Science City

Our Chief Executive, visited the Science City in Newcastle last week to introduce the Whzan service to a number of Technology Managers at the Science City. The Technology Managers facilitate the introduction of new assisting technologies to companies accommodated at the Science City facility.

Keith presented a number of potential applications for Whzan. In particular, he showed how Whzan could be used to create an internet based system for remote management of energy in homes, gated communities and social housing schemes. Many housing associations are now very interested in managing energy more efficiently and becoming more green. Green energy is becoming more and more interesting for many, both in their own homes and in their work places. Building management is gaining new importance in the management of the overall energy bill.

Keith's audience was also very interested in carbon reduction resulting from the use of electric fleet vehicles as this could be further enhanced by utilising Whzan to optimise the drive logistics considering range, speed, distance to next charge point etc. This is something that the Whzan technical team could investigate in conjunction with one of the companies at the Science City.

The applications for Whzan in the health sector were also discussed. Whzan can be used to collect data from many telecare solutions. Remote health care is being introduced in a number of areas to enable patients to remain in their homes and yet be monitored daily. Whzan can interface with a number of medical devices used for remote monitoring of health indicators, such as blood pressure, weight, blood glucose levels, pulse, lung function, blood oxygen and many other parameters.

We are looking forward to working together with the Newcastle Science City and the companies they support!
