Atlas SOS provides users of Android and iPhone smartphones with both SOS and Man Down alarm activation. SOS/Emergency facilities can be easily accessed from an on-screen button, power button press sequence, dedicated SOS button on Ecom/Sonim, MX, BX, Hytera, Samsung Xcover, and many other rugged smartphones and via the Atlas SOS+ Keyfob.
Positioning of a lone worker is via GPS and/or WiFi, Beacon giving both outdoor and indoor location services. Alarms can be delivered via GSM(SMS &Voice), GPRS, 3G, 4G, 5G and/or WiFi giving users the best available coverage.
TPA (Timed Personal Alert) check-in timer features are built-in. TPA continues to work even when there is no mobile coverage. With a timer running, the user can receive up to 4 reminders of the pending expiry. Users can extend or cancel the timer at any point. If the TPA expires an alarm is automatically activated.
True Man Down differs significantly from what is commonly known as “Fall Detection”. Fall Detection is a low cost and mostly inaccurate method of providing Man Down Detection. It requires that a user free falls from at least 1m and then suddenly comes to a stop.
In the more common event of illness or injury a person generally does not suddenly fall to the ground but passes through stages of decent before finally resting on the ground thus preventing a Fall Detection. True Man Down detects this action by monitoring the angle of the user/device and whether it is in motion or not. If a user is incapacitated the device will be beyond the threshold angle and a Man Down detection occurs.
True Man Down Detection
To enhance this detection, a feature called Motion Reset can also be used to reset the Man Down detection if the device/user is still moving enough while in the Man Down position. This is very useful for users whose duties require them to lie down to perform inspections or other tasks.
When a True Man Down Detection event occurs, the user is presented with a warning sound and/or vibration for a period. If the user/device returns to the normal operating position or a Motion Reset occurs the pre-warning sound and/or vibration automatically stops, and an alarm is not sent. Fall Detection devices require interaction with the user because they cannot detect a return to normal condition and can become cumbersome to their users.
