Smart childhood Obesity CARing solution using IoT potential
Ocariot is a project co-funded by the European Union`s HORIZON 2020 Programme and the Brazilian Ministry of Science, Technology
Relevance for Cloudscape Brazil 2018:
The event is dedicated to “Trusted Technologies for strong and competitive economies” and to demonstrate how new technology trends and novelties are stimulating innovation in different business sectors. OCARIoT (Smart childhood Obesity CARing solution using IoT potential), a Horizon 2020 project, has the objective of providing an IoT-based personalized coaching solution (mHealth), guiding children to adopt healthy eating and physical activity behavior.
OCARIoT will allow us to observe child activity patterns of daily living, health evolution, physiological & behavioral parameters and environmental data. All this information combined with medical patterns will allow us to provide a customized obesity coaching plan. Since the project can use personal health data, this implies very strong requirements regarding security and privacy of data, thus its objective is strictly related to event.
