This project will have two main work packages:

  1. System Development

    The system will be developed, and the system will be integrated into the viewing platform software.

  2. Testing and demonstration

    The system will be tested in a controlled environment, and will be debugged and certified. This will allow a fully-functioning demo system to be delivered to us for field testing and training.

The main objectives of this project regard the development of a system which will allow emergency calls to be made when mobile phone service is unavailable, and will have the functionality to place an emergency call when a fall is detected.

The delivery of the above objectives, within budget and within agreed timelines, as is reasonable depending on the knowledge at this stage of the development phase.

The project will be managed within SPEN applying due diligence and best practices where appropriate.

The staged outcomes will include reports and specifications available for other licensees.
