Elementary schools will test GPS/cellphones (KDDI/au models) that track kids every six seconds and have various alerts and warning functions. The system, which has been set up with a company called ITFOR, will be tested through next March at three schools affiliated with Osaka Kyoiku University, before being expanded to about 100 others.
Based on kids’ routines, the tracking and monitoring systems will detect when a child is at a place not intended or stuck in one place too long, at which time it will send a warning mail with a voice notice to parents/guardians and school officials. The phones will also have an SOS function. Original Source [in Japanese] Via: DWT
