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 ».

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 cre...

The web app is Agile. The REST API is Agile. The testing and planning are Agile. But alas, Data infrastructures certainly are not. Once an application matures, changing the shape or indexing scheme of data often forces at best a top down planning exercise and at worst includes schema changes which force downtime. The time has come for a new approach that fundamentally advances the agility of distributed data infrastructures. Come learn about a new solution to the problems faced by software orga...
