When a loved one is in trouble, you want to be sure emergency services will be contacted immediately, especially when he or she is unable to call for help. However, the technology to detect and report accidents has been expensive and only available in a limited number of vehicles... until now.
HMN Guardian is a patent pending, portable emergency detection system that uses geospatial monitoring and emergency event/anomaly detection to detect and report accidents. Initially available as a Android app next on iPhone, Windows Mobile, and Blackberry apps (name Guardian-Lite) and subsequently as a stand-alone device (Guardian), the HMN systems combine GPS technology with multi-mode emergency events from micro-accelerometers and pressure sensors, as well as acoustic, voice and simple vocabulary recognition signatures. These revolutionary emergency detection systems are small, highly portable, easily installed and function independent of the driver or vehicle systems.
The Guardian-Lite app combined with your smart phone is the truly a mobile emergency detection and response system on the go!
Applying Military & Commercial Technologies to Protect Drivers and Their Passengers
The HMN Emergency Event Detection (nEED) System is the first to apply advanced highly portable capabilities to geospatial monitoring and event detection. Transitioning U.S. military geospatial and accelerometer related technologies designed for navigation and tracking/management of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles and nEED systems sense and transmit accident-related information to emergency operators so that they can dispatch the appropriate emergency life-saving personnel and equipment faster.
The nACN sensors system can determine the force and severity of a crash, direction of impact, probability of air bags deployed, multiple impacts and rollover, without having to equip the vehicle with additional sensor networks or tie into existing vehicle systems.
