Dr. Rakesh S. G., Associate Dean, School of Engineering, Bengaluru, along with another professor and three engineering students developed a tamper-proof safety device, which can be integrated with the central-locking system of cars and can work without the internet. "This device is a simple add-on to the inbuilt central-locking system in cars. There are just two switches on the roof of the car, which can be accessed by passengers. One is a check button that allows the passenger to ascertain whether the safety device is working and not tampered with when s/he gets into the vehicle. The other is the panic button; on pressing it, the vehicle sets off an alarm to people aroundsothatthey can reach the passenger for help”, shared Dr. Rakesh.
