IamHere system is developed to assist a rescue worker to locate victims under collapsed building by sending a signal from rescue worker’s smartphone to trigger victim’s smartphones to generate sound. It utilizes Wi-Fi signal which can be broadcasted from any devices but not limited to smartphones. When victim’s smartphone can detect the signal, it will automatically generate the sound which can lead the rescue worker to its location.
IamHere system is divided into two apps which are as follows:
All thing you have to do is just fill up your personal profile in IamHere.
When disaster happens, the rescue team will search for you by sending a signal to activate alarm at your smartphone. The smartphone will constantly generate sound, so that, the rescue team can hear and know where the sound is coming from. Thus, they can locate the victim. Your personal information and search status will be display at the lock screen notification
When survivor smartphone receive signal from rescue worker, It will sound the alarm. Also the distance from the rescue worker will determine the frequency of the alarm to further help with locating survivor.
Rescue worker only needs to choose commands and filters to generate SSID. Then use it to broadcast command to victim's smartphone.
The IamHere application will periodically upload it's current position to the server, which will be used in the event of an emergency. This will happen only once a day with the smartphone is connected to the Internet. The information we collected is every rough in the level of district and province to not violate the privacy of the user.
