This Chicago based startup was building a sensor that can monitor head impacts during contact sports like hockey and football. The sensor uses a gyroscope and accelerometer in a small sensor that is located inside the helmet of athletes. Information about the potential impacts is communicated to a base station in an Android or iOS device managed by the coach. This app communicates with an individual player's sensors using BLE and monitors for any potential impacts. If an impact occurs, it would alert the coach and prompt corrective actions. Another set of iOS and Android apps was built for parents and athletes to help them monitor, track and educate about potential concussions and other head injuries.
The Armia Systems team developed both iOS and Android apps to communicate with BLE devices over the air using low energy Bluetooth. A custom protocol is used to communicate with the devices and provide status updates. The apps also communicates with a cloud app to update the websites.
