NGOs working with camp management and migrant flows need crowd insights to make decisions that are informed, responsive, and impactful. Aileen, a hardware/software suite designed for NGOs, counts signals from devices with a wireless interface enabled (such as smartphones) to deliver population data in an organised and actionable format. This WiFi-based mapping of the movement of people is user friendly, open-source, in compliance with the EU General Data Protection Regulation, and provides real-time information.
Seita, together with PNGK and IOM, the UN migration agency, developed (and is currently piloting) the Aileen box, which helps to automate and improve the task of counting attendance manually. Aileen includes a cloud dashboard to establish a very valuable data service for humanitarian aid NGOs of various kinds.
