At Pontosense, we have a groundbreaking mission: saving lives. Our wireless sensing modules are at the forefront of this life-saving technology, the only one of its kind in the world; offering unparalleled medical-grade accuracy for crucial biometrics.
Imagine a sensor that can wirelessly monitor vital signs like heart rate, breathing, and even advanced biometrics. This sensor becomes your personal guardian angel, promptly alerting your car or house at the first sign of an emergency. With Pontosense, you can ensure the safety of your living space like never before. Today, we are fortunate to work with the most prominent automotive and smart home companies – think of one; chances are, we are their partner.
Founded in Waterloo, we have grown to offices in Toronto, Japan, China, and Germany. Our founding team has invented over 500+ patents (more than Airbnb and Snapchat combined!) and built three different unicorns ($1B+ market cap), and wireless sensing is our passion - we want to change the world for the better.
