Best Connected Device and Wearable Tech

- Silver

BMW is pressing its claim to automotive brand leadership in the world of mobile vehicle connectivity through its BMW ConnectedDrive technology. As the BMW i Remote app confirms, nowhere else is the link-up of driver, car and outside world raised to such an advanced level. The app can already be used to remotely check and control functions of BMW i models. It is an application that customers will also be able to use from day one on the new Apple Watch, due for imminent release. Apple Watch uses the BMW i Remote app – which can be downloaded free from the Apple iTunes Store – to keep users updated on the car’s current battery status, for example, and alert them when the high-voltage unit is fully charged. In addition, Apple Watch can continue the navigation instructions from the BMW i3 to the user’s final destination after the car has been parked as well as guiding them back to the car if required. And it also allows the interior temperature to be pre-conditioned. The new smartwatch features an innovative glance screen for applications which groups together the most important information provided by the app so that it can be viewed at a single glance. As well as the car’s battery charge, the available range and the timing of updates, the glance screen also shows BMW i Remote app users whether the car doors are locked.

iBiker - Peninsula Motorcycle Forum / Compsoft

Community

- Silver

Although motorcyclists account for less than 3% of road users, nationally they are involved in approximately one in every five fatal collisions. Bikers are also substantially over-represented in other serious collisions. However the motorcycle community is often extremely difficult to engage with on the subject of road safety; many feel they are above average riders so have no need of further training. The iBiker apps for iPhone and Android were created to get the most at-risk and “off-the-radar” bikers to engage with a different form of education and training, where more traditional methods have proved ineffective.

Santander SmartBank - Santander / Monitise Create

FinTech

- Silver

Conquering ‘checkingyourbankbalanceaphobia’ Balance checking. To the onlooker, it might seem a simple enough process – a few clicks. But in reality, the road to the statement can be paved with any number of obstacles – fear, cold sweats, and of course, it’s-one-week-before-paycheck-I’m-pretty-sure-it-should-be-fine denial. It means that few people really understand what’s going on in their bank account. This is checkingyourbankbalanceaphobia and in 2014, Santander decided enough was enough. It was time to put a stop to intimidating streams of meaningless numbers appearing on-screen and replace them with personalised information that actually makes sense. SmartBank was born.

Low cost phone app to diagnose pneumonia - Nossal Institute for Global Health

Health

- Silver

The app allows health workers in the field, particularly in remote areas, to accurately count breaths so they can distinguish between pneumonia and other causes of fever that less often increase breathing rates, such as malaria and colds. The ingenious but easy-to-use app asks for the child’s age and then tells the health worker to press any numerical button on the phone every time the child breathes. The app then gives an estimate of the breathing rate after 10 breaths and again after 20 breaths, before giving a final one-minute count. Once a faster breathing rate is detected, the workers can diagnose pneumonia and give suitable antibiotic treatment rather than misdiagnose a cold and send the child home where they may die.

What3words - what3words

TravelTech

- Gold

The world is poorly addressed. This is frustrating and costly in developed nations; and in developing nations this is life-threatening and growth limiting. what3words is a unique combination of just 3 words that identifies a 3mx3m square, anywhere on the planet.
