The development of digital technology means that electronic devices accompany people at every stage of life. In recent years, there has been a strong emphasis on making modern technology accessible to older people and supporting them in their daily lives. Since it is crucial to get help as quickly as possible in the event of a sudden health deterioration, all systems that facilitate contacting the appropriate services are in high demand. For this reason, new devices are constantly appearing on the market that make it possible to quickly notify relatives or caregivers of the problems that have occurred. Apart from alerting appropriate people as quickly as possible, it is also important to easily locate the person calling for help, which is why various locating systems based on GPS technology are used.
