Several incidents of rape, molestation, robbery, and physical assault have put women in India in an insecure position. The human trafficking has made both women and children feel bad against their country. Our project will overcome these crimes to the maximum extent and contribute a part for crime free India. The developed system makes use of an embedded system which is comprised of an open hardware Micro controller and a GSM modem based on Global System for Mobile communication (GSM) technology.

India, a nation of 130+ billion population, faces many problems regarding safety of women. Even today in many places, the safety of women is not assured at any point of time. The crimes against women are increasing day by day. Despite the existence of a number of legislations for providing protection to women, crime against women has increased. A total of 327,234 crimes against women were reported in 2016 compared to 296,312 during 2015, recording an increase of around 11%.

The Women Safety System is comprised of an Arduino Uno Micro controller and a standard SIM900A based GSM/GPRS modem. The whole system can be powered from any 9V DC power supply unit/battery. A touch sensor unit is also connected to the micro controller-based security system. The developed system alerts the guardian number given by the women at the time of purchasing the unit in case of danger. The location of the victim is sent to the number given and to the local police station(if necessary). The module sends the location of the victim every two minutes once the danger is detected.
