Digiotouch's experiment titled ' Secure, Privacy Aware Personal Health and Well-being Companion' (CAPTAIN) has been approved as a part of EU H2020 SHAPES project's 1st open call grant.
Context - The key challenges that exist in current wearable and IoT-based health and well-being monitoring and Active and Health Aging (AHA) solutions include heterogeneity of data collected from a wide array of sensors and devices; lack of advanced cybersecurity; privacy by design; and the interoperability among the associated Platforms and software. The CAPTAIN project responds to the SHAPES-OC1-Enablers-ST4: Smart Connectable for Health and Well being challenge addressing the above-mentioned challenges. The proposal will develop an end-to-end, secure, privacy-by-design, and interoperable web service for users’ health and wellbeing through data aggregation, processing, and analysis. Measuring health and well-being parameters will be performed using Withings ScanWatch, a wearable device that is a medical device grade, CE marked, easy-to-use, comfortable, affordable, and highly automated with up to 30 days of battery life. At the heart of CAPTAIN is a secure software development lifecycle and secure DevOps methodologies ensuring end-user trust in the developed web services.
The developed solution will be piloted with real users in Portugal, Ireland, and Greece.
This project has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No. 857159.
