Video: UbiSafe uses location to keep people out of danger

TREVISO, Italy – In recent months we’ve witnessed an interesting evolution as location-based mobile services have stretched their tendrils into new spaces – social networking (Plazes), conversation (Nokia Chat), and even in combating CO2 emissions (we:offset). So it’s encouraging to see yet another developer take a different approach to context aware services. Dubbed UbiSafe, this location-based service has been designed to help ensure people with special needs, children, or elderly remain safe within a designated area, using GPS tracking technology.

This is the last nugget of mobile software we’re showcasing of those chosen as part of the 2008 Forum Nokia Innovation Series initiative.

Briana Francavilla, head of Marketing & Communication for Ubiest, the company responsible for UbiSafe, gives an interesting demo of the application in action. Watch the full video here…
