Dr. Harro Stokman is the CEO and Founder of Kepler Vision Technologies will present at the Embedded Vision Summit 2021. Kepler Vision Technologies is a company using human activity recognition software to improve the well-being of humans at night. An expert in computer vision technology, Dr. Stokman founded Kepler Vision Technologies in 2018 after recognizing the potential for machine learning-driven human activity recognition software for cutting down on the workload of healthcare staff and finding fallen clients within 60 seconds. Now the Kepler Night Nurse software serves as an advanced home automation system that keeps patients safe and reduces the stress and workload of staff in the elderly care space. Stokman is a serial entrepreneur. In 2014, his previous company Euvision was acquired by Qualcomm.
Around the world, there is a serious and growing shortage of nurses. Nursing care at night is a particular challenge because night shifts are less attractive to nurses and since patients’ needed rest can be disturbed by in-person monitoring. Computer-vision-based activity detection provides the ability to reliably monitor patients and alert nurses when assistance is needed. But creating and deploying a solution requires overcoming several significant obstacles. For example, a single overhead camera with a fisheye lens capable of viewing an entire room delivers very distorted images. In addition, privacy is a critical concern. And, care facilities often have minimal IT infrastructure and staff. In this talk at the Embedded Vision Summit, Dr. Harro Stokman will explain how his company’s Kepler Night Nurse product has overcome these challenges and achieved registration as a medical device.
