While the previous RFID watch doesn’t really do what we talked about in an earlier post, this one does.
CPS (Cambridge Positioning Systems Ltd) and Xion announced plans to collaborate on the development of a new wristwatch-based child safety communicator and locator, so its pretty far from the prototype stage right now.
Named the Sentinel Watch, it will be based on a tri-band GSM engine and consistently deliver 100m accuracy in urban, suburban and rural areas.
In addition the Watch can be tracked and located indoors and metal framed buildings.
Other features include:
- parent/child communication via SMS/MMS
- a warning for parents if the child moves outside a designated or defined area
- a panic button which sends an immediate alert message to the parent
- security clasp and security strap the alert the parent when the watch is removed without authorisation
