Phase I SBIR Virtual Medical Concierge Application - July 2015
Adaptive Methods, Inc. of Centreville, VA was awarded a Phase 1 SBIR contract under topic DHP15-003, Virtual Medical Concierge Application. Adaptive Methods will prototype an application to assist visitors in navigating a huge complex, such as the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center (WRNMMC). This research will use Bluetooth Low Energy technology beacons, and leverage prior Context-aware Multi-Objective Planner (CMOP) optimization technology to provide route planning and re-planning as the visitor moves through the facility. The application will run on virtually any smart phone without any additional hardware. CMOP has the ability to combine user needs with building layout to optimize the route per user from entry into a GPS fenced zone around the WRNMMC to the user’s final destination. CMOP may be used to determine facility transit times prior to visiting. Research is expected to be performed at the Adaptive Methods Centreville location.
