Phase I of our marketing plan will try to incorporate seniors as a target group. Reflecting societies wants and needs help with new discoveries. "The 65-and-over crowd alone numbers 35 million, more than 12 percent of the population. Mature consumers are better off financially than are younger consumer groups," (Kotler, 2005). Kotler goes on to write about Abraham Maslow's theory of hierarchy, (Kotler, 2004), "Why does one person spend so much time and energy on personal safety and another on gaining the esteem of others? They include physiological needs, safety needs, social needs, esteem needs, and self-actualization needs."
Our mission is to provide the most effective and safe early warning and auto correct vision wear for aging drivers with low vision and others with disabilities.
Drive Alert Overview
"Drive Alert" is a new product that incorporates existing technology, (created by the Military, NASA, (2007), and Xbox, (2007), for Aircraft, the Space shuttle and video gamers, into a device which might assist an existing and future aging population and others with low vision disability. The technology was originally intended to assist both Military pilots and Astronauts as a type of fail-safe measure. Competition is tough and technology is a key factor in the global arena. EMagin Incorporated, (2007), must consider the global context while in business, as the environment can rapidly change. Internationally, seniors and disabled people are a global target market, so operating an automobile safely will appeal to millions.
