On a Touch-Activated Wearable Device with Automated Location Sending Capability
Keywords:GPS, GSM, SMS, wearable, coordinates, closest police station, alarm, program
AbstractThis study proposes a device that enables a person in distress to remotely seek for help. It is a wearable device consisting of a microcontroller and a GPS-GSM module that has the capability to determine the closest police stations based on the current location of the wearer. When being triggered, it sends the current coordinates of the wearer via SMS messages to the corresponding nearest police station, and a pre-defined contact number. Afterwards, the device sounds off an alarm to fend off any threat, or to serve as an alert of your location.
