2.14 AVAILABLE TECHNOLOGIES

A look at available technologies that could benefit the project

#1 XETHRU The Norwegian company Novelda developed a radar technology that can detect different people in a room, and even every persons respiration rate. It is the size of a fire alarm and is positioned on the wall of a room. If this technology was smaller and only measure one persons respiration rate this would be exactly what I need. This was the technology I chose, but I will tell you a bit more of the other tech that I found.

#2 MICRO LED-PROJECTOR This is an incredibly small projector, about the size of a finger nail. It can project an image on a surface even if the direction of the projector is almost parallel to the surface. This

could prove useful to display results to the paramedics.

#3 GOOGLES PROJECT SOLI Also a radar that can detect minute movements of your finger tips and in this way control devices by moving your finger in the air. This gave an idea that radar technology can be smaller, but perhaps did not fit perfectly with the project.

#4 GRAPHENE OXIDE A thin strip that can detect changes in air moisture and through that determine respiration. However it would need to be directly in front of the mouth, so that made it less useful for my project.
