What The Buzz is All About
20.000 Cameroonians were killed by road accidents between 2010-2015; more than malaria and AIDS combined. A Cameroonian is ten times more likely to be killed by reckless driving than Boko Haram in the North of the country. To worsen things, emergency services hardly get notified about an accidents, so victims suffer\die. Road accidents are not just limited to Cameroon; according to WHO, 1.24 million people die as a result of traffic accidents and up to 50 million are injured every year with 90% of victims occurring in developing countries which account for less than 47% of registered vehicles.

'Traveler' is a mobile phone app which monitors the performance, speed, location and number of passengers on a bus, and with the help of 'big data' and 'machine intelligence' alerts drivers and authorities to potential dangers. The system automatically sends high speed alerts each time a given bus runs above regulatory speed limits. With an integrated cloud service and a 'back-end' monitoring system, we can provide 'predictive analysis' and recommendations to road safety officials which can help reduce road accidents. In the unfortunate case of an accident, the app detects its location automatically and notifies emergency services, hospitals and families of all users for free. The app uses internet, but is designed to work both On and Offline. Online, we do real time tracking and analysis of performance and incidents(accident detection, high speed alert). Offline, the app works as a black box device, tracking a driver's performance and incidents while saving them locally (inaccessible to anyone l). When internet connectivity becomes available, the app synchronizes with the server. We also have the first integrated offline emergency assistance guide to passengers. This would empower users of our app and give them the tools they need to deal with emergency situations at the "last mile" generally inaccessible to emergency services. Traveler is the first startup in Africa to leverage the power of big data, cloud computing, and machine intelligence\learning to predict and prevent road accidents.
Faced with all these problems arising from a mediocre surveillance system due to inadequate information and communication technologies, we have put in place a combination of cutting edge tools using last mile technologies which permit any one using the free android application Traveler to:
During an accident, you can alert the closest authorities and ambulances using the Traveler application.
With Traveler, immediately inform your relatives of any issues with or during the course of your journey.
Traveler lets you record the attitude and behaviour of your driver and immediately alert the authorities incase of any trouble
With Traveler, all you need to ask and assistance will be on its merry way to give you just the best.
Our mission is to reduce the number of deaths that occur due to road accidents to a minimum by the end of 2017 in African countries.
We aim to provide a platform for all African countries and possibly more where drivers are monitored and in case of emergency, provide vital information to families, road safety teams and hospitals.
