How does our environment create and contribute to health threats? This is a question doctors are looking to answer. Nano Global, a company focused on accelerating cures to address global health challenges, has introduced the Nano Bot device to monitor and convey environmental data critical to human health and disease control.
The first generation Nano Bot, featuring an Arm based microcontroller and array of environmental sensors, will be deployed initially at healthcare and research facilities operated by some of Nano’s strategic partners. This marks an important milestone in Nano’s ability to monitor sensitive environments for health threats by collecting ambient environmental information to better understand, predict, and rectify threats such as antimicrobial resistance (AMR) and superbugs. Data acquired through Nano Bots provides an important data stream to the company’s broader data-driven artificial intelligence (AI) platform called Nano Sense.
The company’s Nano Sense system-on-chip (SoC) , currently under development in partnership with Arm, will power future Nano Bot and partner devices to enable data acquisition and AI at the edge, accelerating detection, prevention, and treatment of health threats.
