Sensara, an app that converts smartphones into remote has raised Rs 5 crore from Gana Yantrika Systems and Google India cofounder Lalitesh Katragadda to grow its company and add more products to its portfolio. “Only a few investors in India can understand the kind of breakthroughs we’ve achieved at Sensara.
We’ve started aggregating them. Our board meetings are great fun,” said CEO Bharat Kumar Mohan. Sensara’s technology adds a layer of abstraction that allows TV viewers to directly key in terms such as “English action movie” instead of remembering and keying in the channel number. The company maintains a real-time database that maps channels to the different numbers that set top boxes have assigned it to. Gana Yantrika, which led the investement, is the holding company of Omnesys Technologies (which was acquired by Thomson Reuters in 2013).
