Safely Home ranked 38 in Top 100 free apps on google play store: Health and Fitness was started 2 years back by Ishan Jindal, a student of IIT Delhi. With the support from government of Delhi, Gurgaon Police and various NGO’s and corporates, it was launched in September this year and was covered by over 30 newspapers and media houses combined. It was 2 years back during the Introduction to Engineering class that it struck the idea to Ishan. The major problem in its early days was to build a team and create the product. The idea of Safely Home was to create a mobile application that is fully automatic in detecting road accidents to provide early help to road accident victims and hence eliminating any 3rd party or bystander’s role. The app accident detection once installed works even without Internet or GPS running in the background. The key motive of ‘Safely Home’ is to provide help within minutes of an accident.
AUTOMATIC CRASH DETECTION
‘Safely Home’ app can AUTOMATICALLY detect road accidents if installed in your phone without any human intervention. On detection of any unfortunate event (like a road accident), the app immediately informs your loved ones for early help. You can also help an accident victim anonymously by clicking and sending us a photograph of the accident site and we will make sure that help is provided.
Other additional features added: ROADSIDE ASSISTANCE
Whether your car breaks down, or you’re locked out, faced with a flat, or out of fuel, use the app to select all your issues and the GPS locator will log your location and will show the list of all cheapest, nearest and best mechanics available 24*7. Help will come in minutes.
