Schoolchildren Safety

PROBLEM

In 2020 Trackimo and one of top European personal security companies launched a school student safety project addressing child safety, whereabouts and emergency management.

It is imperative that schools and universities don't have a plan on how to deal with the threat of kidnapping, gun violence, cyberbullying and sexual exploitation.

SOLUTION

In 2020 Trackimo and one of top European personal security companies launched a school student safety project addressing child safety, whereabouts and emergency management.

HARDWARE

For this particular project we also implemented the latest indoor tracking technology, which allows accurate positioning inside schools, shopping malls, train stations, underground structures, etc. The technology leverages signal of unconsented WiFi networks to pre-map or hotmap the indoor environment of any premises and provide GPS-level accuracy (up to 5 m, indicating floor where supported by Google Maps) in locations with no GPS signal.
No beacons are required to operate.

SOFTWARE

Custom device firmware has been set to provide SOS-activation by triple-push (to avoid accidental activation) or double-tap (for unnoticed activation). Trackimo's platform and software applications serve as processing, operating and interface tools for the users. The security company's patrol switchboard is connected with the platform through an open API and ensures mutual connectivity, exchange of alarms and position data for the patrol guards to quickly arrive on the scene in case of emergency.
