Introducing Foresense 360 – A Complete Shopping Centre Data Solution

A complete Shopping Centre Data Solution

With an ever-expanding product suite, Foresense Technologies is revolutionising commerce, government, agriculture and industry, making day-to-day processes and procedures smarter and more efficient.

At its core, the Foresense platform utilises proprietary AI to identify areas for improvement and guide commercially based decisions to increase operational KPIs and efficiencies with highly detailed, quantifiable behavioural data.

Foresense facilitates the collection of presence data and the analysis of how people act – and interact – on-site in real world settings to provide real-time analytics of traffic inside and around any physical location.

Foresense has now developed a highly specific iteration for Shopping Centre Managers and Asset Directors.

Branded Foresense 360, it introduces an all-encompassing solution to monitor individual patrons in real-time and learn overarching trends.In a similar way to how behavioural data is utilised online through careful analysis of aspects such as site navigation, page dwell time, session duration, and unique and return visitations Foresense 360 collects data through an array of sensors that integrate with visitor smartphones.

While competing platforms do take a similar approach, they require visitors to log in to the local wifi network. This places great limitations to the achievable data-sets, leaving out the vast majority of demographics who are not compelled to take advantage of free-wifi facilities.

Foresense 360 takes a different approach, harnessing the ubiquity of the smartphone and its actual hardware to glean valuable behavioural data while respecting patron privacy.

It does this by identifying the MAC address of each smartphone, the unique public identifier used by modern technology to access a digital network.

A total customer journey insight delivering definitive traffic data and heat mapsfor each and every shopfront where retail tenant rent negotiations can take on awhole new dimension beyond floor space and square meterage!

Visitors 19th February 2021

In this approach, user privacy concerns are not an issue.
Foresense 360 only sees the signals that smartphones emit; not passwords, emails, app data, GPS data or any other personal data that invades digital privacy; it sees only how smartphone owners navigate physical space.

Foresense360

As a complete journey mapping solution, individual visitor data such as total time spent on site, and the breakdown of time spent at individual shops and different areas such as food court and restroom facilities is collected.

Optimise facility location, layout and design, service provision outlets, signage and staffing levels across peak demand periods.

With a direct line of communication via push notification technology exciting new opportunities for highly targeted finecast marketing are made possible.

Detailed individual profiles can be built to identify the habits of casual, frequent and infrequent visitors and offer incentivisation for return visits to the centre or to increase visitations for particular retailers.

Foresense digital video sensors can be utilised in a new way for targeted messages based on visitor profile as they pass by, or are captive while seated or visiting the restrooms.

Foresense 360 can also increase the value of existing assets to advertisers; a new, personalised marketing avenue to reach visitors that compliments billboards, digital screens, publications, and in-house radio.

The technology can also complement existing security surveillance systems. The AI platform detects loitering, unauthorised entry, crowd crush points and can deploy security staff in real- time as issues develop.

As we learn to live with COVID, Foresense 360 can also complement existing digital tools to monitor and log visitors as they move across the entire centre to assist contact tracers and keep everyone safer. In this way it can also be used to monitor and control the number of people gathering in any given area to address crowd density regulations.

It can also identify those who have not recently received a negative COVID test result when required by current laws, or can send digital reminders to scan in at QR code points, taking responsibility out of the hands of attendants and staff.

The technology can even monitor for personal safety issues. For example, a person may appear to be moving abnormally from building exit points to the carpark exit, or may have been in the restroom for an excessive amount of time, indicating illness, collapse or injury.

And with definitive traffic data and heat maps for each and every shopfront, retail tenant rent negotiations take on a whole new dimension beyond floor space and square meterage.

Total Customer Insights Delivering Better KPIs.

Retailer Vistors

Foresense, Data Mining and the Resource Sector

Foresense platform

FORESENSE TECHNOLOGIES is revolutionising government, commerce, agriculture and industry, making day-to-day processes and procedures smarter and more efficient.

The resource sector is highly unique in the fact that many sites operate round-the-clock 24/7, 365 days of the year.

Simply put, production never ceases.

Oil-rigs, mine sites and off-shore platforms have such a complex degree of logistical management of all equipment, supplies and human resources.

Mining sites are not only large in scale, but also have a lot of people making up the workforce.

Some are the size of a small city.

Apart from actual excavation and work sites, accommodation camps, mess and canteen areas, gyms and bars, are all important areas in the overall function of the site.

Some have facilities such as bowling greens, swimming pools and even golf driving ranges.

Cooking, cleaning and transport operations are a logistical challenge in themselves.

One you add the mining workforce – technical personnel, engineers, truck drivers, heavy machinery operators, tradespeople – numbers onsite at any given time can enter into the thousands.

Coupled with the fact that many are on a transient fly-in-fly-out arrangement, it is not hard to appreciate the complexity of daily operations and people management.

Safety and efficiency are paramount to the wellbeing of the workforce and overall profitability.

With competition for skilled workers between companies at an all-time high, improving site facilities and workforce contentment is paramount to employee retention.

Foresense offers a solution where AI monitors behaviours and analyses trends to gain an unprecedented level of insight into what people want and need.

And because production never ceases in the resource sector, its impact is intensified.

Foresense facilitates the collection of presence data and the analysis of how people act – and interact – on-site in real world settings to provide real-time analytics of traffic inside and around any physical location.

It identifies areas for improvement and guides commercially based decisions with more detailed, quantifiable data to improve operational KPIs and efficiencies.

In a similar way to how behavioural data is utilised online through careful analysis of aspects such as dwell time, session duration, and return visitations the Foresense platform collects data through sensors integrating with smartphones, or wearable technology such as bracelets or smart ID cards.

"With the assistance of Foresense AI, managers can identify exactly what areas need improvement to make the site and its facilities more efficient and attractive to workers."

It allows accessibility in real time so highly-informed, proactive decisions can be executed as trends are actually emerging.

As a complete journey mapping solution, individual data such as area arrival and departure time and the breakdown of time spent within different areas is collected.

Employee movements and exact locations at any point in time can easily be accessed, and automated real time messaging can be implemented to raise alert or alarm.

With the assistance of Foresense AI, managers can identify exactly what areas need improvement to make the site and its facilities more efficient and attractive to workers.

In this way, it provides concrete justification for expenditure on new production equipment and recreational facilities.

It will also identify site layout and design changes to improve flow and efficiency.

The technology can also complement existing security surveillance systems. The AI platform detects loitering, erratic behavior and unauthorised entry and can deploy staff in real time as issues develop. For example, if an employee gains access to an area where they should not be, such as management only areas, an immediate security alert can be raised.

As we learn to live with COVID, Foresense can also complement existing digital tools to monitor and log employees and visitors as they move across the site to assist contact tracers and keep everyone safer. In this way it can also be be used to monitor and control the number of people gathering in any given area to address density regulations.

Identify those who have not recently received negative COVID testing where such laws have been introduced and those who bypass QR code scan points, sending digital reminders to scan in, taking responsibility out of the hands of management.

The technology can even be used for personal safety concerns. For example where a person is not moving across an area as normal, or has been stationary for an excessive amount of time, indicating illness, collapse or unconsciousness.

It can even be used to identify employees who exhibit signs of mental health distress; withdrawal from co-workers, lack of exercise and excessive solitude or time spent in alcohol service areas.

Foresense Technologies offers a powerful array of AI guided analytical tools to improve operational efficiencies for the mining and resource sector.

With irrefutable qualitative data readily available, minute aspects of day-to-day operations can be scrutinised with greater clarity and key decisions can be made to improve on-site work and recreational facilities and overall safety conditions and for all employees and visitors.

The resource sector extracts countless billions of dollars from the earth each year.

But its most valuable asset in a highly competitive employment market, is its people.

Foresense is not only an investment in improving operational efficiencies, it is an investment in employee wellbeing, job satisfaction and retention.

The Local Gym: Running Smarter with Healthier Margins

gym member

In today’s hustle and bustle world, finding time for health and fitness can be challenging.

Work, social life, family and other life commitments often leave little ‘me-time.’ With one’s physical wellbeing a priority for most, the local gym offers a way to ensure that we can fit a few proper workout sessions each week in our busy lives.

Making a commitment to gym membership means we can stay fit with access to expensive equipment in an environment free from distraction, regardless of the weather outside.

Simply, being a gym member gives us no excuses not to get fit, and stay fit.

But they are not without drawback for users and owners alike.

Most gym users would list waiting for equipment as a major shortcoming.

Another gripe for many is that keeping track of training regimes is not as simple as it should be.

Gym proprietors, especially SMB owner/operators, want to offer the most user-friendly experience for their members to keep them loyal and committed.

Often this means purchasing new equipment, or even limiting membership numbers to ensure that people are not left waiting too long.

This is a very fine fiscal balance between making new purchases and ensuring incoming revenue levels will justify the expenditure.

Getting this wrong can mean losing money.

Making such important decisions is often left to going on hunches and gut feelings.

To get the equation exactly right would require highly detailed minute-by-minute user data – and a high-level ability to effectively crunch the numbers.

Gyms have always been under great pressure to ensure all equipment and surrounds are clean and hygienic.

Traditionally, this has been largely left to the individual user to ‘do the right thing’ and wipe down equipment after use.

Now, living with COVID, this has taken on a whole new focus.

Simply wiping equipment down, leaving hygiene responsibilities to individual users is no longer acceptable.

Gym floor managers have to be responsible for ensuring each piece of equipment is sanitised after each and every use, and made safe for the next user.

And it is no secret that in the age of COVID, gyms are a victim of their own popularity, frequently listed as virus exposure sites around the world.

With all these pressures, gym owners sure could use some help to make them more user friendly, profitable, and safer…

Foresense Technologies is an industry leader in the collection of visitor presence data and the analysis of how people act – and interact – on-site in real world settings to provide real-time analytics of foot traffic inside and around any physical location.

In a similar way to how behavioural data is utilised online through careful analysis of aspects such as dwell time, session duration, and unique and return visitations, the Foresense platform collects data through sensors that integrate with members’ smartphones allowing accessibility in real time so highly-informed, proactive decisions can be executed as trends are actually emerging.

The Foresense platform offers an AI powered solution to gain anunprecedented level of insight into the flow and density of gym members and how they utilise and interact with the floor space and fitness equipment.

Because the platform is accessible in real-time, staff can be deployed to interact with members if they are waiting idle or if a new member appears to need assistance, for example.

As a complete journey mapping solution, individual member data such as total time spent on site, and the breakdown of time spent at each different equipment area is collected.

This offers a revolutionary new way to guide commercially based decisions with more detailed, quantifiable data to improve operational KPIs and efficiencies, optimise facility location, layout and design and staffing levels across peak demand periods.

Detailed individual profiles can be built to identify casual, frequent and infrequent members and with a direct avenue of communication via push notification technology, offer incentivisation to increase visit frequency, take home merchandise or for personal training sessions.

The technology can even complement existing security surveillance systems.

The platform detects loitering, erratic behaviour and entry to restricted access areas, alerting staff in real time.

The technology can even monitor personal safety. For example, a person may have stopped moving from building exit points to the carpark, or may have been in the restroom for an excessive amount of time, indicating illness, collapse or injury.

Foresense can track each member and the equipment they use during each visit.

In this way, a detailed report can be compiled over time for each member about their gym habits to help them reach their fitness goals as a value-added point of difference.

The platform also identifies which equipment types are most popular at which times, and if a member is waiting idle.

With detailed AI analysis, this data can be used to justify the purchase of new equipment, or conversely which equipment can be removed to ensure the utmost efficiency of floor space and member satisfaction.

In turn this can greatly assist in member retention, and ensure that the gym is operating at maximum efficiency in terms of member numbers, equipment use and revenue generation.

Foresense takes gym hygiene to a whole new level. The platform can alert staff members when a member is finished with each piece of equipment to ensure that hygiene protocols are followed.

This greatly reduces any margin for error, and places responsibility for member safety directly into the hands of dedicated staff members.

The platform also alleviates some pressures on staff members to police COVID protocols. It can identify if a member has not logged in with the QR code system, and gently remind them to do so via push notification technology, taking responsibility out of the hands of attendants and staff.

As we learn to live with COVID, Foresense can complement existing digital tools to monitor and log members as they move across the gym floor to assist contact tracers and keep everyone safer.

In this way it can be used to control the number of people gathering in any particular area to address people density regulations and overall numbers on premises.

It can also identify members who have not recently received negative COVID test results or vaccination dose status where such laws have been introduced.

Foresense also presents advertising opportunities for equipment partners and suppliers.

Highly targeted fine cast marketing direct to members smartphones, or to onsite digital screens offer a new way for messages based on member profiles as they wait or are captive during exercise.

Foresense Technologies offers a powerful array of AI guided analytical tools to improve efficiency and revenue margins for gym managers and owners – whether they are part of a national chain or a small local business operator.

At the same time, it offers all gym members and staff a smarter, more user-friendly experience day-to-day with increased safety.

One by one, Foresense Technologies is revolutionising operations across government, commerce, agriculture and industry, making them smarter, more efficient and impacting bottom line revenues.

Now gyms across the world can run smarter with a healthier bottom line too!

Improving the health of hospital systems: How AI and Foresense can make things better…

Improving the health of hospital systems

HOSPITALS ARE VERY, very busy places.

And major hospitals in metropolitan areas are very, very large in size.

Few of us stop to appreciate just how big of a logistical operation each and every hospital presents.

Most of us only think in terms of patient numbers and a capacity for beds.

When you add in the numbers of doctors, surgeons, specialists, nurses, and orderlies – not to mention administration, security, kitchen and cleaning staff – the actual floor numbers at any given time really start to multiply.

Don’t forget patient friends and family, food, equipment and supplies deliveries, tradespeople and other transient visitors that also swell the numbers on site!

The modern hospital does its best to apply logging and tracking technology they have at hand to keep track of people as they come and go.

Visitor sign-in books and tablets.Staff ID cards log them in and out as they start and finish shifts, and restrict access to certain areas.

Security cameras monitor for any signs of trouble and keep record of comings and goings.

These all work to serve a purpose – to a certain extent.

That is they keep a record for future reference if needed – they don’t really monitor in real time, in real terms.

Staff ID cards only record a single time at a single place – they do not keep track of exactly where a staff member is, or has been, throughout their day in real time in a facility as large as a hospital.

Visitor sign-ins keep a basic log but cannot keep track of people once they have entered an area, and are easy to bypass altogether if someone does not want their visit recorded.

Monitored security cameras can keep watch for antisocial behaviour in waiting room, foyer and entry areas but often miss suspicious activity as it happens in real time.

2020 has presented the global community with a new challenge in safety and security – the challenge of COVID 19.

The pandemic has brought about an extreme importance in the ability to log and monitor movement for health officials and contact tracers – especially in densely populated, high traffic areas such as hospitals.

Now, there is a new platform that can drastically increase impact and efficiency in each and every one of these areas.

That platform is Foresense Technologies.

Foresense is having major impacts in government, commerce, agriculture and industry, presenting a revolutionary new way to guide commercially based decisions with more detailed, quantifiable data to improve operational KPIs and efficiencies.

Foresense facilitates the collection of visitor presence data and the analysis of how people act – and interact – onsite in real world settings to provide real-time analytics of foot traffic inside and around any physical location.

In a similar way to how behavioural data is utilised online through careful analysis of aspects such as dwell time, session duration, and unique and return visitations the Foresense platform collects data through sensors integrating with visitors’ smartphones allowing accessibility in real time so highly-informed, proactive decisions can be executed as trends are actually emerging.

The Foresense platform offers an AI powered solution to gain an unprecedented level of insight into traffic flow and density and how staff and visitors move across, act and interact within hospital boundaries.

Staff movements and exact locations at any point in time can easily be accessed, and real time messaging can also be implemented to raise alert or alarm.

As a complete journey mapping solution, individual visitor data such as arrival and departure time, total time spent on site, and the breakdown of time spent at different areas within the hospital is collected.

The technology can also complement existing security surveillance systems. The AI platform detects loitering, erratic behaviour and unauthorised entry and can deploy security staff in real time as issues develop.For example, if a visitor gains access to an area where they should not be such as staff only areas or pharmaceutical repositories, an immediate security alert can be raised.

As we learn to live with COVID, Foresense can also complement existing digital tools to monitor and log visitors, staff and patients as they move across the hospital to assist contact tracers and keep everyone safer. In this way it can also be be used to monitor and control the number of people gathering in any given area to address crowd density regulations.

It can also identify those who have not recently received a negative COVID test where such laws have been introduced and those who bypass QR code scan points, sending digital reminders to scan in, taking responsibility out of the hands of reception staff.

The technology can even be used for personal safety concerns; where a person is not moving as normal from building exit points to the carpark exit for example, or has been in the restroom an excessive amount of time, indicating illness, collapse or unconsciousness.

The system also accommodates wearable tracking technology such as bracelets or smart ID cards.

Keep a closer monitor on patients that present unique challenges such as physically incapacitated and dementia patients, or patients that present a heightened risk through a history of drugs or violence.

Smart ID cards for staff and frequent visitors removes the necessity to have their mobile phone on their person at all times to fully log their whereabouts and movements.

Foresense Technologies offers a powerful array of AI guided analytical tools to improve operational efficiencies for hospital boards and government officials.

With qualitative data readily available, day-to-day operations can be scrutinised with greater clarity and key decisions can be made to improve working conditions for staff, comfort levels for patients and a more streamlined, safer experience for all visitors alike.

New technologies and AI have afforded far greater prospects for patient outcomes, especially in surgery and diagnostics.

The next step is making the actual buildings smarter to improve efficiencies in realworld, on-the-ground logistical operations and rudimentary day-to-day efficiencies.

That next step is Foresense.

Foresense – a World Class Development for World Class Stadiums

"With the power of digital technology and AI, Foresense Technologies can move the iconic stadiums across the world of today into a new world of tomorrow on many levels. "

MODERN CITIES TAKE great pride in their sports stadiums as a showpiece to the world.

They are telecast into living rooms, bars and function centres across the globe and act as an underlining statement of a city’s development and an advertisement for tourism.

A ‘world class’ stadium does not only look good; it also has to be ‘smart’ in this age of technology we live in. This not only makes a stadium more user friendly for its patrons, staff, and star attractions but also safer and more secure.

Long gone are the days where people at an event stay in their allocated seat, only getting up a couple of times to visit limited food facilities or the restroom.

The modern stadium has a multitude of food and drink options to cater to every taste – not just a couple of outlets selling the same lukewarm pies, hot dogs and beer.

On-site bars offer drinks on tap and large screens to watch the action.

Food outlets cater for different dietary requirements and cultural backgrounds.

In short, there are many reasons to move around the ground to sample what’s on offer.

And, aided by the mobile smartphone, people do make the most of being able to move freely across the stadium.

With smartphones, meeting up with friends, family and colleagues is easier than ever
before – and happens more often.

Social media feeds let us discover who else is at a game or event in real time and facilitate impromptu catch ups form one side of the ground to the other.

Smartphone technology can also keep us safer.

No longer do people have to put up with anti-social or even threatening or violent behavior of other patrons – a simple SMS will bring police or security staff to any area of the ground in an instant.

In more recent times, the smartphone has become an integral part of the fight against COVID using it to scan in to the places we visit.

All this is pretty smart.

But what if it could all be smarter?
Enter Foresense Technologies.

Foresense Technologies is an industry leader in the collection of visitor presence data and the analysis of how people act – and interact – on-site in real world settings to provide real-time analytics of foot traffic inside and around any physical location.

tomorrow on many levels.

It offers a safer, enhanced user experience for patrons and a powerful array of analytical tools to improve efficiency and revenue margins for managers and stakeholders.

For stadiums to continue to be considered ‘world class’ moving into the future, they simply must keep up with ‘world class’ technologies.

Knowledge is Power: Foresense in the Service Sectors

FORESENSE IS LEADING the way in how behavioural data is collected and collated, establishing its merits in a wide range of industries.

Retail, Education, Hospitality, Airports, Security, Agriculture, Stadiums and Events.

But what about the service sectors?

Doctors, Lawyers, Health and Wellbeing Clinics, Accountants, Dentists, Banking, Pharmacists – all types of advisory and consultancy professions.

Many pundits understand that technology is shaping the ways in which these types of highly specialised business practices operate, increasingly focussing on what is known as the ‘Knowledge Economy’.

The Knowledge Economy capitalises on intellectual capital; the knowledge and proprietary information that yields a competitive advantage.

Much of this is based upon the various facets of science and technology, of research and discovery specific to each and every business operating within the service sector and its clients.

Enter Foresense Technologies.

To really understand your clients, that is to obtain a really deep-seated knowledge, you need to really analyse them as people, not as numbers in accounting systems, or appointments.

You need to move forward past simple surface analysis such as monthly billings and frequency of face to face consultation hours.

Utilising the ubiquity of smartphones, Foresense uses the smartphone hardware itself as a beacon to collect highly detailed data sets on how people act and interact in and with their immediate environment to provide real-time analytics inside and around any physical location.

In a similar way to how behavioural data is utilised online through careful analysis of aspects such as dwell time, session duration, and unique and return visitations the Foresense platform collects data through AI sensors integrating with visitors’ smartphones allowing accessibility in real time so highly-informed, proactive decisions can be executed as trends are actually emerging.

In this way, specialists providing any type of consultancy service can use the platform to gain a next level of knowledge about their clients.

Breakdown the entire client experience from total time spent at the facility – and in individual sections.

Learn in real time when they enter the building, carpark or waiting room – and know how much time they spend in any given area to address any shortfalls in limits of acceptability.

In larger spaces where multiple businesses operate, learn how people move between parking, food and restroom facilities. In medical centres, discover how many take advantage of onsite pharmacies after visiting GP’s or Dentists, for example.

Automatically identify and alert key clients and VIP’s to reception and other staff so they can be warmly greeted and made to feel valued.

Dovetail the Foresense platform into existing internal client management software to streamline processes of identifying upcoming appointments and bringing up previous history or notes. Raise personal characteristics and personal sensibilities easily and efficiently so any staff dealing with a particular client is fully aware at all times.

The platform can also use visitor data for tailored messages on the smartphone screen or via close proximity digital signage for informational or advertising purposes.

In an age where sharing of touchscreens and kiosk tablets raises hygiene issues, push questionnaires and forms on to personal devices.

Overcome email spam aversion and push newsletters and other pertinent updates directly to clients’ phones as they wait for appointments.

In a post-COVID world, Foresense can be used to monitor and control the number of people gathering in any given area to address crowd density regulations and even identify people who have not been recently received negative COVID testing where such laws and applications have been introduced.

The technology can even be used for security and safety concerns to identify suspicious loitering or access to a restricted area, or when a person is not moving as normal across any given space, indicating collapse or injury.

With highly specific information readily at hand Foresense Technology gathers the knowledge to determine data driven actions to constantly improve efficiency of operations and increase client loyalty.

And in turn increase market share, revenue and profitability – by improving both the client experience and overall efficiency of staff.

The Foresense Solution – You know what it is, but how does it work?

OVER THE COURSE of the past few years, leaders in retail, commerce, industry, agriculture and Government have come to hear of how the Foresense platform is shaping the future of behavioral analytics, traceability and Big Data.

From retail shopfronts to crop farming, from airports to childcare, from education to hospitality, Foresense promises to revolutionise how behavioural data is collected and collated to inform key decision making at a level never before seen.

But how does it actually work?
While the more technical minded would have already looked into the intricacies of the platform, many may not have stopped to consider exactly how it works…

New Phone Technology is the Key
Firstly, the cornerstone of the Foresense platform is the ubiquity of the modern smartphone.

Global smartphone ownership is rising rapidly. Some estimates place the number of mobile devices as approaching 6 billion – with more than half of that being smartphones.

Numbers aside, they are everywhere we turn in modern technologically advanced societies.

Each and every network connected device, including each and every smartphone, has a unique identifier known as a media access control or MAC address.

Primarily designated by device manufacturers, MAC addresses essentially give a device its own exclusive 12 hexadecimal digit tag, much like a cars registration.

And like a cars registration when in the public eye, it is visible to everyone who is looking.

This is necessary to facilitate initial communication between devices across a network – like when joining a Wi-Fi connection.

Secondly, the Foresense platform hardware consists of a series of proprietary mini-sensors.

Smaller than a deck of cards, they digitally communicate with similarly enabled devices in their vicinity across a Wi-Fi network, including smartphones.

Simply put, it uses existing Wi-Fi installations to interact with smartphones and glean valuable user behavioural data trends.

That is fast – the kind of fast which makes real-time analytics possible.

The firmware and antenna design are optimised to provide the most highly accurate and time-sensitive dedicated analytics sensor on the market.

This approach allows for highly complex data sets to be obtained with both minimal costs and minimal disruption to existing systems.

AI in the Middle, Complete End-User Power at the End

With a complete AI software system driving its analytical power to provide data in real- time, Foresense can free site managers and key decision makers from the number crunching and analytical burdens.

Combined with the graphical user interface, or GUI, known as the Foresense Dashboard the AI software system allows immediate access to answers for any particular questions asked of it.

Through the Dashboard, Foresense enables key decision makers to execute highly informed, proactive decisions in real time as issues arise, problems present and trends emerge day-to-day.

With a highly visual user experience and a comprehensive set of analytical tools Foresense delivers a unique, powerful, intuitive platform to improve operations that anyone can access.

Digital Privacy in a Public World

Privacy is a contentious issue for any player in the digital arena.

As a forward thinking company Foresense is leads form the front in this area too.

Foresense is blind to individual users, and their private data.

It has a greater focus on bigger picture, rather than individual elements.

It sees only the signals that smartphones emit; not passwords, emails, app data, GPS data or any other personal data that invades digital privacy.

It sees only how smartphone owners navigate physical space.

While other digital technologies such as web browsers, search engines and phone apps can, and do, create highly invasive personal profiles of their users, the Foresense Platform by default uses the anonymous data gathered to determine aggregated behavioural trends so the spaces in retail, commerce, industry, agriculture and Government that utilise the technology can offer a better customer or visitor experience en masse.

Foresense for the Future

Foresense Technologies is ready for the world of tomorrow.

As the only turnkey solution in the market space, it is easily implemented into day-to-day operations of any space where traffic moves through or gathers.

The Foresense Platform can increase efficiency and safety, decrease costs and increase revenue at low investment in almost any environment.

With a number of research and development projects underway to expand the system and its features, watch this space!

Another acronym you need to know about

Another acronym you need to know about

ACRONYMS ARE EVERYWHERE in business, technology and popular culture.

NBC, ESPN, AT&T, CFO, IBM.

GMO, CAPTCHA, GIF.

YOLO, TGIF, OMG, LOL.

Most recognise these examples but what about IoT?

It stands for ‘Internet of Things’ – a term that describes interconnected devices – devices that can be connected to one another, and/or to the internet.

More specifically, it describes the network of objects – or things – that contain technology such as software or sensors that connect with other devices to exchange data.

In today’s modern digitally connected world, just about everything can be connected to another device or the internet.

Headphones, watches, stereos – even coffee makers and washing machines.

Remote health monitoring and emergency notification devices.

Automated technologies such as smart homes, security, traffic lights and toll collection systems.

Smart devices such as speakers and phones.

All these ‘things’ come under this umbrella term, IoT.

And so does the Foresense platform.

Foresense simplifies the collection of presence data and the analysis of action – and interaction – on-site in real world settings to provide real-time AI analytics of traffic inside and around any physical location with applications across government, commerce and industry for smarter, safer physical spaces.

Like automated systems and smart devices, Foresense has evolved due to technological convergence, where multiple technologies have come to merge into singular entities, a new-age sum of their many parts.

Smartphones combine GPS, music players, cameras, and internet access…and they also make phonecalls.

The smart home is actually a combination of systems for heating, cooling, lighting, door and gate locking and appliance control.

The Foresense platform works by placing numerous proprietary sensors around a physical space or location. The location can be relatively small – such as in a retail shopfront or apartment, or much larger in scale such as a farm or cattle station.

These sensors communicate with smartphones or specialised tags (agriculture) or wearables (child and aged care) to monitor movement and behaviour.

The sensors then relay this data via Wi-Fi to the internet, and on to the AI software which collates data and analyses trends.

The resultant data is accessed via the Foresense Dashboard, an internet portal where information is obtained from the graphical user interface.

The Foresense sensor is actually a convergent technology in itself – combining the ability to communicate with smartphones and the Foresense AI software with environmental sensors such as temperature, humidity and ambient light levels.

The sensors can even be equipped to allow automated control of other systems in industrial and agricultural applications such as water flow and heating/cooling, for example.

As you can see, Foresense is a highly relevant, contemporary example of an IoT platform where all of its component parts are interconnected with each other and the internet itself.

And as with all contemporary platforms concerned with the internet and online access, the growth of IoT has also grown concerns around data privacy and security.

Foresense recognises this – and Foresense works a little differently.

Foresense is blind to individual users, and their private data with a focus on bigger picture, rather than individual elements.

The platform sees only the signals smartphones emit; not passwords, emails, app data, GPS data or any other personal data that invades digital privacy.

It can be said that Foresense is actually innovating both interconnectivity and privacy in the age of IoT; an age where the two are so often at best uneasy bedfellows…and mutually exclusive at worst!
