LA Auto Show Roundup

We’ve just returned from the LA Auto Show, where Rock Health teamed up with Faurecia to explore the car seat as the next connected health platform. Aside from checking out the latest and hottest new cars, we sat down with a team of experts from healthcare, technology and automotive for an innovation workshop. Participants included experts from across industries and organizations: Dana Lowell, Director of Advanced Business Development at Faurecia, Amar Kendale, VP of Strategy & Market Development at MC10, Adam Dole, Business Planning Manager at the Mayo Clinic, Aiman Abdel-Malek,  VP of Engineering at Qualcomm Life, and Rock Health’s own Halle Tecco.

MySkin Inc (makers of the mySkin app) was the winner of our Smart Seating competition, and in addition to participating in the workshop, won a free pass and travel stipend to the auto show. They won for their idea to embed a skin imaging device into Smart Seats to track everything from moisture levels to UV radiation.
