Abstract: In the event of a kidnapping or a medical emergency, a person is often incapacitated to be able to call for help. And it’s usually too late before the first responders arrive on-scene. Currently, a vast array of ‘safety’ devices available in the market are often far too rudimentary such as double tapping the power button that isn’t very practical, or an app on a smart watch that is a huge investment in the first place. The Smart Band aims to eliminate the need for a physical trigger by the person who finds himself in dangerous situations like kidnapping, front-facing some wild animal, heart attack, etc., and rather senses the heartbeat. The Smart Band is designed as a personalized wearable device, wherein the user heart beat rate is collected and trained using machine learning algorithm, which triggers the alert system automatically when the event is identified. Hence the accuracy of assessing emergency situation will be high and false rate will be reduced. As soon as the event is detected, the band relays GPS coordinates to first responders and emergency contacts, which will be sent via the Network Carrier (SIM card module) directly from the band, not relying on a mobile phone, which is usually out of reach during such emergency situations. In essence, the Smart Band consists of a GPS tracker, a heartbeat sensor, a Network module, and a Bluetooth module, all existing technologies which have been mass produced to an extent that the end product can be made affordable, and in huge quantities as well. On further development the smart band can be customized to a finely wearable jewel which can serve the purpose autonomously.
