Abstract

The increasing availability of GPS-enabled mobile devices canutilize position to provide a safer tracked environment allowing vulnerablepeople to continue with their daily activities, as much as possible. This paperinvestigates the technology options for alert escalation. The aim is to provide asafety net, without triggering unnecessary alarms. The escalation procedureinvolves initial speech alert to the user, then a speech and vibrate alert to theuser as a reminder; this is followed by a text message to an identified carer ifthe user has not entered the safe zone. Parameters for alert escalation can betuned to individual circumstances. The user can seek help at any time by gettingdirections from the current position to home or by calling a carer. We report ona small technical evaluation (n=6) of the development.
