Intel Health & Life Sciences blogs, publishes case study about WellCar

Tuesday, March 3, 2015

Intel Health & Life Sciences published a lengthy post about the CDR's WellCar project March 3. They wrote, "One thing I love about the WellCar is that it reflects the passions of the people who have created it. Professor Gregory Thomas, who heads the CDR and directed the project, is a cancer survivor and educator committed to having KU’s design students solve significant, real-world problems. He and his students followed best practices for user-centered innovation, including cross-disciplinary collaboration and close involvement with potential users. Students viewed the project as not simply a set of design challenges, but as something that can benefit their families and communities." 

The WellCar contains two kinds of Intel technology, a Panasonic Toughpad with the Intel Core i5 processor, which a nurse can used to securely access data in both the vehicle and the patient's home. The second solution is a custom communications platform being built around the Intel IoT (Internet of Things) Gateway. It combines technologies for networking, embedded control, enterprise-grade security, and device management. It also includes interfaces to simplify communications from small sensors and controllers up to data centers and the cloud.
