Indian students design lingerie to check sexual offences
Apr '13
Three Chennai-based engineering students have designed new lingerie to help women combat sexual offences.
The lingerie tagged as Society Harnessing Equipment (SHE) is laced with global positioning system (GPS) and global system for mobile communications (GSM) modules, which makes it possible to send alerts to the girl’s parents and police, Deccan Chronicle said quoting PTI.
According to Manisha Mohan, a co-developer of SHE, the lingerie is laced with pressure sensors that can emit shock waves of 3,800 kv, which can be produced up to 82 times. 
Once the pressure sensors get activated, the person trying to molest a girl would get a severe shock, while the GPS and GSM modules would send emergency messages to police and the girl’s parents.
The innovative product has been jointly developed by Ms. Mohan, along with her two colleagues Neeladri Basu Pal and Rimpi Tripathi, all students of Sri Ramaswamy Memorial University in Chennai.
The trio are currently working on commercial launch of their product and have also sought help of a National Institute of Fashion Technology (NIFT) student to help them select a proper fabric for the product, so that it can be washable.
The new lingerie design developed by Ms. Mohan and her colleagues won a prize at the Gandhian Young Technology Awards 2013, organized recently at the Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad (IIM-A).
