GHALE: ENABLING APPS FOR EMERGENCY CALLING
GHALE is a platform that routes roaming emergency calls originated from apps into the local PEMEA* network. It connects emergency callers to the public safety answering points (PSAPs) through multi-media services using the internet. It enables users the to be easily located in case of an emergency, and people with speaking and hearing diffuclties to communicate with emergency responders using dedicated tools and technologies. Additionally, it allows travelers to reach the closest PSAP when they make an emergency call.
*Pan-European Mobile Emergency Application framework
Deveryware is a member of PEMEA Consortium
Limitations of current emergency calls
- Inaccessibility for people with hearing and speaking disabilities or difficulties
- Language barrier when communicating in different languages with PSAPs
- Inability to automatically share accurate location with the PSAP
- Inaccessibility by the most common communication applications
- Ineffeciency to assess the emergency without receiving pictures of the situation, and thus to intervene correctly
