SoftServe received the Silver Globee 6th Annual 2021 Business Excellence Awards for technological solutions developed by the company for use during the pandemic.

Globee Business Awards is an annual American award that celebrates the best global businesses and their achievements in various nominations – from building a corporate brand, developing employees, creating internal products and implementing remote initiatives, etc.

The Ukrainian company SoftServe received a silver award for solutions that help businesses to work during the pandemic. In particular, these are such projects – People counting (sensors that are installed at the entrance of the room to track the number of people), Biosense (a unique technology that helps to measure a person’s pulse, heartbeat thanks to a smartphone or computer camera – the technology is based on the analysis of pixels of a person’s image from the camera), TouchlessAI (a technology that aims to reproduce tactile sensations at a distance – based on neurocognitive models using a special AI model).

The award-winning solutions are being developed by the company’s R&D department, which provides high-tech developments and scientific research.

Covid-19 has accelerated the implementation of sensor technologies and solutions that allow social interaction at a distance. The video provides an opportunity to see a person on the other side of the planet and read the person’s vital indicators, such as heart rate, respiratory rate, or facial micro-expressions. Before the pandemic, our focus was on the future of telemedicine or safety in production, today these technologies are important for use in the social sphere, allowing people to feel each other better during teleconferences,” – comments Mykola Maksymenko, R&D Director, SoftServe.

People counting and Biosense projects are already piloted by the company’s customers in the retail and telemedicine segment. The TouchlessAI project received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation program. SoftServe’s R&D team develops the project with University College London, University of Copenhagen, Ultraleap, UPNA, and Crowdhelix.
