Staying hydrated is especially important for keeping healthy, though the daily recommended water intake is influenced by a person’s size, age, and physical activity. Sometimes it is hard to remember how much liquid you have consumed and when you feel thirsty, you may already be experiencing dehydration. Therefore, the Seeker desires a seamless tracking system for users to monitor their water consumption with ease.
This is an electronic Request-for-Partners (eRFP) Challenge; the Solver will only need to submit a written proposal to be evaluated by the Seeker with the goal of establishing a collaborative partnership.
Water is necessary for maintaining a healthy lifestyle and it has been shown that even mild dehydration can negatively impact a person’s physical and mental well-being. By using sensors, it is possible to collect data from everyday items such as water bottles and dispensers in order to create a smart hydration ecosystem in which consumers can easily track their daily consumption and in theory, receive reminders or personalized recommendations. The market for smart hydration is quickly growing, thus, the Seeker is interested in an “off-the-shelf” hydration tracking solution that could revolutionize the beverage industry.
Submissions to this Challenge must be received by 11:59 PM (US Eastern Time) on June 29, 2019.
