Un dispositif de positionnement dans une montre-bracelet utilise la technologie M2M Cinterion de Gemalto pour aider à protéger les personnes atteintes d’autisme ou de la maladie d'Alzheimer

Gemalto (Euronext NL 0000400653 GTO), le leader mondial de la sécurité numérique, annonce que sa technologie M2M Cinterion® a été intégrée dans le dispositif de localisation individuelle (DLI) GPS innovant TRiLOC™ utilisé pour localiser des personnes souffrant de maladies de type autisme (MTA), de démence ou de la maladie d’Alzheimer. La solution de montre-bracelet, facile à porter, utilise un module Cinterion ultrafin pour permettre des communications cellulaires globales 24H/24 et 7J/7, ainsi qu'un suivi par GPS. Le dispositif TRiLOC aide les soignants à localiser et à protéger les personnes ayant des besoins spéciaux tout en réduisant la nécessité d’une surveillance physique constante. Au niveau mondial, on compte plus de 30 millions d’individus souffrant d’autisme ou de la maladie d'Alzheimer et plus de 60 millions de soignants qui cherchent des solutions pour améliorer leur indépendance et leur sécurité1.

Développé par iLOC Technologies, le DLI TRiLOC intègre le module M2M Cinterion PHS8 de Gemalto pour fournir simultanément des communications données et vocales haute vitesse et des données de localisation GPS. La solution de Gemalto transmet la localisation précise d’un individu au téléphone portable ou à l'ordinateur du soignant désigné tout en permettant des appels vocaux bidirectionnels mains libres lorsque cela est nécessaire. Une fonctionnalité d’écoute à distance permet aux soignants de détecter lorsqu’une aide immédiate est requise ; par ailleurs, le porteur a accès à un bouton SOS en cas d’urgence. Communiquant avec Bluetooth™ 4.0, le DLI TRiLOC peut être synchronisé avec les appareils de santé mobile, les équipements domestiques intelligents et les solutions de sécurité pour envoyer aux soignants des mises à jour relatives au statut du porteur. Un accessoire optionnel porté par les soignants offre la détection de proximité et la fonction modem électronique permettant l’envoi immédiat de messages écrits et d’alarmes audio si un individu s’éloigne trop. De plus, une alerte peut être envoyée lorsque la sangle verrouillable du dispositif est manipulée. La technologie avancée de gestion de l’alimentation M2M Cinterion de Gemalto prolonge l’autonomie de la batterie du dispositif, permettant ainsi une plus longue durée de fonctionnement entre 2 recharges.

« Le dispositif de localisation individuelle GPS TRiLOC est le fruit de deux années de recherche et de nombreuses discussions avec des associations de soignants et des parents d’enfants atteints de MTA », a déclaré Tony Fama, Président et PDG d’iLOC et père d’un enfant atteint d’une MTA. « TRiLOC procure à mon fils davantage d’autonomie et réduit le besoin d’une surveillance constante. Grâce à l’accessoire offrant la fonction modem, les familles et les soignants peuvent prévoir des sorties dans les musées, les centres commerciaux et même les parcs de loisirs fréquentés sans avoir à subir l’énorme stress lié au risque de vagabondage de l’individu ».

« C’est très gratifiant de voir notre technologie améliorer véritablement la vie des personnes ayant des besoins spéciaux, dans ce cas celles susceptibles de se perdre », a déclaré Norbert Muhrer, Vice-président directeur de Gemalto M2M. « Nos efforts de miniaturisation nous ont permis de créer le module le plus mince que nous ayons jamais produit, le Cinterion PHS8, qui est suffisamment petit et puissant pour offrir cette montre-bracelet innovante. Grâce à cette solution, Gemalto contribue à nouveau à l’amélioration de la sécurité et du confort pour les citoyens en tirant pleinement profit du potentiel du monde des communications sans fil et du monde numérique qui nous entourent ».

Blockchain. A day doesn’t seem to go by without seeing articles and discussions about the technology. According to PwC executive Seamus Cushley, approximately $1.4B has been invested in blockchain just last year. In Gartner’s recent hype cycle for emerging technologies, blockchain is approaching the peak. It is considered by Gartner as one of the ‘Key platform-enabling technologies to track.’ While there is a lot of ‘hype vs reality’ discussions going on, there is no arguing that blockchain is b...

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
Leading companies, from the Global Fortune 500 to the smallest companies, are adopting hybrid cloud as the path to business advantage. Hybrid cloud depends on cloud services and on-premises infrastructure working in unison. Successful implementations require new levels of data mobility, enabled by an automated and seamless flow across on-premises and cloud resources. In his general session at 21st Cloud Expo, Greg Tevis, an IBM Storage Software Technical Strategist and Customer Solution Architec...

The need for greater agility and scalability necessitated the digital transformation in the form of following equation: monolithic to microservices to serverless architecture (FaaS). To keep up with the cut-throat competition, the organisations need to update their technology stack to make software development their differentiating factor. Thus microservices architecture emerged as a potential method to provide development teams with greater flexibility and other advantages, such as the abili...
The use of containers by developers -- and now increasingly IT operators -- has grown from infatuation to deep and abiding love. But as with any long-term affair, the honeymoon soon leads to needing to live well together ... and maybe even getting some relationship help along the way. And so it goes with container orchestration and automation solutions, which are rapidly emerging as the means to maintain the bliss between rapid container adoption and broad container use among multiple cloud host...

Imagine if you will, a retail floor so densely packed with sensors that they can pick up the movements of insects scurrying across a store aisle. Or a component of a piece of factory equipment so well-instrumented that its digital twin provides resolution down to the micrometer.
The cloud era has reached the stage where it is no longer a question of whether a company should migrate, but when. Enterprises have embraced the outsourcing of where their various applications are stored and who manages them, saving significant investment along the way. Plus, the cloud has become a defining competitive edge. Companies that fail to successfully adapt risk failure. The media, of course, continues to extol the virtues of the cloud, including how easy it is to get there. Migrating...
