Track Point / outdoor lifesaving product

Track Point
Track Point

Each person has a unique scent that is different from everyone in the world. This scent is transferred to the sweat from our bodies. By utilizing a Nanocomposite Film Sensor System on TrackPoint, it is able to sense the user’s unique scent. This enables TrackPoint to detect where the user has touched thus guiding the user back to their home base. The idea is similar to how a dog tracks a person with scent alone.
