The teams have each accepted $1,000 to fund their efforts to create smartphone applications.
1) Toco Transducer and Tocodynomometer – with smart phone APP – will be used to help pregnant women in early labor determine when to get to the hospital. They hope to reduce false alarms and get help for women who really need it but may not realize it.
2) Binspace – an APP to help students find available study or meeting locations on campus.
Each team has an assigned IBM volunteer buddy who will act as coach or mentor.
