We found it very rewarding when we were commissioned to carry out an application that can save many lives for a large security company installed in Mexico.
Man-Down consists of software that, by making the most of the sensors installed on portable devices (watches, mobile phones, heart rate monitors, ...), is capable of detecting by means of the application of an own algorithm, when a body is shot down or falls to the ground at high speed, generating an alarm in a control center that is accompanied by the geolocation coordinates of the person on whom an alert or danger situation has been detected. It is an accurate software, which has proved its effectiveness in a percentage of success practically 100% thanks to a first phase of human intervention for the classification of hits or false alarms.
The applications of this program are endless, from its use with soldiers in combat, to the simple control of elderly people in nursing homes.
We are optimistic. We believe in the idea that it becomes a regular software in people's lives thanks to the lower cost of devices and the growth of use of wearables equipment, and we will always be proud that CEDESA has been entrusted with a task of such responsibility.
