Our plan together with you

Challenge 1

Remote Access


The best will win 3000 €


 

Teams will engage on remote access to smartphones providing emergency call centers access to smartphone functionalities when needed.

Challenge 2

App-Development


The best will win 3000 €


Teams will prototype a fully operational app with situational Ux. The app transmits GPS location audio and video to an Emergency Call Centre and allows remote control of speaker and flash light by the dispatcher.

Challenge 3

Tools in Action


The best will win 3000 €


Teams in this session will use openly accessible and our partner’s tools and SDKs, incl.  vital sensoric technology, VR, AR, Drohnes etc. to create a life-saving solution for better managing emergency cases and health-crises.
