Angelguard Six million auto accidents in the United States each year result in over 40,000 deaths and two million permanent injuries. Many of these deaths and injuries could have been prevented if only someone had called 911 sooner, or if the caller could have provided more accurate information to dispatchers. Texas-based Guardity Technologies manufactures an automatic crash notification device (ACN) called AngelGuard that they hope will greatly reduce these numbers.
Technology makes a difference in a crisis
Guardity’s AngelGuard is a miniature device that plugs in under the dashboard of a vehicle and incorporates sophisticated sensors and advanced intelligence to accurately detect a crash. Through voice communication with 911 services, it helps 911 assess probable injuries. In the case of an accident, this intelligent M2M black box makes an immediate call directly to 911 using the nearest cellular network and automatically transmits critical crash details and location directly to the computer screen of the nearest 911 dispatcher.
