Inspiration

To help keep people safe, and to ensure that they can always have a way to call for help when needed.

What it does

With the press of a concealed button, the program will send a distress signal requesting police help

How we built it

We took a raspberry-pi and used the smtplib library to send an email to a specific email.

Challenges we ran into

Hardware barriers. Originally wanted to use an arduino with a GSM shield to send SMS messages, however the shield was not available at the time

Accomplishments that we're proud of

To finally get the system to properly send emails out of its own system.

What we learned

The utility of python

What's next for The Silent Whistle

Make a system that sends SMS messages, and an improved physical design.
