Braci is a sound recognition platform that detects and converts sounds that happen around us in to sensory and visual notifications through smart devices back to the wearer/user. This technology relies on converting sounds into digital fingerprints and allowing these fingerprints to be recognised and matched using the microphones on smart devices.
From this technology Braci has empowered several applications and packages, with a main focus on the SoundAlert application and packages.SoundAlert is an application that allows users who are deaf, hard of hearing, and elderly to feel safe, secure and more comfortable in knowing they will be alerted to sounds that happen around them, as well as being able to live more independently. SoundAlert functions through recognizing and analysing sounds from the environment and converting these into vibrations, on-screen notifications, and flashing lights which can be displayed on a smartphone, smartwatch or other portable device. It is capable of detecting an extensive variety of indoor and outdoor sounds, including fire alarms, door bells, landlines, home appliances, and baby crying among others.
