Philips Lifeline - Now With Skyhook!

Philips Lifeline provides a medical alert service, and as such it can be vitally important to know the location of the wearer, particularly if they are having trouble speaking during their emergency. The company is teaming up with Skyhook, a geolocation system that uses not only cell towers and GPS, but WiFi access point data as well in a "hybrid" approach to pin pointing the wearer's location.

Skyhook’s hybrid location service will be part of a suite of locating technologies used with the new GoSafe system and designed to help provide Lifeline Response Associates with the location information needed to support locating of users in the event of an emergency.
