Our CEO Cornelia Mender will be presenting at the Growth Summit conference on Wednesday November 8, where Web Summit invites the CEOs and founders of the world’s most promising companies to speak on the Web Summit stage.

Novelda's CEO Mrs. Cornelia Mender

Cornelia will talk about Novelda’s XeThru sensors to detect human presence and read vital signs. She will explain how the XeThru sensors makes it easy for customers to use UWB radar technology. Before these sensors were available, customers could buy a radar System-on-Chip from Novelda, but had to design a PCB, antennas, and develop their own signal processing algorithms to get to a product with a radar sensor. With the X4M200 Respiration Sensor and the X4M300 Presence Sensor, customers can design their product without being radar experts and this takes the customer’s design time down from 36 to 9 months.

Cornelia will also talk about the importance of working closely with key customers during product development. Close cooperation both helps developing the right sensor products for the end application and is important to utilize complementary skills and knowledge at the customer and Novelda.

XeThru sensor for elderly care

Novelda’s X4M200 Respiration Sensor and X4M300 Presence Sensor are used in many different applications. One use case example is monitoring of elderly people living at home or in an institution where XeThru sensors can understand if a person is sitting still too long, is wandering at night, is asleep or awake, is present in the bed, is turning while in bed, and if the person stays longer than normal in the bathroom.
