What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

Patent + Intelligent + Novel

The U.S. Patent Office has granted us with a utility patent on February, 2016 (United States Patent Application No. 14/743,872, PERSONAL SAFETY TRACKING USING AN APPARATUS COMPRISING MULTIPLE SENSORS)

 

    

 

 

 

    

    

    

        

    

The dristee project has been in development for the past three years. With teams spanning several continents, and managed by Dee herself.

After many prototypes, countless ideas, and plenty of refinements, the dristee is now a product ready to go live. During this time, we have fulfilled design demands, answered technological challenges and secured comprehensive patenting. 


The first prototypes (V-1) validated key features such as GPS tracking, geo-fencing, as well as the sensors for both accelerometer and water hazard detection. These hardware sensors are combined with intelligent software to create a solution best suited for childcare facilities, schools and facilities for the aging or infirm. While this device is fully functional and tested for many months, the design was lacking refinement. 


Issues plagued use of size and comfort. Also waterproofing and battery power consumption of the device contended to be very challenging. Once we reached the extent of what V-1 could teach us, we partnered with ANDesign to create an updated design, taking into consideration all of the comforts and functionality that V-1 was missing. 



ANDesign’s team of designers and engineers were able to help us bring to life an attractive design, with comfort and ease of use as top priorities. This process also allowed us to refine key component selections, like battery, Sensors, and GSM/ GPS chipsets and antennas. ANDesign’s team has an extensive background in developing GPS watches, and other complex wearables, as well as design for manufacturing process.


We are very happy with the Design of the V-2 dristee and hope that you and your loved ones are too! design, with comfort and ease of use as top priorities. 

 

 

 

 A note from Dee,

In India, village security was a function of communal awareness, connection and cooperation. In order to provide an equivalent safety net through technology, two issues had to be addressed.  

First, the specific needs, risks and dangers had to be identified and second, once recognized, technology had to be created to address these needs. For its part, technology had to provide an immediate and effective alerting system, precise information and quick communication to respond to the situation and effective integration both with families as well as the appropriate response teams available in the community.

Children can disappear, the elderly can wander and those with autism and special needs can be overlooked and thus effectively disregarded.

Motivated by the well-being of my own children as well as for all of the community’s vulnerable, I developed Dristee, a system-based product to meet the increasingly complex safety needs of coming generations.

For me, Dristee’s comprehensive design and wide range of features are both professionally and personally satisfying in answering the requests of my heart and conscience.

Be a part of my vision, be a part of Dristee.

Risks and challenges

What are some of the major ‘challenges’ in developing a product like dristee?

The device must not only dependably function but must invariably function to the highest standard. Back-up data and reports need to be generated to record and evaluate that data must be available.

The device must incorporate features to recognize and isolate false data.The functions of the device must complement each other, each adding to the overall picture.

At this point in time, the exacting design integrated into the product has matured enough in prototype versions that we can confidently feel we have met or exceeded the challenges listed above.

However, rest assured, as additional challenges may present themselves subscribers and users will be kept up to date on what those challenges are and how we intend to meet them.
