The objective of the Liveline project is to develop a commercial, secure location sharing service based on EGNOS/EDAS for vulnerable people. A vulnerable person is somebody whose unexpected absence creates high level of concern and anxiety at the side of his or her close relatives and caretakers, as they may not be able to find their way back home and easily become victims of accidents or crime.
Liveline focuses on vulnerable people in a family context, e.g. children and elderly people. Secure location sharing of a vulnerable person’s position saves critical search time, takes away needless worries and reduces unnecessary police interventions. The final goal of the project is a product that combines the security expected from a location sharing system with the joy expected from a social web application.
The Liveline project is funded by the 7th Framework Programme of the European Commission addressing call topic GALILEO.2008.1.1.1 (a) Use of EGNOS Services for Mass Market-Innovative Applications targeted to SMEs. The project started on 4th January 2010 with a duration of 18 months until July 2011.
The final review took place in Amsterdam on July 19th, 2011. See the news page.
