Neither industry nor authorities have provided the deaf community, about 1 Mio. in Europe, with up-to-date solutions for communication with control centres.

The DECTS project improves emergency chat handling.

  • Deploying consent management technology for sensitive data exchange
  • Allowing purpose base data sharing during an emergency chat, and
  • Rolling out the existing solution at the European level.

Inspired by MyData principles and using current technological advancements in semantics and distributed ledger we want to implement and evaluate a solution that will not only benefit the deaf community but enables everyone to make silent emergency chats (e.g. in hostage situations).
