The best night of sleep without medication.

Somnox is the first non-medicinal solution in the form of a soft robotic friend that actively helps you sleep. Somnox enables you to fall asleep more easily, experience more deep sleep and wake up more energized.

How does Somnox do that, you wonder? Let us explain.

So how does it do that?

Somnox gathers data. Lots of data.

Somnox has multiple high-sensitive sensors that gather lots of data. Data that can be used to see whether you are awake or in a lovely deep sleep.
We created an artificial intelligent algorithm that can interpret the data to come up with a tailor-made ‘treatment’.
This ‘treatment’ is realized due to the following functionalities

Falling asleep and waking up are as easy as 1, 2, 3…


The power of breathing

Breathing Regulation

Personal Therapy

Somnox can simulate breathing, just like a mammal. It registers your sleeping state and adjusts its sleeping rhythm to a peaceful state. In this way you’ll be able to feel the proper breathing rhythm and adapt to it yourselve. Fall asleep in 1,2,3…
Somnox will provide a breathing simulation, based on your own breathing behaviour during the night. It will recognise you and change its settings automatically. In this way it will become your soft robotic friend through the night.

Additional features for ultimate relaxation.

Besides these features, Somnox has more: Smart Sound and Smart Light. Hover over the images to learn more about these other features.

Bedtime Stories

Wake up by the sun

Somnox has bluetooth speakers built-in. In this way it can play every song you want to fall asleep. It can even tell you bedtime stories! It stops playing as soon as you fall asleep. In the morning it can play your favorite alarm sound or music.
In the morning somnox will wake you up with a rising sun. By emitting a gradually increasing light, you’ll wake up in a natural way. Waking up just got easy.

Scientific Research

Multiple studies have shown that breathing is one of the most important factors of a good night of sleep. A slow breathing rhythm can induce a person to sleep in minutes; your heart rate decreases and you’ll become relaxed in minimal time [1] [2]. Multiple (sleep) experts, called somnologists, have helped us develop Somnox [3]. They studied the relationship between sleep and breathing. They found that the amygdala in the brain is important for how we feel (emotion). It is found that breathing is of great influence on the amygdala and can therefor influence your peace of mind [4]. Get ready to fall asleep more easily and wake up more energized!

Sleeping is important

Sleep is the basis for a good overall health. A good night of sleep is a must to have good day. Somnox will assure that everyone gets the chance of having that perfect night of sleep.

The Team

Who are the hands and brains behind Somnox? We are four students of the TU Delft from different faculties: one Industrial Designer, one Mechanical Engineer and two Software Engineers. For our minor we all chose a challenging and very interesting minor: Robotics. In this minor we developed as a multidisciplinary team a robot, conceived by ourselves: Somnox.

Somnox is still a prototype at the moment. For the development of Somnox we are looking for partners or investors. Is your company or are you interested in investing in Somnox or maybe becoming a partner of Somnox, contact us by clicking here.


EIT Health Launchlab
Somnox is selected to participate in the EIT Health Launchlab! In this launchlab, provided by EIT Health, we will dedicate 8 weeks fully on Somnox to dive in the European market. We will visit Munich, Lyon, Grenoble, Stockholm and Uppsala.

Innovation with the TU Delft
We, the members of team Somnox, are students from the TU Delft and under guidance of their expertise Somnox was developed. The pillars guiding everyone associated with the TU Delft are:

  • Respect
  • Integrity
  • Expertise
  • Involvement
  • Transparency

YES!Delft Tech Incubator 

After succesfully completing the EIT Health LaunchLab we are now part of the Incubation Programme. We even have our office within the YES!Delft. YES!Delft (high-tech incubator) supports us with lots of expertise, advice and a network to make sure we become the leading firm in the sleep-aid industry.
