Life-Saving Israeli App Makes Appearance At Rio Olympics

The Jerusalem Post reports: As the world looks to Brazil for Olympic games, an Israeli startup is there to improve the safety of millions.

SayVU is an application that sends a distress signal to an emergency call center from any phone, even if it is locked. SayVU established a center in Rio, where the technology is now handling emergency and distress calls.

The company was selected as part of the Olympics’ comprehensive security network, along with Israeli firms International Security & Defense Systems and Safe City in a Box.

“We see the Olympics as a main stage for global exposure of the unique technology we developed,” SayVU CEO Amotz Koskas said.

The app cuts response time and brings assistance more rapidly from emergency services, including police, firefighters and first responders.

SayVU contacts emergency services without the user needing to open or log in to the application. When triggered, the app immediately starts to compile data using the phone’s microphone. That data then transfers a comprehensive picture of the emergency to service providers.
