An activation method of an alarm for risk of aggression, robbery, risk for life to a user and a device implementing such a method which are automatically activated


In today’s society, personal security has become a real concern. Indeed, in recent years, the number of reports about people assaulted all over the world has significantly increased, and most of the victims are women. Furthermore, also the need of personal security at work has become increasingly evident. Indeed, when working in dangerous contexts, providing personnel with adequate security equipment is fundamental.

The activation method covered by the patent, presents a broad range of potential applications. Indeed, it can represent a useful tool for different contexts, such as personal safety B2C (e.g. in case of aggression, robbery, etc.) and B2B (industries, hospitals, stores, etc.).

Specifically, the increase of the heart rate that occurs during a situation of danger is detected through biosensors and specific algorithms, and the alarm is thus automatically activated.

The activation method comprises the steps of:
-- deducing the user's heart physical condition;
-- determining reference values relating to the user's heart rate;
-- measuring parameters relating to the user's heart rate and activating the alarm when the measured parameters exceed the reference values.

Furthermore, the method comprises the step of continuously collecting and analyzing information of the user's heart parameters during his/her usual everyday life. In this way, it is possible to improve the determination of reference values, as well as the definition of several reference values adapted for specific daily contexts and moments.

The main advantages are:
-- The device implementing this method is automatically activated.
-- Low number of "not reported" alarm situations (when real help is needed).
-- Low number of false alarms.
-- The alarm activation method can be easily implemented by various systems (e.g. electronic bracelets, watches and other wearable devices).

Primary Application of the Technology

-- Personal Security
-- Security at work
-- Security B2C
-- Security B2B
-- Women security
-- Wearable devices
-- Internet of Things

The Problem Solved by the Technology

In case of aggression, robbery, and during a dangerous situation, people often are not able to call for help. Think about a world where when a person is assaulted or his life is in danger, an automatic alarm is sending in seconds and not in minute or hours.

How the Technology Solves the Problem

Using the heart rate variation (panic, anxiety, etc.) that usually occurs during a dangerous situation, we can know that there is a problem, in seconds. Indeed, the heart rate is the clearest and strongest indicator of the status of a person. Using it properly can save lives.

Competitive Advantage

In response to the growing needs for personal security measures, a plurality of solutions has been implemented. The easier solution is represented by the use of mobile phones for making rescue request calls. Anyway, in a situation of danger, the user not always has the opportunity and the time to make a call or to send a message. Other conventional security devices present the disadvantage that the user has to touch a switch to activate the device. Considering this, several devices have been developed. Some of them are automatically activated on the basis of signals coming from accelerometers detecting user's violent displacements or ground falls, or on the basis of possible damages to the device itself. However, such situations can provide false or not reported alarms if the user is immobilized without struggling. Consequently, there is still the need for improvements in personal security devices.

This technology is superior because it focus on the key aspect of personal safety that is heart rate.
