Harimata created the app Play.Care system. Parents can download Play.Care on their iPad and let the child play a game for 15 minutes. During game play, an analytics engine analyses the child’s behaviour through more than 340 parameters per second, collecting touch-screen, movement sensor and game flow data. The app generates a report, providing an estimate of the risk that the child may develop autism. If the risk is high, parents are encouraged to see a child therapist for further analysis.
