  • From Spain
  • Responsive
  • Patents for licensing

Summary of the technology

Geolocation application that is designed to promote mobility and autonomy of people.
Its operation is based on the marking of safe areas where the user controls the environment. The system issues warnings to the caregiver or person in charge in the event that certain circumstances occur, such as leaving an area set as safe, lack of battery, wrong direction, etc. In addition, the user has information on their situation at all times through messages and color warnings on the screen.
In short, it is an application conceived as a tool that facilitates movement and personal autonomy. It has a high number of potential users since it includes both people who move around in wheelchairs, children, the elderly in general, or those with some problems with temporary disorientation, as occurs in the cases of people affected by Alzheimer's.


Details of the Technology Offer

New and innovative aspects

It uses Geolocation mechanisms to Support Mobility. The development takes advantage of the possibilities of mobile phones to fix, fundamentally by means of satellite, the user's position and benefits at all times from the information of the environment.

Main advantages of its use

This android application allows you to maintain control over one or several clients at all times, over the different aspects offered by the configuration. In this way we can monitor the elderly, people with some type of physical or mental disability, school-age children, high-risk athletes, etc.
As it is an application whose use must be responsible and used with caution, at all times the client has a code which must be provided to the administrators who want to be monitored. At any time you can unsubscribe from the application and as a consequence of the control of its administrators, in the same way that administrators can unsubscribe or unsubscribe clients.


Android application whose objective is to be able to control a person in different aspects. GeoMobility consists of two applications, client and administrator, and a server:
• The client consists of an application that is sending your phone's data (positioning, speed, battery, etc.) to a server where a series of checks are carried out and the administrator is notified, if necessary, of any changes. incident. It also offers the possibility of pressing the SOS button when the user is in trouble, and directly calls the administrator and sends an SMS indicating the current coordinates. And finally, it has a color control indicating to the user if everything is fine (green screen background) or if there is any active notification in the administrator (red screen background)
• The administrator is the application where you can monitor different clients, each one with its own personalized configuration. It offers multiple settings, notifications for speeding, reaching the set battery limit, leaving a set area, leaving a set path, getting hit, sending messages to the client, etc.
• The server is where the bulk of all operations are carried out, which is why it would be very easy to develop the application on any other platform, since the logic is centralized on the server. The two applications need to have communication with the server in order to work correctly
Includes the concepts of Usability + Accessibility
• USABILITY: Quality attribute that measures how easy it is to use an object, service or item.
• ACCESSIBILITY: Degree to which all people can use an object, visit a place or access a service, regardless of their technical or physical abilities.


It is an application that can have multiple uses, from people with some kind of disability who need to be watched, to children who go to school alone and parents can keep an eye on them, to high-risk athletes who, out of precaution, prefer that they know where they are at all moment.
