It’s observed that most of the crimes against women takes place during night-time. Only safety measure available for women during emergency is pepper spray which is often unconventional thus we came up with a solution for it. With the help of our high intensity torch light, women can flash it into the eyes of the person whom they suspect and since our pupil contract when exposed to bright light it causes loss of sight for a few seconds then that women could electrocute that person with the electrodes attached to it. This is an alternative to pepper spray since women can’t keep pepper spray in hand all the time while walking in streets or roads but can have a torch light with them and the suspect will misjudge it with an ordinary torch light. With the help of Arduino and SIM808 GSM/GPS the position of women is sent as message to their guardians. Apart from it the flashing of light is controlled by Arduino. This is only a safety measure and can help girls from being harassed but apart from it initiative must be taken from every Indian to make India a better place to live for every women.
