Technology, Mobility, and Security. Elements to Introduce in an App Mobile as a Strategy to Survive in Vulnerable Areas
Keywords:Technology; Mobility; Security; Mobile App; Vulnerable Areas.
In Mexican and Latin American cities, the increase in insecurity in urban, intra-urban, and peripheral areas is alarming. In a context in which the use of information and communication technologies is essential in practically all socioeconomic strata and ages. We wonder if a mobile application could be a strategy to survive in this climate of insecurity in cities. The problem was analyzed using a methodology based on security urban perception and social cohesion indicators, comparative analysis of main apps used in secure mobility, and survey and interviews with a focus on daily journeys from 3 socio-spatially segregated neighborhoods of the Metropolitan Area of Guadalajara, Mexico as study cases. The results highlight the importance of daily security in cities, furthermore, allowed us to identify the main elements to integrate into the design of a mobile application with parameters in security and mobility as a key strategy to create and reinforce networks of social cohesion.
