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.“

2015 predictions circa 1970: houses anticipate our needs and adapt, city infrastructure is citizen and situation aware, office buildings identify and preprocess you. Today smart buildings have no such collective conscience, no shared set of fundamental services to identify, predict and synchronize around us. LiveSpace and M2Mi are changing that. LiveSpace Smart Environment devices deliver over the M2Mi IoT Platform real time presence, awareness and intent analytics as a service to local connected devices. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Sarah Cooper, VP Business of Development at M2Mi, will d...
The Industrial Internet revolution is now underway, enabled by connected machines and billions of devices that communicate and collaborate. The massive amounts of Big Data requiring real-time analysis is flooding legacy IT systems and giving way to cloud environments that can handle the unpredictable workloads. Yet many barriers remain until we can fully realize the opportunities and benefits from the convergence of machines and devices with Big Data and the cloud, including interoperability, data security and privacy.
Explosive growth in connected devices. Enormous amounts of data for collection and analysis. Critical use of data for split-second decision making and actionable information. All three are factors in making the Internet of Things a reality. Yet, any one factor would have an IT organization pondering its infrastructure strategy. How should your organization enhance its IT framework to enable an Internet of Things implementation? In this session, James Kirkland, Red Hat's Chief Architect for the Internet of Things and Intelligent Systems, will describe how to revolutionize your architecture and...
We’re entering a new era of computing technology that many are calling the Internet of Things (IoT). Machine to machine, machine to infrastructure, machine to environment, the Internet of Everything, the Internet of Intelligent Things, intelligent systems – call it what you want, but it’s happening, and its potential is huge. IoT is comprised of smart machines interacting and communicating with other machines, objects, environments and infrastructures. As a result, huge volumes of data are being generated, and that data is being processed into useful actions that can “command and control” thi...
The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, discussed single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series data. By focusing on enterprise applications and the data center, he will use OpenTSDB as an example t...
All major researchers estimate there will be tens of billions devices - computers, smartphones, tablets, and sensors - connected to the Internet by 2020. This number will continue to grow at a rapid pace for the next several decades. With major technology companies and startups seriously embracing IoT strategies, now is the perfect time to attend @ThingsExpo, June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City. Learn what is going on, contribute to the discussions, and ensure that your enterprise is as "IoT-Ready" as it can be
Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.
We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) i...

Thanks to widespread Internet adoption and more than 10 billion connected devices around the world, companies became more excited than ever about the Internet of Things in 2014. Add in the hype around Google Glass and the Nest Thermostat, and nearly every business, including those from traditionally low-tech industries, wanted in. But despite the buzz, some very real business questions emerged – mainly, not if a device can be connected, or even when, but why? Why does connecting to the cloud create greater value for the user? Why do connected features improve the overall experience? And why do...

The Internet of Things is a misnomer. That implies that everything is on the Internet, and that simply should not be - especially for things that are blurring the line between medical devices that stimulate like a pacemaker and quantified self-sensors like a pedometer or pulse tracker. The mesh of things that we manage must be segmented into zones of trust for sensing data, transmitting data, receiving command and control administrative changes, and peer-to-peer mesh messaging. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Bagnulo, Solution Architect / Software Engineer at SOA Software, focused on desi...
The multi-trillion economic opportunity around the "Internet of Things" (IoT) is emerging as the hottest topic for investors in 2015. As we connect the physical world with information technology, data from actions, processes and the environment can increase sales, improve efficiencies, automate daily activities and minimize risk. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ed Maguire, Senior Analyst at CLSA Americas, will describe what is new and different about IoT, explore financial, technological and real-world impact across consumer and business use cases. Why now? Significant corporate and venture...
While great strides have been made relative to the video aspects of remote collaboration, audio technology has basically stagnated. Typically all audio is mixed to a single monaural stream and emanates from a single point, such as a speakerphone or a speaker associated with a video monitor. This leads to confusion and lack of understanding among participants especially regarding who is actually speaking. Spatial teleconferencing introduces the concept of acoustic spatial separation between conference participants in three dimensional space. This has been shown to significantly improve comprehe...
Today’s enterprise is being driven by disruptive competitive and human capital requirements to provide enterprise application access through not only desktops, but also mobile devices.
