Could this smart defibrillator idea save more lives?

From ReadWrite:

What if those defibrillators you see on walls everywhere didn’t just help you help someone sick, they could also call 911 and tell you how far away an ambulance is?

The winning concept at a recent “IoT for Cities” smart cities hackathon, held earlier this month in Santa Clara, California, could do all of those things for you.

The team from Ukraine-based Ciklum brought together engineers in Europe and the U.S. to create a smart automated external defibrillator (AED). As soon as someone would begin charging the AED, the device calls 911 and tracks the closest ambulance to your location.
