The CAMPANION App allow your to select your destination and the streets you’re passing by, then you can choose one of your family or friends member from your contact list, your chosen assistant does not have to use the app. While walking, the app will track your progress and periodically ask you “Are you OK?”, if you don’t respond by hitting a big green Yes on the screen, the App will automatically call your assistant after 15 seconds to notify him, but that’s not all, the App will also notify your friend if your headphones are taken away from the phone.
