The raising questions on the security of women and children in our country is an obstacle that we need to overcome towards a safer India for its citizens. In such scenarios, women and children feel very helpless. In reference to the unfortunate set of events which opened the eyes of the nation towards the lack an immediate need for the safety of women in the country, there have been multiple efforts to implement different techniques to protect and thereby, assist the victims in such situations. Hence, there must be a system which can protect them with the least amount of complexity and involvement of the individual. The following project aims at improving the existing system by implementing automatic responses instead of the conventional manual method as, in such situations, the victim hardly has any time to provide a manual pre-designed operation. The device requires the following elements; Arduino UNO, GSM, Heart Beat Sensor, Temperature and Humidity sensor along with IOT. In critical situations, the victims have an increased heart rate along with an abrupt increase in body temperature and humidity (body sweat). Hence, the sensors can be used to monitor the following factors until it breaches a predefined value. Upon breaking the set limits, the GSM module will send a pre-defined message to the police and/or family member along with the GPS location which can be coupled with third-party apps like Google Maps. However, for improved functionality, the criteria for emergency contact can be a complex combination of body temperature, humidity and heart beat of the user. Such method is very helpful for women and children as the device does not require manual operation.
