NIT, KU students develop wearable device ensuring ‘personal safety, security, health’

Srinagar, Jul 24: The students from the National Institute of Technology (NIT), Srinagar, and Kashmir University have jointly developed an invention titled "Wearable Device for Personal Safety, Security, and Health Monitoring".

This cutting-edge wristband aims to address the pressing need for personal safety, security, and health monitoring in a single, seamless device, the innovators told the news agency—Kashmir News Observer (KNO).

The students – Syed Kashif Alvi, Nadia Amin, Hilal Ahmad Bhat, Jehangir, Jasmineh Jan, Dr Abdul Mueed Hafiz and Sajid Noor – said the project incorporates the state-of-the-art sensors and an algorithm to keep track of health parameters and also provides the personal safety and security. 

Kashif, one of the innovators, told KNO that the device is designed as a wristband and is outfitted with two sets of sensors.

"The first set of sensors is tasked with sensing safety parameters, while the second set of sensors monitors the health parameters of the user. 

These sensors are linked with a control unit that compares detected parameters against preset safety and health thresholds,” he said. If any parameter breaches its respective threshold, the control unit generates an alert signal, Alvi explained.

“This alert generation is predicated on the user wearing the wristband, effectively reducing false alarms. Upon generation of an alert, a corresponding remedial action is executed, thereby enhancing the safety and security of the wearer.” Nadia while giving details about the device said one of the most noteworthy aspects of the wristband is its ability to minimise false alarms. 

By relying on the user actively wearing the wristband, the chances of generating unnecessary alerts are drastically reduced, she said, adding, “This ensures that the device remains reliable and accurate, instilling confidence in the user about their safety and health.”

This invention underscores the value of integrating safety, security, and health monitoring into a single wearable device, fostering enhanced user protection, said Jasmineh Jan. 

According to Hilal Ahmad Bhat, the system is engineered to automatically trigger a corresponding remedial action when an alert is generated. This immediate response significantly enhances the safety and security of the wearer, making it an indispensable companion in potentially hazardous situations, he said. 

This “Wearable Device for Personal Safety, Security, and Health Monitoring” is a testament to the boundless possibilities that emerge when brilliant minds converge, said Dr Abdul Mueed Hafiz. 

“It symbolizes hope for a safer and healthier future, where technology is harnessed to serve and protect individuals worldwide.”—(KNO)
