Abstract
In a dire situation such as having a sudden stroke or heart attack, falling and being unable to get up, sudden loss of consciousness, or even in perilous fight or flight situations, people often rely on others for help. What happens if there are no immediate people around your surroundings? Who will be able to take care of us when such an event occurs? At Smart Trak Solutions, we are proposing to alleviate this problem by designing an intelligent personal safety device.Smart Band by Smart Trak is an intelligent wearable wristband integrated to the user's smart phone and is intended to be used as a personal safety device. Using the onboard sensors built within the wristband, we can develop an algorithm that can detect certain events. For example, using the accelerometer we can detect when a person falls and can't get up, in this instance Smart Band is able to notify user's emergency contacts via SMS.
