“Today, we want our adventures to be safe,” explains Nelly Lachaud, head of the Kinéis Adventures project, “especially when we are in remote places where mobile phones have no access to networks.” Coupled with the international Cospas-Sarsat distress alert and rescue system, Kinéis Adventures promises its future users the utmost in safety. Everyone equipped with this beacon will be able to signal their position and transmit data to the satellite system designed to assist them in an emergency situation.
With the Kinéis Adventures application, users will also be able to exchange information with each other and forge a community of adventurers. It will enable them to share advice when preparing their expeditions (the most suitable equipment, etc.), to share good practices and to report events encountered on their route (obstacles, climatic conditions, wildlife, etc.) All users will be able to benefit from the community’s experiences before, during and after their adventures.
For the relatives and friends of adventurers who have stayed at home, Kinéis Adventures will put an end to the endless waiting they sometimes endure when they have no news for several days. Even in the most remote places without telephone coverage, keeping in touch with family and friends has never been easier. Kinéis Adventures will enable system users to share their adventure with others far away, to reassure their loved ones, and then be able to analyse their performance in detail for future expeditions.
