Meili is launching in Q1 2021.
Our new range of affordable, smart individual GPS devices have been designed in-house, here in the UK, from the ground up.
Our first launch, Meili Expedition, is an affordable, smart & rugged individual GPS device designed for Duke of Edinburgh expeditions, school trips, ski trips, and similar outward bound activities.
We looked long and hard to find a simple tracking solution with SOS feature, that could be used to safeguard participants, and to locate, track and analyse their movements. Whilst there are an array of personal GPS devices out there, they are all hampered by three fundamental problems,
1. they don't track teams or groups of individuals (or event participants, or boats) well
2 the battery life for GPS devices is always poor, often losing charge within 8-20 hours of being turned on. This is no good for expeditions and journeys that may last up to 30 days.
3 GPS devices that can stay on for more than a couple of days are unaffordable for the kinds of organisations that need them in significant numbers
And as for the name Meili? Meili was the norse god of travel, brother to Thor, son of Odin. What's not to like?
Uniquely affordable, with each device (designed and assembled in the UK) coming in at under £50.
Unique in its battery life, with a single handheld Meili having a battery life in excess of 30 days. Ideal for tracking and locating all participants in expeditions, on ski trips, school trips, ultra-endurance events and even sailboats & yachts during regattas.
Unique in its cloud tech: each Meili reports it's location and movement data to a secure encrypted cloud layer which can be accessed by you, via a secure portal to show the location of all of your devices, in real time or at regular intervals (you choose).
You can Geo-fence devices to receive alerts when they move out of a defined area or display unusual activity, for example:
- Has a Duke of Edinburgh Expedition of school children wandered off course? Has one of the group become separated from the others?
- Has an event participant (in an ultra marathon, or from a ski school, or regatta) deviated from their course, or stopped moving?
Unique SOS feature
You'd expect a GPS device to have an SOS feature. Hold down the SOS button and the operator receives an alert message, and a link to the portal to display your exact location.
What you may not expect, is the ability to send a drone to the location of the SOS signal, to relay back live images of what's happening on the ground.
We've combined waypoint technology with smart cloud tech and the unique capabilities of our brand new GPS battery tech to create something truly unique.
