Speedentity – The Alert And Protection Community

A web-based service which helps the personal early alert and protection in case of an emergency.

What is it?

• Speedentity, with its Rescue Page, is a web base service which helps the personal early alert and protection in case of an emergency
• Each member of the Speedentity community receives his own SUN, a particular and unique universal number (one different SUN for each user) during the registration process
• The SUN can be also personalized therefore, for the UNICEF-Speedentity project, there would be the possibility to create a SUN with a UNICEF code
• The SUN has a global recognition and its advantage is that it has no geographical barriers, no legal restrictions and no governmental constrains
• The SUN is visible on user’s Speedentity customizable items such as: wristbands (low-tech solution), wristband with RFID Technology (mid-tech solution for big mass people identification and also suitable for census system), SWTT (Speedentity Wearable Technology Tracker, high-tech solution with GPS positioning, Geo-Fence system, panic button via satellite communication, solar panel charger to reload the battery,…), cards and tri-cards, caps, plastic tags, fabric stickers etc. that can help with the user identification.
• The Sun enables Speedentity members to be identifiable, through the Rescue Page, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, anywhere in the world via the internet
• Rescuers (anyone in the world, Speedentity users and not users) can quickly access/provide relevant information on the identity, health status and contact phone numbers of the user thus helping to facilitate their prompt rescue.

How is it used?

• SUN customized items are worn by the users and, most of them, don’t need any electronic device, no electricity and no maintenance (except the SWTT – High-Tech solution)
• The SUN customized items have been especially developed and thought to be used and worn under difficult/extreme conditions
• The SUN is visible on user’s Speedentity Card customizable items such as wristbands, wristband with RFID Technology, SWTT (Speedentity Wearable Technology Tracker), cards and tri-cards, caps, plastic tags, fabric stickers etc. that can help with identification.
• For “in develping” countries we foreseen Low-Tech and Mid-Tech (wristband with RFID Technology) wearables
• For industrialized countries we focus on a special technology wristband/watch (SWTT) in collaboration with an Italian designer containing all the vital information of the user on it
• We think that, having the necessary resources, the SWTT could be also introduce to “in developing” countries

What technologies does it incorporate?

• For “in developing” countries, we foresee customizable Low-Tech and Mid-Tech items such as wristbands, wristband with RFID technology,caps, plastic tags, fabric stickers etc. where no electronic supply is needed.
RFID tags could be integrated with following benefits: low cost, data can be read very fast for large masses and with low cost data reading machines
• For “industrialized” countries the wristband (SWTT) will incorporate data capture/transmission, GPS positioning, Geo-fence system, Panic button,…
• Today Speedentity already developed and launched two App’s (iOS and Android) which also offer the Personal GPS Tracking using a mobile device (https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/speedentity/id509158995?mt=8 ; https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.speedentityapp.Speedentity&hl=en )

How does it work?

• User starts with an easy All-in-1-CLICK REGISTRATION on the website
• During the registration process, the user receives his/her personal SUN (Speedentity Universal Numer) which can be also customized
• The user will complete his/her Rescue Page filling his/he Basic Information (personal information), the Contact Alert Phone Numbers (the numbers to call in case of an emergency) and the Health Information (such as health insurance, blood type, diseases, allergies, special requirements, medication needed, clinical courses, rare diseases, etc.
• In case of an emergency or if the user will go to an hospital or to the doctor, through his/her SUN, he/she will be identified worldwide thanks to the Rescue Page and all his/her Personal, Contact and Health Information will be available at a glance.
• In order to remember or to show his/her SUN, the user can wear SUN customized wearables items
• SUN customized items are worn by the users and, most of them, don’t need any electronic device: no electricity and no maintenance , work anywhere, in all weather conditions
• The SUN customized items have been especially developed and thought to be used and worn under difficult/extreme conditions(cold, hot, sun, rain, snow), ultra durable, skin friendly
• The SUN is visible on user’s Speedentity customizable items such as wristbands, wristband with RFID technology, SWTT (Speedentity Wearable Technology Tracker), cards and tri-cards, caps, plastic tags, fabric stickers etc. that can help with identification.
• For “in developing” countries, we foresee customizable Low-Tech and Mid-Tech items such as wristbands, wristband with RFID technology,caps, plastic tags, fabric stickers etc. where no electronic supply is needed.
• For industrialized countries we are developing a special technology wristband/watch (SWTT) in collaboration with an EU Design Studio, containing all the vital information of the user on it – we believe in less-is-more and this device will be multi function, integrating also the SUN number, avoiding the user to wear multiple bracelets
• We think that, having the necessary resources, the SWTT could be also introduce to “in developing” countries too.

Who uses it?

• Every adult (woman, man) child, elderly who doesn’t have an early alert and protection system available
• Any person who lives in poor health environment and/or dangerous situation
• People who needs to create a protection community independently from the local/national security institutions
• Access will be available to authorities (police, hospitals, support organizations,…) and to the community people leaving with and/or around the user.

Why does it help?

• The Rescue Page will represent a global personal early alert and protection platform for every person living in a remote/poor/dangerous location/country
• Every Speedentity user can be recognized and rescued anytime and everywhere
• Every person independently from the Speedentity status (user or not user) can be a potential rescuer
• In case of an emergency all vital information of the Speedentity user will be available for his/her own rescue
• The platform will be especially useful in case of: injury/accident, (rare) diseases, earthquake, tsunami, civil war, kidnapping, getting lost, emergency rescue and hospitalization,…
