeat, blood pressure and the speed of blood flow.

In addition, the new sensors are said to be able to analyze the status of one’s skin. All these indicators are expected to enable an objective assessment of the user’s body on a real-time basis, and generate plan of action type recommendations.

According to a patent application, the laser sensors can be built in two types of devices, including the smartphone and a gadget like fitness bracelet or “smart” watch.

The new solution will pick indicators based on image analysis. Specifically, the system will take a photo of the skin by directing a feeble laser beam onto it; the photo will then be processed in a manner that is the developers’ know-how, and results will be compared to images taken previously.
