Augmented Sense Technologies (AST)
No matter what you’re doing or wearing, The gestr ("jester") Augmented Awareness System seamlessly delivers enhanced real-time situational information AND eyes-free control of your mobile tech so you can stay focused on what’s ahead, instead of a touchscreen.
At AST we’re walking the walk of Vision Zero and other urban livability initiatives by saving lives and encouraging sustainable transportation with advanced technology.
gestr™ is a tiny, wearable remote-control device that allows the user to control their smartphone using familiar swipe and tap gestures without looking at or touching anything.
At AST, our patented technology uses advanced sensors, an AI algorithm, and a dedicated APP to help vulnerable road users (VRU) such as cyclists, scooters, and pedestrians have a distraction-free mobile operation enabling safe enjoyment of the outdoors. Our platform has a wide range of features that are created with the aim to help you enjoy the outdoors safely whether walking or cycling to avoid accidents, and reduce VRU fatalities
The Gesture Recognition
Seamless, hands-free, mindblowingly convenient
Gesture recognition enables lovers of all activities to quickly and easily control multiple smartphone functions with intuitive swipes and taps, without looking at or touching anything, no matter what you're wearing.
How Does it work?
Using advanced technology, this device combines a minute sensor module and a fashionable and flexible activating ring to interpret intuitive hand gestures that trigger a customizable action on your smartphone. From dialing 911 to a navigation app to something as simple as announcing the time of day – controlling audio and cellphone. The sensing module fits under whatever you’re wearing and is sensitive enough to work with the puffiest of mittens.
THE WORLD'S FIRST SENSE AUGMENTATION SYSTEM SPECIFICALLY DESIGNED FOR OUTDOOR ENTHUSIASTS
While vehicle fatalities continue to fall, cyclist, pedestrian and now scooter fatalities continue to rise. ATS intends to reverse that trend by bringing assisted driving technologies to sustainable transportation and rethinking the way we interact with smartphones.
THE THREE PILLARS OF "AUGMENTED AWARENESS"
Because if you're focusing on a touchscreen you're not paying attention to what's right in front of you.
This patented technology allows you to do anything with your smartphone without taking it out of your pocket.
Achieve total screen freedom
The gestr system allows you to break free of your screen so you can stay focused on where you're going and what you're doing.
One device, infinite activities
The gestr's simple, convenient design allows it to be used for anything, eliminating the need to waste money on sport-specific solutions.
Small & seamlessly hidden
The gestr modules are tiny and easily disappear into any article of clothing or blend in like jewelry.
Simple & Intuitive
The gestr uses simple and intuitive gestures, which allow for easy, convenient control, anything, anywhere, no matter what you're wearing.
Fast & simple charging
The gestr's wireless charging case provides secure storage and quick charging for the module.
Numerous applications to the real world
Gadgettronix services 3 major vertical markets using the gestr architecture as a framework. These include health, fitness, and recreation, Smart Cities mobility, and the industrial, scientific, and medical fields, as well as other applications where situational awareness and smartphone/devices interactivity collide.
INDUSTRIAL, SCIENTIFIC, & MEDICAL
Infinite use cases
Play your go-to song before you drop into the half-pipe with a tap, mute your playback when a cyclist approaches you from behind when trail running, read your bicycle power meter with a swipe, and so much more.
Building upon the Smart Cities infrastructure
Distracted walking and riding could be eliminated and safety could be increased by removing the hazard of focusing on screens. Meanwhile, the popularity of human powered modes of transportation (walking, biking, etc.) would be increased, contributing to the Smart Cities initiative.
Improve productivity for service workers
The gestr technology could be integrated into the workflow anytime protective gear AND device access are needed at the same time.
For example, nurses that use company-issued smartphones would be able to call the floor desk while keeping both hands free.
Over half of all cyclists, runners, gym-goers, and skiers listen to music.
Using the gestr, eliminate distracted transportation & increase safety and efficiency.
