Transforming smartphone sensors into powerful sources of health insights
We are developing sensing technologies to detect vital health information that can work on smartphones around the world. By making health knowledge accessible with devices people already have, we can help expand access to care globally.
Sleep Sensing on Nest Hub
Sleep Sensing uses Motion Sense to analyze how the person closest to the display is sleeping, based on their movement and breathing. Sleep Sensing can also detect sleep disturbances like coughing and snoring or the light and temperature changes in the room, so you can better understand what’s impacting your sleep.
Sleep Sensing was built with your privacy in mind. Motion Sense only detects motion, not specific bodies or faces, and your coughing and snoring audio data is only processed on the device. You have multiple controls to disable Sleep Sensing features, including a hardware switch that physically disables the microphone. You can review or delete your sleep data at any time, and consistent with our privacy commitments, it isn't used for personalized ads.
