BRAC is the world’s largest NGO, running health, education, finance, and other programs that improve hundreds of millions of lives globally. BRAC supported the very first field tests of Simprints technology, and we closely partner with their health and research teams on biometric-empowered mobile healthcare projects in the slums of Dhaka.
The idea behind Simprints originates from an ARM sponsored Hackathon and we have been working closely with them ever since. They provided our very first significant funding ($150k) and their embedded engineers have helped us develop the fingerprint collection platform we used to collect 120,000 fingerprint images in 2015. We also co-authored a chapter for a World Economic Forum Report.
SEARAN is the maker of dotstackTM, an ultra small Bluetooth stack that enables new classes of low cost and low power embedded devices. SEARAN is powering Simprints’ connectivity across multiple platforms with their robust, Bluetooth SIG qualified stack. SEARAN provides free software kit and exceptional, experienced and expedient hands-on free support to Simprints developers.
We were accepted as the first ever external company to take part in their Down Tools Week, where 12 Redgate developers spend a total of 60 developer days improving the speed and accuracy of our matching algorithm, a highly successful week that was also covered by the BBC. We are currently planning the next Down Tools Week for 2016.
Fen Technology Ltd provides electronics product design support. Fen’s IoT and instrumentation experience was essential in bridging the critical connectivity challenges in this project. Integrating Fen’s development team with Simprints allowed us to maintain ownership, while bringing Fen’s considerable product development experience to bear on taking an idea from concept to production.
therefore are internationally renowned, London based, product designers and engineers. They are the only consultancy to win the D&AD ‘Yellow’, ‘White’, and coveted ‘Black’ pencil awards for product. therefore’s strategic support for Simprints includes concept creation to user led ergonomics and detailed design for manufacture of the fingerprint scanner.
We are very grateful for the generous support we are receiving from the following companies.
