The two companies partnered to develop a custom earpiece with an integrated temperature sensor. The sensor is wirelessly enabled by a SEATOOTH wireless Personal Area Network (wPAN) node that transmits the diver’s core body temperature to SEATOOTH Wireless Communication and Control System (SWiCOM), a wireless underwater tablet that ensures secure and resilient communications. This allows a diver buddy to monitor the diver’s core body temperature through a secured connection.
The first generation of Seatooth SWiCOM was launched in early 2017 to gather customer feedback. On that basis, the system was upgraded with an improved user interface, extended communications range and additional functionality.
