Abstract

To any university, the safety of students, faculty, and staff when on campus is paramount. To enhance safety, many campuses have “safety stations” of some sort scattered throughout. However, campuses such as Embry-Riddle Prescott also have hiking trails nearby. Safety pillars on hiking trails would be prohibitively expensive to build and maintain, and would also be less useful due to a longer response time for security officers. The MyBody System seeks to resolve these issues by introducing a system which is affordable, self-enclosed, solar powered and easy to maintain. The system would achieve this via custom wireless speakers disguised as rocks. This system would be able to play a loud sound such as a police siren when activated via either an app on a phone or some sort of wearable device. While an attacker might not be completely deterred, any hesitation on their part would give would-be victims precious seconds to reach safety.
