WakeCap serves as the first optimum and smart safety solution for outside workers to prevent heat-related illnesses. WakeCap technology is utilizing the identical safety helmet which the workers are mandated to wear, and combines WakeCap’s state-of-the-art technology to monitor the user’s heat stress levels.
WakeCap’s innovative technology then guide the worker through personalized guidelines to prevent heat-related illnesses. These guidelines include the amount of water needed to drink and how frequent, when to rest, and when to totally stop. These guidelines are not equal for everyone; that’s why WakeCap employs machine-learning algorithms to learn the worker’s behavior in response to different heat index measures. WakeCap’s technology can also alert respective manager in cases of emergency. WakeCap was ranked as the best project in 2015 by an expert committee from Stars of Science -Qatar Foundation’s funded project-.
WakeCap currently sits in a very strong financial position in terms of having no company debt, and at the current stage of final prototyping. This will be the first official funding round for WakeCap, and we are looking to raise a total of $500,000 USD. We anticipate that this amount will last approximately 18 months, and allow WakeCap to produce the final prototype and complete all of the necessary stages of testing before we officially go to production.
