SUMMARY REMARKS & TESTBEDS
XENO is the most versatile & most usable technology solution that alerts the first responders in just under 90 seconds if a woman in distress needs help in most challenging circumstances. Our approach to get the fastest possible help to a woman in distress, and also maintain privacy & anonymity inspired us to name our solution XENO -a Greek term meaning stranger. XENO is all about building a community of good strangers (gig-workers) in proximity who can be instantly mobilized to rescue a distressed stranger (victim woman) from a bad stranger (perpetrator). This proposal takes Xeno to the next level by freeing the service of recurring GPRS costs and making it accessible in the most unlikely conditions of multiple connectivity failures via BLE5 mesh-networking.
