MITRA – SOS “PANIC BUTTON” MOBILE APPLICATION
It is true that it is
Modern World and everyone is always engaged
with stress of various natures (Family / Work /
Illness). Police not rolled
out, as they engage with court duties, senior
officer meeting, public agitations, emergencies,
incidents etc. Thereby, we cannot expect everyone
to anticipate or access our Emergency SMS / email.
Helping or assisting rescue work
who volunteers to help others ignoring his work and
stress. We cannot expect everyone, unless we feel
they are our CARE TAKERS. Such Care Takers
may be from Friends, Relatives, Police, NGOs,
Organizations, and Politics etc., as we deems fit.
Hence, concept of selecting more than 3 or 5 or 10
Care-Takers as Emergency Contacts is must.
Emergency also differs.
Some may require the assistance of Family Members or
Husband or Friend or Police.
Installation and Configuration plays major role:
Primary steps: Download the application, install it. Then configure
user details in User profile and configure the
selected “Care-taker” details in “My emergency contacts”.
Now your app is ready for use.

In light of the various
incidents where victims have no choice or time to call or scream for
any help this Pro-active security application is developed.
The primary aim of this app
is Women Safety and to curb the ragging / eve-teasing
menace and other difficulties faced by the women and girl
students. The concept, design and development by the
undersigned as a project to Mr.Jayaraj, MCA student of
Pondicherry University proposed by Dr. Sivasathya, Associate
Professor, Computer Science Department during 2013.

University campus during 2014-15. Student project

As add-on, it has all required
day-to-day utility services
incorporated with emergency and police contacts of Puducherry UT.
- MAIN GOAL
SAFETY OF EVERYONE:
is an SIM based (GSM / CDMA) “On & Off”
line mobile application to trigger pre-defined
SMS (off-line and SMS requesting for emergency assistance from
care-takers to ensure SAFETY OF EVERYONE
with special attention to “Children, Women and
Old Aged” in times of distress. It also triggers
pre-defined email requesting if “On-line”.
“During an emergency, it
is difficult for a person to locate his care-taker
or friend and make a call or draft & send an SMS
“without being watched / detected / identified by mischief
mongers / culprits”. But it is made easy
through MITRA. It also continues thereafter, MITRA
will automatically update your location through GPS
after every 5 or 10 or 15 or 30 minutes or as you
programme in its settings. This enables easy
tracking and rescue of victims of kidnapping etc.
A long felt dream has
been realized through the development of MITRA.
Just “5 click on Power button”
without opening the mobile or
a pre-defined SMS.
It is like an SOS customized especially for the Puducherry
Region. Here downloading of apps and its
registration requires online.
