In 2016, there were over 3,200,000 accidents at work in the European Union only, of which more than 3,500 were fatal.
The growing needs in the field of occupational safety require an automatic warning systemfor communicating accidents and/or assaults to the personnel, especially when working alone.
The app Nora responds in a transversal way to these needs. Through a smartwatch it can constantly detect the user’s movements in non-intrusive way. Its algorithm translates these movements into data and finds out its range, thus being able to recognize when they are due to normal movements or to injuries.
The base of Nora is the constant interaction between smartwatch and smartphone. The smartphone allows the system to keep a constant connection with the Operations Centre and, if it detects a dangerous situation, it will automatically send a geolocalized warning that allows the fast intervention by the rescue teams.
