Title: EFFECTIVE HANDLING OF DISTRESS SIGNALS IN AN INTERNET OF THINGS ENVIRONMENT
Abstract:
Systems and methods may detect a condition with respect to a first device and generate a distress signal if the condition satisfies one or more safety criteria that are relevant to a second device. Additionally, the distress signal may be broadcasted, wherein the distress signal bypasses one or more application controls of the first device and has a transmission range that is restricted to a local area. In one example, one or more local preventive actions may be triggered, via the application control(s), based on the distress signal.
