CARL SML (Simple Mobile Locator) is used to trace people in distress by locating their smart phone through GPS-technology. It is a web based service which is part of our communications platform CARL (Call and Rescue link).
When a person call in to a emergency service center the signal from his or her phone can be traced with this device through GPS-technology and the person can thereby be located and saved by the rescue staff. This service requires no pre installed applications in the phone of the person in need and all it takes to locate him or her is the signal from the phone and that he or she clicks on a link, which is sent via sms from the rescue center, to activate the platform service.
CARL IM (Instant Messenger) is based on the same principles as CARL SML but include much more as it is an modern web based messenger service which among other benefits makes it possible to communicate with people with hearing and speech difficulties.
As voice communication is not always the best way to communicate with a person in need of help, due to for instance hearing and speech difficulties.
This service enables an messenger interface suitable for exchanging images and live video from the scene, and the conversation between the person in need and the emergency service central can be kept up with using IP messaging and SMS when an internet connection is not available.
