Competitive Analysis

iPhone and Android Apps

We looked at various iPhone apps, ranging from applications to help manage caring for a newborn baby to applications to help adults track their own moods.

Sensor Systems

We looked at various sensing systems that helped to monitor children or perform ubiquitous sensing.

After reviewing the applications above, we saw our opportunity in the following areas:

  • aiming our application at parents of TODDLERS, instead of babies
  • offer AUTOMATED DETECTION of child's health and habits, instead of manual input
  • INTERPRET information based on aggregate data, instead of just displaying data over time
