Shimmer is a wireless sensor platform that allows you to capture and communicate a wide range of sensed data in real-time.
Shimmer is the main component (often referred to as the main-board) required to set up a wireless sensing application, and provides a range of functions including basic motion sensing, data capture, processing, and the wireless transmission of sensed data.
A full range of sensor modules (or daughter-cards) can then be connected to Shimmer, to allow for applications in complex motion sensing, vital signs and biophysical sensing, environmental and ambient sensing.
The Shimmer wearable sensor platform easily integrates and interacts with existing sensor and systems technologies This facilitates wearable wireless sensing in a diverse range of products and services from remote monitoring systems, physiological monitoring devices, motion analysis applications, to sports science and rehabilitation programmes.
