With more than one billion mobile phone owners, India is the world’s second largest market for mobile phones. So far the same phones and Smartphones were sold there large extent like in the rest of the world also.
But the Indian Government now guarantees a special feature: from next year every selling mobile phone and Smartphone must have an integrated emergency button and a GPS transmitter. This panic function will be activated automatically returns to a connection to an emergency Center. They can then take the call and, if necessary, initiate relief efforts. The GPS signal helps in case of doubt, to determine the location of the caller. The measure is to combat part of an initiative of the Indian Government, crimes against women.
Uber Long Has Integrated Panic Button In The App
The Indian Government also precisely pretends as the panic button is to enable: in a classic phone, either the button 3 or 9 button must be pressed longer. Modern smartphones, however, activate the panic button as soon as the power button is pressed three times. More details were previously but not yet announced. The private taxi service uber however since some time already has integrated a similar service in its app. After one of the drivers of the company there raped a female passenger, the company responded by establishing an own 24-hour emergency call centre. This can be achieved by pressing a corresponding button in the app.
The Pressure On The Government Has Increased Last Again
India has tightened penalties for rape and similar crimes in recent years, but not fully managed to fix the problem. On the contrary, the number of rapes increased in 2014 compared to the previous year by nine percent. Retailers report therefore have long been the fact that sales of devices for self defense-the pepper spray have massively increased up to the knuckles. In parallel increased the pressure on the Government to solve the problem at last. The obligatory panic button can be part of the solution here-however only, if the security forces then also adequately respond to a call for help.
