Fathimath Zuha Maksood, Moza Saif Al Yarubi, Amani Salim Al Dhouani, Geetha Achuthan . Prototype for a Personal Safety Gadget using Arduino Uno. International Journal of Applied Information Systems. 10, 1 ( November 2015), 12-17. DOI=10.5120/ijais2015451456
Personal safety has grown to become one of the most important requirements in today’s world where children are abducted, women are threatened, and senior citizens manipulated. Increase in usage of technology and smart electronics provides an opportunity for a simple cost-effective safety gadget that helps the victims during unforeseen dangers. A successful attempt has been made to design and implement a prototype for an electronic gadget which has the potential to serve as a safety wear in the coming years. This paper covers descriptive details about the procedure, implementation, testing and results that were obtained. It also outlines the plans regarding the future plan and its potential release in the market. The design is microcontroller oriented and uses Arduino Uno and SIM900 GSM modem as its major components.
