HumaNav : Using telematics for humanitarian purposes
HumaNav is a real-time satellite geopositioning and fleet-management solution used by humanitarian organisations, NGOs and UN (United Nations) agencies for their safety and security. Developed in 2006 in collaboration with UNITAR and CNES (the French Space Research Centre), HumaNav is designed to facilitate the tracking of vehicles on the ground, particularly in Africa and all other priority intervention zones around the world.
In addition to tracking vehicles via GPS, HumaNav enables optimisation of everyday fleet management and emergency handling, ensuring the security and safety of staff on the ground. It is able to cater to the requirements of humanitarian agencies across the world, in terms of both security challenges and fleet management.
