-- Falls are the highest risk of injuries for people over 65 years of age -- "FEARLESS System" is a smart solution for use in nursing and retirement homes. It consists of a combination of a 3D sensor installed in the room and artificial intelligence in the form of a sophisticated algorithm that evaluates motion patterns. The 3D sensor detects movement patterns in the room, processes and analyses them continuously. If a critical movement is detected, e.g. a person falls down, the system reacts by alerting a carer. The alarm can be transmitted via existing alarm systems or via SMS to a relative.
