On the social media a video is being viral in which a sensor is being displayed in the clothing. This sensor is being claimed that it can prove to be effective in protecting women from sexual attacks. The sensor was created by Indian researcher Manisha Mohan of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
According to the information given in the video, this sensor can be pasted in any type of underwear of women. It works in two methods active and passive mode. During the sexual assault, if the woman is in a sensual then passive mode will work. Women can send alerts and their live location to their closest by pressing a button connected to it. Because this sensor is connected to women’s smartphones. For this, a special app has to be downloaded in the phone and it needs to add phone numbers of five people who can support them all the time. The sensor goes through the alert with the same five people.
Active mode works in a woman’s unconscious state. For example, if a woman is sexually assaulted by giving her a drug in some way then the sensor comes into its active mode. In the cloth that the sensor is sticking, when the fabric is dragged or lifted, a message reaches the woman’s smartphone, in which it is said that what is happening with her is either consent or disagreeable. If the answer is not recorded within 30 seconds, the alarm starts ringing in loud voice from the phone so that the alert is reached to the nearby people. If, however, no help is given to the woman, then the message comes to the five people with the geo location of the victim, whose phone numbers have already been edited in the app. This sensor will help prevent sexual assaults on women at the same time.
