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.

Problem Statement "Stay Together with your loved ones 24/7"
Problem Statement "Stay Together with your loved ones 24/7"

Brief Description  

An all-in-one, affordable and, simple to use solution designed to take care of loved ones who are prone to wandering or need support from time to time.  

Stay Together with LocateMotion is proud to present an all-in-one affordable feature-loaded IoT solution initially in Canada and then expanded to global reach. In our solution we provide, 

iOS and Android app, 3G/4G connectivity, GPS low power smartwatch, 30-day money back guarantee and after-sales support.  

The key differentiation is that this is ONLY complete out of box and most affordable solution in the market today (FIRST GEN it is an IoT smartwatch but in future NEXT GEN would be any low powered Internet of things IoT devise like a pendant, wallet card etc.,) which has a Global IoT Nano-SIM or e-SIM (not regular wireless) that connects with the LocateMotion application 24/7 as long as it has cellular, Wifi or GPS coverage and does talk, track and care your loved ones. 

This means it uses less power and data than a regular smartphone (3 days discharge with FIRST GEN solution while our SECOND GEN will be much smaller in size and will have 3-6 months discharge life and other capabilities). It will also have the capability to measure vital health stats like EKG, Sugar level etc., to ensure proactive health monitoring

Our Mission Statement - Affordable all in one solution "Stay Together" — Anytime & Anywhere  

Here is a one-page picture which explains the overall solution in a simple manner. Click below or view the photo gallery for a more detailed prototype video.

Our Team, Story, and Vision  

LocateMotion came to life through a stressful situation which our founder Nauman experienced, a situation familiar to many caregivers around the world. When he lost his son at the mall for the second time, he became restless and knew that there needed to be an easier way to get in touch with his son when he wanders. 

Listen to Nauman tell his reason for starting LocateMotion . . .  

Whether it be a child who gets easily distracted and lost or senior showing signs of cognition loss and symptoms of Alzheimer’s or Dementia, there needs to be a way to stay together. 

Knowing that coping with these symptoms can be challenging, we developed an affordable all in one intuitive solution for families that support members who may have a disability. Our GPS & 3G/4G Wireless smartwatch and app allows families and caregivers to "stay together" with a loved one. 

This “simple to use” one touch solution also provides your loved ones with the confidence, self-esteem, and peace of mind of knowing that assistance is always just a quick click away.

Our management and advisory board mission is challenging, but our vision is simple.

We will continually develop and design cutting edge solutions to help you maintain constant communication and care for your loved ones suffering from Autism, Alzheimer’s, or Dementia. 

Caregivers Also Need Support 

Adults often serve as caregivers for aging parents and must monitor their loved ones’ health and independence. Evaluating the situation from a caregiver’s perspective, they have a lot of things to worry about: • Are parents safe at home? • Are they just one click away to connecting in case of emergency? • Do they know how to get in touch if they get lost? • Are they moving around and taking care of themselves? 

Sounds overwhelming . . . Right? LocateMotion is on a global mission to help us all Stay Together. 

Vision Statement: It is “The Find Company” of the future that serves as a helping hand to those taking care of people, pets and things. In our journey (phase 1 focused on wandering people), we identified a major problem for caregivers. Their loved ones can Wander, and losing track of those with Alzheimer’s, Dementia or Autism is a common fear. 

We asked ourselves, “What’s worse . . . Fear or Wandering?” 

Clearly, wandering is not necessarily harmful if it occurs in a safe and controlled environment. However, wandering can pose serious safety issues and sometimes puts loved ones in life-threatening situations.

Vision 2020
Vision 2020

With this vision, LocateMotion began looking for a convenient all-in-one easy to use, yet affordable solution that provides basic features for those most vulnerable. LocateMotion GPS and 3G/4G wireless wearable watch and app help locate, see, talk, monitor, geofence, and offers health and wellness support 24/7 to your loved one in real time, anytime and anywhere. solution explained In our journey and as caregivers ourselves, we identified wandering or getting lost as a common fear among caregivers. 

In fact, 3 out of 5 people with Alzheimer’s, Dementia or Autism wander, and some never return. Close to 700,000 went missing in the U.S. alone in a single year. This is a sobering reminder of why staying together is essential to a caregiver's role and stress-filled responsibilities.

Watch this video and website for details on the amazing support, FAQs, 24/7 chat, 1800 number we are offering even for trial launch. 

Our Competitive Advantage

There are three things that stand out for us as compared to our competition besides the strength, experience, and expertise of our management and advisory team (see gallery slide for more detail comparison with some of existing GPS/GSM solutions)

 1. All in one (out of box) most affordable price with ultimate convenience and an end to end solution which includes connectivity via GPS, Canadian / US 3G/4G wireless and existing / future low data usage / longer battery options (no solution comes close to our feature set and price range offered) - see www.locatemotion.com for trial pricing of prototype solution at heavy discounted price. 

2. Data Assurance with the privacy of your data (location, health etc.,) within North America - the server and data is hosted in North America and follows HIPAA and security regulations - the website is also SSL encrypted 

3. Technical after sales support with lifetime warranty to help you with any questions via chat email, FAQs, 1-800 number and social media responses. 

And finally, your support matters to all of us and every contribution counts 

The funding we raise at Kick starter will be used to 

Where will we use these pledges

1. Test the trial prototype with actual deserving patients and caregivers to solicit feedback/improvements 

 2. Use feedback and make product improvements to the trail solution (like improving features, look and feel, glitches etc.,) 

 3. And finally, do controlled market MVP (minimum viable product) launch in Canada and US with potentially global reach in the year 2018 

We then plan to raise Angel & VC Investment for moving the phase 2 (global, extend use cases etc.,) of this solution. It’s surprisingly expensive to produce just one of something. 

Your pledge will help cover the initial costs of technology and device development. Additionally, the cost of manufacturing only becomes feasible when we meet the minimum order requirements for our various vendors. This means that we must have a certain number of LocateMotion solution sold before we can begin the process of manufacturing them. 

In the end - Thank you from all of us here at LocateMotion for your consideration 

Risks and challenges

The LocateMotion project is primarily a software and platform company but will require managing device manufacturers and solution integration providers initially to build a brand and to deliver the final solution (hardware plus software). In near future with the spike in IoT low powered devices expected in 2018 with open standards - we expect this to be reduced (our dependency on hardware).

Our parent company, MarkiTech has experience dealing with these potential challenges from our previous start-up venture and over 45+ successful product launches among partners like: Your Doctors Online (https://yourdoctors.online/), which experienced some launch delays, because of the nature of ambiguity associated with healthcare related products and services.
