About

In a time when your mobile phone can tell Facebook or Uber where you're located, 911 operators are often left in the dark. Triangulation, which uses the closest cell phone tower, only provides the police with your approximate location, rather than precisely pinpointing your exact location. Sometimes the system can’t even get a fix on your cellphone’s location before the call ends. The imprecision and inconsistency of this process has an adverse consequence to your safety. Viveret is an android app that aims to keep you safe by providing police or emergency contacts with your precise location immediately. With viveret, you will create a profile that includes your physical despcription and add an emergency contact. During an emergency, the user can access the features of our app from a notification widget on the lock screen or by opening the app. A text alert will be sent to the user’s emergency contact, and the app will proceed to the 911 call. Text-to-speech will transcribe the user’s physical description and GPS location to the operator. The user will have an option to end the call after the automated message or speak to the operator if needed. Otherwise, the user can enter viveret's home screen, which shows their current GPS coordinate and a call 911 button.
