The Challenge

First Snow Co., Ltd, a Korean technology company, faced limitations with their initial approach of relying on wired network-type services through broadband networks of major Korean telecom companies. These limitations included communication specifications and high costs.

The Solution

First Snow Co., Ltd's flagship solution, the 'Smart Safety Management Service', utilizes IoT technology to revolutionize public safety and convenience in urban environments. This innovative service is specifically designed to provide swift situation reporting and rescue activities when accidents occur involving electric mobility aids and electric wheelchairs.

The need for such a solution is evident. According to a survey conducted by the Korea Consumer Agency (KCA), 35.5% of electric wheelchair users reported experiencing accidents such as overturnings and collisions. This staggering statistic highlights the pressing need for enhanced safety measures.

The Smart Safety Management Service operates in three steps:

1. Rollover Detection: When a rollover is detected, data is transmitted via LoRaWAN communication.

2. Data Collection and Processing: Sensor data from devices is collected and processed, enabling real-time monitoring and analysis.

3. Smart Services: The system provides emergency reporting, immediate notification to guardians, and other crucial services to ensure swift response and aid.
