We built HUber: Human Uber! With our app, students send text messages about where they are and when they want to be walked home by security, and this information is then sent to a webapp designed for a dispatcher. Penn, as well as other college campuses, offers students a security escort to walk them home after a late night in the library or at an event, but the current system is very archaic -- students have to go outside to a quiet place to call the dispatcher, who then has to ask the student for all the necessary information. But with HUber, the process is simplified and more convenient for everyone.
