WASP-N is a standalone bridge that allows Bluetooth Smart® (formally Bluetooth Low Energy or BLE) and ANT+ devices to communicate wirelessly through Wi-Fi networks to other devices or over the Internet. For example BLE/ANT+ heart rate monitors, home scales, pulse-oximeter monitors, and blood glucose monitors are all able to use this bridge module to communicate their data to central monitoring stations via the WiFi network. View product brief.
WASP-POE bridges allow for Bluetooth Smart and ANT/ANT+ sensor devices to communicate messages directly onto a wired Ethernet network and forwards the data to end points on the local Ethernet network. This bridge is powered directly from the Ethernet connection through a POE-enabled router or through an optional POE-injector. View product brief.
WASP-N is ideal for using in different situations where mobility and wireless access are important. WASP-POE is ideal for use in a wired Ethernet facility. The real value of these products is the ability to simultaneously manage sensor data from different protocols (ANT/ANT+/ANT-FS/BLE). Both products can be situated in a designated monitoring area to provide complete coverage of BLE and various ANT protocol sensor data coming from groups of people or groups of devices. Portions of data initially captured by one node will continue to be captured through other nodes as the individual moves throughout the monitoring area thus creating a smart, real-time monitoring solution. WASP-N operates in WiFi infrastructure networks or as a limited Access Point (AP), where it creates its own network.
Real-time sensor information captured by WASP can be communicated to numerous end points, either directly onto a wired network using WASP-POE or to any WiFi enable device with WASP-N, such as a smart phone pad, or watch. Group information can be displayed onto a big board for the class, while individual information can be viewed by each participant via their phone.
The Scosche RHYTHM+ heart rate sensor is a workout tool for managing heart rate, calories burned, distance, and pace.
This lightweight Garmin foot pod transmits distance and pace data. It's small enough to attach to shoelaces or fit in the mid-sole pocket of compatible shoes.
An ANT+ Stride-based Speed and Distance Monitor is personal body-worn device such as a foot pod or pedometer that allows the user to measure the number of strides taken, speed traveled and/or distance covered based on stride measurements and calculations. The data is instantly transferred in real-time to a personal display device like a watch, cell phone or fitness equipment computer for convenient and live monitoring.
An ANT+ Light Electric Vehicle is comprised of a battery powered electric motor that uses sensor inputs from the action of pedaling to vary the amount of assistance added to the motor. The rider can control the assistance or resistance through a display unit on the bike. The display shows the battery life and estimates the distance before the battery runs out.
A portable ANT+ racquet sensor is attached to a racquet (manufactured by any brand) allowing an athlete to measure and record a variety of real-time racquet sport parameters. Sport specific data such as ball speed, number of shots, shot selection and swing accuracy can be detected by the racquet sensor, stored and transmitted in real-time to a watch, smartphone, tablet or other type of personal display. The display device can also receive and store data entered by the user such as set count, match count and current score.
An ANT+ Heart Rate Sensor is a body-worn device that allows the user to measure heart rate in real-time. Most heart rate monitors are worn around the chest and transmit heart rate data to a display device such as a watch, cell phone, fitness equipment or activity monitor.
An ANT+ Blood Pressure Monitor measures a user’s blood pressure, stores recorded data, and forwards the information to another device. It also has the ability to handle multiple users and their associated user profiles meaning it can remember their personal data. The collection device - which could be a cell phone, PDA or computer with internet access - will store, display and possibly track the data received from the blood pressure device. When the information is transmitted to a collection device, it can then be sent over the internet to a database for storage. For example, the blood pressure measurements can be stored in an application like an online health database or at a health professional’s office.
An ANT+ Environment Sensor is a device that measures environmental parameters such as current temperature and 24 hour highs and lows. The data can be transmitted to a device such as a cell phone or watch for real-time display or stored for later download and analysis.
ANT+ Fitness Equipment allows a user who is wearing an ANT+ device like a watch to link their device to any ANT+ enabled piece of fitness equipment such as a treadmill or stationary bike. The profile information from the user is automatically imported to the fitness machine. The machine recognizes the user profile and executes a specific workout based on the information transferred. The resultant workout data is automatically sent back to the device (watch) for archiving/analysis.
FE-C: or ‘fitness equipment – controls’ enables real- time wireless control of fitness equipment resistance settings. An example would be an audio/visual simulation or a game displayed to a user which controls the intensity of the workout the user is executing. The speed of the simulation display is also typically adjusted in real-time to match the speed at which the user cycles, rows, runs etc.
FIT: ANT+ Fitness Equipment allows a user who is wearing an ANT+ device like a watch to link their device to any ANT+ enabled piece of fitness equipment such as a treadmill or stationary bike. The profile information from the user is automatically imported to the fitness machine. The machine recognizes the user profile and executes a specific workout based on the information transferred. The resultant workout data is automatically sent back to the device (watch) for archiving/analysis.
ANT+ bike lights broadcast wireless information to a bike computer or similar controller, typically mounted on the bike handlebars. This information includes the manufacturer and product ID, battery level, and state of the bike light; for example on or off, and flashing speed. An ANT+ bike light controller may display this information to the cyclist. For example the controller may beep to warn the user of low battery levels at the start of a journey, and indicate to the user which light requires a replacement battery. The ANT+ controller may also control the state of the ANT+ bike lights, either automatically or based on user input. For example the ANT+ bike light controller may automatically switch all the lights on at the start of a journey and off at the end.
An ANT+ Continuous Glucose Monitor (or CGM system) is a personal monitoring device that uses wireless technology to collect glucose readings from a small sensor inserted under the skin. The sensor measures glucose levels in interstitial tissue fluid, which provide an indication of blood glucose levels.
The system can display readings every one to five minutes in real-time, and can be set to sound alarms if glucose levels go out of range, allowing immediate user intervention. With the use of computer software, CGM data can be displayed in charts and graphs so that trends can be identified and blood glucose level control can be improved.
An ANT+ Activity Monitor is a body worn device that allows the user to measure their activity information. Data such as calories, steps, distance, activity level and/or the duration of measurements may be transmitted to a collector device for real-time display, or stored on the monitor for later download to a computer or other collecting device.
An ANT+Bike Speed Sensor is a device mounted on a bicycle that calculates the speed the bicycle is traveling. This is typically done through a magnet on the wheel spokes and a sensor on the bicycle frame that detects the magnet passing.
An ANT+ Bike Cadence Sensor measures the speed at which the user is pedaling, typically using a magnet attached to the pedal shaft and a sensor mounted on the frame.
An ANT+ Speed and Cadence combined sensor measures both of the above.
The data for bike speed and/or bike cadence is instantly transmitted to a bike computer or other device like a watch, cell phone or PDA for viewing. The data can be stored on the display and uploaded to the internet at a later time.
An ANT+ capable muscle oxygen monitor provides a real time indication of the percentage of muscle oxygen in a particular muscle, which is transmitted wirelessly to a display such as a sports watch, mobile phone or tablet, and/or a PC.
