Frequently Asked Questions

1. What does Nucleus Vision do?

Nucleus Vision is an end-to-end technology solution that captures and provides previously inaccessible data to retailers and other ‘brick-and-mortar’ businesses through its proprietary blockchain and real-time sensor technology.

2. How does Nucleus Vision work?

Nucleus Vision has created a proprietary sensor technology that can uniquely identify users and detects temperature, pressure, motion, acceleration, and sound within its vicinity. This sensor can identify any customer in a physical store without Bluetooth, Wi-Fi or GPS protocols, and is completely seamless and frictionless. Our IoT sensor technology is able to detect mobile phones as they pass through storefronts or any other location where a sensor is set up, enabling our users to detect visitor phones and mobile ID data privately over blockchain.

This sensor feeds user-authorized data to an intelligence platform. In its current avatar, this intelligence engine provides users with useful and relevant product recommendations at brick-and-mortar retail locations.

3. What sectors or verticals will Nucleus Vision focus on?

The early focus of our adoption strategy revolves around the retail sector. However, the Nucleus Vision platform has applications in various markets. In its second phase of growth, Nucleus Vision will deploy its smart IoT sensors across residential, commercial and industrial security systems. In phase three, we have our sights set on connecting the world through an ecosystem of interconnected IoT devices. Nucleus Vision’s technology team has already begun putting together the frameworks for Nucleus Vision Home, Nucleus Vision Cars, Nucleus Vision Health, Nucleus Vision Agri, Nucleus Vision City and Nucleus Vision Air. We believe that the Nucleus Vision platform has massive applications for smart communities/smart cities, agriculture, transportation, healthcare, and home monitoring.

4. Does Nucleus Vision have a live & functional product?

Nucleus Vision has spent the last three years building out the fundamental technology that powers its sensors and architecture. Nucleus Vision IoT sensor technology is already live in 10 stores and is garnering an excellent response from retailers and customers alike.
