Womens Safety Device With GPS Tracking & Alerts
Womens safety is a very important issue due to rising crimes against women these days. To help resolve this issue we propose a gps based womens safety system that has dual security feature. This device consists of a system that ensures dual alerts in case a woman is harassed or she thinks she is in trouble. This system can be turned on by a woman in case she even thinks she would be in trouble. It is useful because once an incident occurs with a woman she may or may not get the chance to press the emergency button. In a button press alerting system, in case a woman is hit on the head from behind, she may never get the chance to press panic button and no one will know she is in trouble. Our system solves this problem. This device is to be turned on in advance by a woman in case she is walking on a lonely road or some dark alley or any remote area. Only the woman authenticated to the devices can start the system by fingerprint scan. Once started the devices requires the woman to constantly scan her finger on the system every 1 minute, else the system now sends her location to the authorized personnel number through SMS message as a security measure and also sounds a buzzer continuously so that nearby people may realize the situation. In this case even if someone hits the woman or the woman falls down and get unconscious, she does not need to do anything, the system does not get her finger scan in 1 minute and it automatically starts the dual security feature. This device will prove to be very useful in saving lives as well as preventing atrocities against women. The device uses GPS sensor along with a gsm modem,lcd display,leds and microcontroller based circuit to achieve this system.
