Impact Research
Home Projects Solutions Impact Research Opportunities About us

Our Research is focussed to fulfil the needs of the three billion people emerging. They are in need of education, health and innovation.

Impact Research on Education

We believe that research creating impact for the "emerging three billion has to be based on a combined view of people, things and services. We see lots of technology research leading into new devices/things or services, often overloading what people are able to use. Following the Basic Internet mandate of low-bandwidth information provision, we believe that you don't need video and broadband networks to provide education. Wikipedia and apps on phones and tablets can work with a minimum bandwidth, providing more than 300 people with information instead of one person with a video.

Thus, we focus on (low-bandwidth) applications

Impact Research on Health

Cyber-physical systems, sensors will contribute to increased health and care taking, even in areas without professionals. The core idea is to provide the information about a person to over the low-bandwidth link of Basic Internet, and get personalised information back to the user.


The International Diabetes Federation (IDF) has indicated that 366 million people have diabetes in 2011; by 2030 this will have risen to 552 million [1]. They further indicate that 183 million people (50%) with diabetes are undiagnosed. According to the Transparency Market Research, the market for Diabetes devices and drug market having a value of USD 54.04 billion in 2012 and is estimated to reach a market worth of USD 83.0 billion in 2019 growing at a CAGR of 5.9% from 2013 to 2019 [2]

Projects like Diabetes during Pregnancy have demonstrated that personalised information on blood sugar, food and motion contributes to a substantial health increase. The information can be provided over low-bandwith apps in response to the blood sugar measures.

Blood pressure, Dementia and more health applications

There is a range of other health applications which can be supported through low-bandwidth communications. What we see clearly is how sensors contribute to the paradigm shift for health professionals, moving towards (i) better diagnosis through sensor-aided health information and (ii) faster support including remote monitoring. Studies performed have indicated that sensor-aided health will also have a substantial impact on the patients, providing them with autonomy, self-confidence and a better life, especially for patients having chronic sicknesses.

If you have examples, please inform us.
