Ortungsgerät in Armbanduhr beruht auf Cinterion-M2M-Technologie von Gemalto zum Schutz von Menschen mit Autismus und Alzheimer

Gemalto (Euronext NL 0000400653 GTO), das weltweit führende Unternehmen auf dem Gebiet der digitalen Sicherheit, gibt bekannt, dass seine Technologie Cinterion® M2M in das innovative TRiLOC™ GPS Personal Locator Device (PLD) integriert wird, mit dem Menschen mit Autismus-Spektrum-Störung (Autism Spectrum Disorder, ASD), Demenz und Alzheimer lokalisiert werden können. Die angenehm zu tragende Armbanduhrlösung enthält ein ultraschmales Cinterion-Modul, das eine weltweite Kommunikation per Mobilfunk im 24-Stunden-Betrieb sowie eine Ortung mit GPS (Global Positioning System) ermöglicht. Das TRiLOC-Gerät unterstützt Pflegekräfte dabei, Menschen mit besonderem Betreuungsbedarf zu lokalisieren und zu schützen, sodass der Aufenthalt dieser Personen nicht ständig kontrolliert werden muss. Weltweit gibt es mehr als 30 Millionen Personen, die an Autismus oder Alzheimer leiden, und über 60 Millionen Pflegekräfte wünschen sich Lösungen, mit denen die Unabhängigkeit und Sicherheit dieser Menschen verbessert werden kann1.

Das von iLOC Technologies entwickelte TRiLOC PLD enthält das Modul Cinterion PHS8 M2M von Gemalto. Es liefert gleichzeitig Hochgeschwindigkeitsdaten und Sprachkommunikation sowie Ortungsdaten mithilfe von GPS. Die Lösung von Gemalto übermittelt den genauen Standort einer Person auf das Mobiltelefon oder den Computer einer bestimmten Pflegekraft, während, falls erforderlich, auch eine Zweiwege-Sprachkommunikation mit Freisprechfunktion über das Telefon möglich ist. Über eine entsprechende Funktion kann die Pflegekraft von einem anderen Standort aus mithören und so erkennen, ob unmittelbare Hilfe erforderlich ist, und der Träger des Geräts kann im Notfall eine SOS-Taste drücken. Das TRiLOC PLD kann über Bluetooth™ 4.0 mit mHealth-Geräten (mobile Geräte mit Gesundheitsanwendungen), intelligenten Hausgeräten und Sicherheitslösungen synchronisiert werden und Statusaktualisierungen an die Pflegekräfte senden. Optionales Zubehör für die Pflegekraft ermöglicht eine positionsspezifische Erkennung und elektronisches Tethering, das heißt, es werden sofort SMS und Audioalarme übermittelt, wenn eine Person sich zu weit weg bewegt. Außerdem kann ein Warnhinweis geschickt werden, wenn das fest am Körper gesicherte Bändchen manipuliert wird. Die erweiterte Energieverwaltungstechnologie Cinterion M2M von Gemalto verlängert die Akkulaufzeit für einen längeren Betrieb, bevor eine erneute Aufladung erforderlich ist.

„Wir haben den TRiLOC GPS Personal Locator entwickelt, nachdem wir zwei Jahre geforscht und intensive Gespräche mit Pflegeorganisationen und Eltern von Kindern mit ASD geführt hatten“, sagte Tony Fama, iLOC President, CEO und Vater eines Sohnes mit ASD. „TRiLOC verhilft meinem Sohn zu mehr Autonomie und er muss nicht mehr ständig unter Aufsicht gestellt werden. Mit der Tethering-Funktion können Familien oder Pflegekräfte Ausflüge zu Museen, Einkaufszentren und sogar gut besuchten Freizeitparks planen, ohne dem erheblichen Stress ausgesetzt zu sein, dass Personen weglaufen könnten.“

„Es freut uns wirklich sehr, dass unsere Technologie das Leben von Menschen mit besonderem Betreuungsbedarf wahrhaftig verändert, also in diesem Fall von Personen, die man leicht aus den Augen verlieren kann“, sagte Norbert Muhrer, Senior Vice President von Gemalto M2M. „Wir konnten aufgrund unserer Entwicklungsarbeiten zur Miniaturisierung nun das bisher schlankste Modul produzieren, das Cinterion PHS8, das klein und gleichzeitig ausreichend leistungsstark ist, um in diese innovative Armbanduhr integriert zu werden. Gemalto trägt mit dieser Lösung wieder einmal dazu bei, die Sicherheit und den Komfort von Bürgern zu verbessern, indem wir das gesamte Potenzial der drahtlosen und digitalen Welten heben.“

Even as cloud and managed services grow increasingly central to business strategy and performance, challenges remain. The biggest sticking point for companies seeking to capitalize on the cloud is data security. Keeping data safe is an issue in any computing environment, and it has been a focus since the earliest days of the cloud revolution. Understandably so: a lot can go wrong when you allow valuable information to live outside the firewall. Recent revelations about government snooping, along with a steady stream of well-publicized data breaches, only add to the uncertainty
Operational Hadoop and the Lambda Architecture for Streaming Data Apache Hadoop is emerging as a distributed platform for handling large and fast incoming streams of data. Predictive maintenance, supply chain optimization, and Internet-of-Things analysis are examples where Hadoop provides the scalable storage, processing, and analytics platform to gain meaningful insights from granular data that is typically only valuable from a large-scale, aggregate view. One architecture useful for capturing and analyzing streaming data is the Lambda Architecture, representing a model of how to analyze rea...

Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs) are increasing at an unprecedented rate. The threat landscape of today is drastically different than just a few years ago. Attacks are much more organized and sophisticated. They are harder to detect and even harder to anticipate. In the foreseeable future it's going to get a whole lot harder. Everything you know today will change. Keeping up with this changing landscape is already a daunting task. Your organization needs to use the latest tools, methods and expertise to guard against those threats. But will that be enough? In the foreseeable future attacks w...

The Workspace-as-a-Service (WaaS) market will grow to $6.4B by 2018. In his session at 16th Cloud Expo, Seth Bostock, CEO of IndependenceIT, will begin by walking the audience through the evolution of Workspace as-a-Service, where it is now vs. where it going. To look beyond the desktop we must understand exactly what WaaS is, who the users are, and where it is going in the future. IT departments, ISVs and service providers must look to workflow and automation capabilities to adapt to growing demand and the rapidly changing workspace model.

PubNub on Monday has announced that it is partnering with IBM to bring its sophisticated real-time data streaming and messaging capabilities to Bluemix, IBM’s cloud development platform. “Today’s app and connected devices require an always-on connection, but building a secure, scalable solution from the ground up is time consuming, resource intensive, and error-prone,” said Todd Greene, CEO of PubNub. “PubNub enables web, mobile and IoT developers building apps on IBM Bluemix to quickly add scalable realtime functionality with minimal effort and cost.”
Sensor-enabled things are becoming more commonplace, precursors to a larger and more complex framework that most consider the ultimate promise of the IoT: things connecting, interacting, sharing, storing, and over time perhaps learning and predicting based on habits, behaviors, location, preferences, purchases and more. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Tom Wesselman, Director of Communications Ecosystem Architecture at Plantronics, will examine the still nascent IoT as it is coalescing, including what it is today, what it might ultimately be, the role of wearable tech, and technology gaps stil...
With several hundred implementations of IoT-enabled solutions in the past 12 months alone, this session will focus on experience over the art of the possible. Many can only imagine the most advanced telematics platform ever deployed, supporting millions of customers, producing tens of thousands events or GBs per trip, and hundreds of TBs per month. With the ability to support a billion sensor events per second, over 30PB of warm data for analytics, and hundreds of PBs for an data analytics archive, in his session at @ThingsExpo, Jim Kaskade, Vice President and General Manager, Big Data & Ana...
In the consumer IoT, everything is new, and the IT world of bits and bytes holds sway. But industrial and commercial realms encompass operational technology (OT) that has been around for 25 or 50 years. This grittier, pre-IP, more hands-on world has much to gain from Industrial IoT (IIoT) applications and principles. But adding sensors and wireless connectivity won’t work in environments that demand unwavering reliability and performance. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ron Sege, CEO of Echelon, will discuss how as enterprise IT embraces other IoT-related technology trends, enterprises with i...
When it comes to the Internet of Things, hooking up will get you only so far. If you want customers to commit, you need to go beyond simply connecting products. You need to use the devices themselves to transform how you engage with every customer and how you manage the entire product lifecycle.
