Our product is named Salus, Latin for safety, which is what we aim to achieve. To help women all over the country from being harassed, Salus is a handy tool. Apart from being a digital watch, it incorporates one of the many attention gathering and self defence objects-

1. A bright LED to blind the assaulter momentarily,thus helping the individual to escape or gather attention.

2. A loud alarm to gather attention.

3. A pocket knife for self defense.

We also want to include a position tracker so that its easy for help to reach the affected.

We want to include direct dialing or texting in case of an emergency, to selected few contacts and the police.

We aim to include facilities that help in cases of emergencies but are cost efficient as well. We want a wider area of society to be able to afford it and use it.

Casque is a smart helmet that is designed to solve every problem associated with a helmet ( except ofc " hair fall and dandruff"). Surrounding eventpool awareness is a major feature of the helmet which ensures that neither will you miss a sign on the road nor will you find any alert of your phone disturbing. A tragic post accident phenomenon observed in this country is the long response time by emergency services. We tackle this by requiring no external reporting entities. The helmet takes care of everything.
