Telenor maritime service brings out alarm for lone sailors

Wednesday 13 November 2013 | 13:24 CET | News
Telenor Norway said Telenor Maritim Radio has developed an alarm for lone sailors. The core of the system is a small wireless transmitted that is easy to use and does not get in the way. The user should activate the signal if she or he falls over board or has an accident. The gadget activates the emergency stop switch, so that the propulsion machinery and hydraulic system stops. Also activates a local siren and flashing lights, and contacts the local coastal radio station, giving the boat's position via GPS.
