Movesense is a battery powered device that incorporates low power sensor components with Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) enabled Micro Controller Unit (MCU). Currently commercially available Movesense Sensor is based on Nordic Semiconductor's nRF52 BLE chip fitted with 9-axis motion sensor, heart rate unit, extra memory and more.
The basic Movesense end user system comprises the following entities:
One or more Movesense sensor(s)
Mobile device (iOS, Android)
Both ends includes Movesense connectivity stack that makes them interoperate both in the device and application dimensions. While the typical use case is mobile device using services of the Movesense Devices, the symmetric Movesense communication architecture enables also Movesense devices to use services from the Mobile device.
All the Movesense devices implement the Movesense API. This REST -like api is defined, managed and released by the Movesense organisation. Key idea behind the API is to make it easy and fast for anyone to customise the device by means of one's own applications. There applications are developed using the Movesense Device SDK and updated to the physical devices over-the-air via mobile apps.
Nature Publishing Group (NPG), leading publisher of high impact scientific and medical information, has launched the OpenSearch API that provides an open, bibliographic search service for nature.com. The API grants developers access to over half a million research articles.
