New app aims to send location info to dispatchers
RapidSOS is an app in development designed to relay critical information to dispatchers with the touch of one button on a smartphone
BOSTON, Mass. — Teams from MIT and Harvard just launched an advanced emergency communication startup with the potential to kick United State’s widely used crisis line 911 into modern times.
The 15-member team has worked with largest tech companies and national labs to develop RapidSOS – a one-touch app that will instantly deliver critical information to nearest responders.
Even though the 911-response system seemingly works great, it has a few flaws that can cost human lives.
