Enhanced Positioning for Emergency and Care Systems: MODIS


TeleConsult Austria combines positioning systems with information and communication services. One of their projects is the emergency and care system MODIS®. In case of an accident or emergency the carrier can send a help-signal to his relatives or the rescue service by only pushing a button. Wireless LAN localisation complements the existing GPS-based positioning system which is only working properly in open spaces, not in the narrow streets of city centers or indoors like in subways.
