Consumer disposable and smartphone app for consumer engagement
Our client wanted to develop a way for consumers to measure their
hair properties at home that was highly accurate, but cheap enough to
be given away as a disposable.
We assessed various options and identified optical smartphone-based
measurements as a solution, developing algorithms and
demonstrating proof-of-principle measurements on a smartphone.
This was supported by performing validation tests against real hair
samples to determine the accuracy and reliability.
Our solution offered a highly precise measurement method using
only a modern smartphone and a cheap, disposable aid. In addition,
smartphone-based measurements offered the client a new platform
for consumer engagement and collection of demographic information.
Our consultants, scientists and engineers redefine what’s possible and help R&D groups across the medical, industrial, consumer and food and beverage sectors achieve commercial return from their opportunities.
We have completed over 10,000 projects for start-ups and global market leaders alike, from understanding the market & technology landscape through to developing and delivering complex products.
