SEMC 2018 exhibition organized by GD Goenka Public School Lucknow. Now, a chip inserted in a woman’s footwear can summon help for her if she finds herself in danger. This innovation, developed by a female student from Andhra Pradesh, sends messages from the user’s mobile phone to the police and her kin. It also shares the woman’s GPS location.
