AML in a nutshell

When an AML-enabled smartphone recognises that an emergency call is made, it activates the phone’s location services, including GNSS and Wi-Fi, and sends the caller’s location information to the emergency services (to an SMS or HTTPS endpoint) automatically before turning the location services off again.
