Around 46.6% of people feel 'unsafe' or 'very unsafe' while walking alone in their own community! At the same time, 97% of people feel safe with a walking buddy! We used this as inspiration to create our very own walking buddy system using facial recognition and technology :)

What it does

Swaby helps find a walking buddy, or another student, to walk with you to a certain destination. We use facial recognition systems to verify these buddies by collaborating with the schools database.

How we built it

We used Figma to design the app and create its flow, python with OpenCV to code the facial recognition software and Canva to make the pitch presentation

Challenges we ran into

Trying to work with people from different timezones.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

We're proud of designing an app that can positively impact the community a lot.

What we learned

That coding last minute is not a good idea!

What's next for Swaby

Enhance the facial recognition technology; collaborate with schools especially in neighbourhoods where the crime rate is above average
