Belarusian Device Nominated For Elektra Award
ZIVE, a radiation monitor built by a Belarusian based startup R–Nox, is shortlisted for 2016 Elektra Awards.
The device is nominated in the category Internet–of–Things Product Innovation Award. R–Nox will compete with five other companies, such as Adesto Technologies, Imagination Technologies, RuvviTag, Semtech, and Utilitywise.
Vadim Radzivill, CEO at R–Nox, joked about ZIVE being a small herring in the sea of whales compared to the other nominees. On a more serious note, he emphasized the importance of the nomination. According to Radzivill, a small Belarusian startup can compete with big international companies on the same level. He also explained that the jury evaluated the device itself, as well as the infrastructure of the Internet of Things and analytics that was created during the project.
ZIVE is a professional Geiger–Müller counter with a clear user–friendly interface. It transfers data to mobile phones and tablets via Bluetooth. Due to the open–source API platform, ZIVE can be the basis for the development of other products in the field of environmental and health protection.
The winners of 2016 Elektra Awards will be announced on December 1 in London.
