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.

About

Our creation

We`ve developed a light and autonomous events management device to be used by the emergency systems. We have successfully tested it for the last eighteen months offering great utility for the emergency teams.

How Find&Rescue works

Attach your F&R to your body, to your clothes, the helmet, or to the bike (varying based on your F&R version) and turn it on. Once connected, the GPS system acquires the geo-location from GPS satellites and the delivery of information to the platform begins. For the current version, F&R needs GSM network.

Based on the frequency of delivery stablished, the F&R device sends its GPS location to the central management center and the Guardian Angel monitors each device’s position.

While you regularly develop your activity, your Guardian Angel will see nothing but your path.
While you regularly develop your activity, your Guardian Angel will see nothing but your path.

Alarms

During your adventure, you may stumble, fall or any suffer any other accident. F&R takes care of you and detects any sudden movement or fall. It can even detect if you are shaking or if you stay standing longer than usual (for example if you faint and fall to the floor). When this happens, F&R automatically sends an alarm to the management centre so the Guardian Angel has all the data and an accurate emergency call can be done. These alarms would also be sent over to user-defined phone numbers for each adventure.

In the new version there will be included a panic button that user can push to automatically send an emergency alarm. This alarm will be sent regardless of the identified status by the F&R (Panic button can be pushed at any time).

Alternative uses

F&R can be used on many different scenarios.

• When attached to a bike, car, motorcycle, scooter, or any other object that needs to be monitored, you can use F&R as an anti-theft system. For example, you could define an alarm when the object moves, shakes, or when it abandons a predefined area (fences system)

• When attached to an object with fixed inclination, F&R can be used as an alarm when the inclination changes.

• F&R can be used as a blow warning.

• For any situation where you need to detect location, movements, bumps and tilt changes

• To check if a path or route is being followed as defined, in time and in checkpoints.

• To control and automatically be notified about intermediate stops.

What are we getting into

We noticed that this technology is also very attractive and useful for outdoors activities lovers, like biking or hiking. Therefore, we want to adapt our system developed for professional environments into these other kind of leisure/high risk activities.

With extra help, our system will evolve into:

  • A universal device able to adapt to the different user’s needs and activity throughout specific complements.
  • A new box design suitable for bikers and hikers, water-resistant according to the protection measurement IP65/67.
  • New functionality options for this device according to this kind of activities, as multifunction button.
  • A new electronic design that suits this new box and functionalities. A native APP for IOS and Android so each user can manage its device
  • The development of the “Angel de la Guarda” platform that will allow users to notify and warn friends and family, clubs or any other institution in case of emergency.

Possibilities and new characteristics

The goal is to develop a device that can be used in different scenarios based on the requirements of all these kind of activities, using specific accessories for each of them.

In the “bikers” scenario, the specific accessory will attach the device in the rear side of the bike, simultaneously providing position light for the rest of vehicles. If the biker falls, the device will send the specific location on real time to the “Guardian Angel” and will white-flash so the victim is reachable.

In the “hikers” scenario, the accessory will be a pin that allows the device to be attachable to the backpack, clothes or belt. In case of an accident, the device will respond as noted before, providing location and a visual sign so it eases the rescue-team work.

In both cases, the system has a multifunctional button that activates the fuction of “fallen human” “help” or other needs.

Goals

To complete Find & Rescue System for Extreme Sports development according to the above-mentioned features and capabilities, we will need to raise 75.000€. But we would like to go a little further, if with your support we get more than that amount, we will extend the project with the following milestones:

150K €  - We will drive one step further by adding biosensors to the device, so you can check, both from the platform and the app, the breathing rhythm, hear rate and body temperature.

If an incident happens or the stablished limits are overreached, the device will send an alert message to the “Angel de La Guardia”

Any of you that have participated in the campaign financing are eligible for the acquisition of a biosensors pack for a reduced price

200K € - We will add a new security tool. Position and direction lights will be incorporated to the back of the bikers and visual signs that activate immediately when an accident happens will be attached to the hiker.

These accessories will be Wireless connected to the Find & Rescue device and their service is autonomous operating.

Any of you that have participated in the campaign can get the visual pack for a reduced price

Risks and challenges

In any development project may appear some difficulties that could delay or even force to cancel it. However, at EGEON we are fully confident in to complete the Find & Rescue System for Extreme Sports development successfully.

This is not an optimistic view of our capabilities, this statement is supported by the knowledge and professional experience of our team members, which have more than 20 years of experience in the development and manufacture of hardware. You just need to take a look at our website where you will find the products that we have successfully developed and marketed in recent months.

Despite all, we can bump with some difficulties such as delays in software, hardware or envelope mechanical system development, but none one of these incidence will stop the development and manufacturing because this is part of the market strategy EGEON Technology.
