Your kid will never get lost!

 


 

Axel is three years old and today it is a great day for him because he is going with his mother to his favourite place: the shopping mall. Axel likes this shopping mall because there is a large toy store. While Brigitte, his mother, is busy with a teller, Axel runs away and rushes to the toy store on his own. Five minutes later Axel is lost and his mother and him are looking for each other. Brigitte goes to the information panel and very quickly a map shows Axel’s exact location in the mall. A panel display  shows a video with Axel close to the toy store.

How does this work?

By walking in the hall, Axel starts the eGo pairing between the eGo compliant device (the carpet) and the eGo device (e.g. a belt,..). The eGo pairing done, the mall information system and eGo have a logical channel of communication on which they can exchange data. For instance, the mall information system has been notified by Brigitte about Axel lost

Brigitte can see where Axel is thanks an information panel paired with the eGo of Brigitte. The mall information system may easily check the filiation between Brigitte and Axel which legitimates the Axel geo-localization.
