Wireless Gateways & Cockpit Functions for Wearables
This short application note describes how to connect the CORE sensor to a wireless gateway. Various wearable wireless gateways are also presented with a short preview of their corresponding cockpit functions. For more question about gateways compatibility, contact us!
What is a Wireless Gateway network?
By definition, a wireless gateway network is a data communication device that provides a remote network with connectivity to a host network. It provides communication to a remote network or an autonomous system that is out of reach for the host network nodes.
greenTEG provides freely its own CORE cloud dashboard which gives the user the ability to see instantaneously live data and historic data of all “owned” CORE devices linked to a particular CORE cloud account. This functionality is of particular interest for use cases where it is required to record the vital signs of a team of several workers or operators simultaneously.
The data collection on the CORE cloud requires the user to have the CORE connected via Bluetooth to a smartphone acting as a gateway. For specific use cases, greenTEG identified and partnered with external providers of gateways offering various Cockpit functions detailed in the following.
How important are wireless gateways for Wearables ?
One of the main reasons for using a gateway system with wearables is to automatically and remotely gather measurement data from devices with a minimum user interaction. This leverages remote monitoring of many different sensors simultaneously, instead of using e. g. mobile phone applications that would often require one-to-one pairing with a single sensor.
The wireless connection to a local (or remote) network of the gateway furthermore facilitates routing the measurement data to a central server for further processing. This could also simply be a display device showing a dashboard with live data.
Furthermore, gateway networks usually support roaming. This means that different nodes will coordinate connections while a device travels through the gateway network.

CORE as a Wireless Gateway and Cockpit Solution
As CORE is using public Bluetooth & ANT+ profiles to transmit the temperature data. CORE can be used as a standalone wearable connected to any gateway solution. An API solution can also be provided with only restricted access to customer, e.g. for writing third party apps which connect to the CORE.
CORE offers also its own Cloud Cockpit solution, find out more here.
