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.
