The Internet of Things and machine-to-machine technology can together make a tangible difference in people’s lives, especially the elderly and people in need.
Position Logic, a RACO Wireless company and a provider of B2B location-based services, has teamed with Zorah, a company that specializes in technology solutions that enhance the personal safety of the elderly and people with special needs.
Through this agreement, Position Logic has given elder care workers and family members a powerful assistant through its integration of Zorah’s POMCell device with a GPS tracking platform. According to the company, the combination of technologies enable real-time location tracking, alert notifications, panic button functionality, and a host of other features, bringing vital location-based features to the growing elder-care industry.
“With extended lifespans and a rapidly-aging population, more and more family members and long-term care facilities need tracking solutions that can provide both safety and peace of mind,” Felix Lluberes, president of Location-Based Services and co-founder at Position Logic, said in a statement.
Lluberes also said that by integrating the POMCell onto Position Logic’s platform, the company can help keep those who need it safe and make their life a little less stressful.
The PomCell is a comprehensive cell phone that combines wireless technologies like GPS, Cellular, RFID, and a combination of sensors with Internet monitoring. The device can receive calls, is small enough to be carried in a pocket or even worn as a pendant. The Position Logic platform is configured to send alerts for a number of events.
Back in July, M2M enabler RACO Wireless completed the acquisition of Position Logic. RACO Wireless and Position Logic have been focusing since then on their shared goal of removing the barriers to success in the M2M space and accelerating the efforts to make the Internet of Things a reality.
