More information about the project
”The mobile app provides authenticated users an interface to scan children in 3D with consent of the parents and upload all collected data to the secure backend.
We guide the user to scan the child in a way that a quick, accurate measurement can be taken. This will involves data of the camera and child pose, point clouds and RGB video.
Because of the limitations of mobile connectivity in rural areas and in slums with tin roofs offline first is a major goal of the project. While the app already works fine in offline environments, results from the scans are currently produced in the cloud. Providing predictions directly on the device is the next big step we are taking, as it would also improve privacy by not having to upload every scan.
Before any data is accessed or added our trained team explains to parents in simple terms that
the data belongs to the children and parents,
they give us the rights to store and process the data for a limited time
this right can be revoked any time and the data deleted
we are using the data only for the achieving the UN goal of Zero Hunger by 2030”
