Kai Sensors Secures US Army Funding for Radar on a Chip

Kai Sensors is a Honolulu-based developer of wireless heart rate and respiration sensing technology. Its heart sensing radar technology named LifeReader has the ability to detect and monitor heart and respiration activity of multiple subjects wirelessly. The company hopes that its chips will someday be integrated into products for the automotive, homeland security, and medical markets. For example, sensors in a car, could improve driver and passenger safety by detecting a baby mistakenly left in a car, by delivering medical information on passengers involved in an accident, and by alerting a driver when he is falling asleep or in medical danger.
