Prisha Pahuja, Nysa Pandey, and Kashish Gola from team Innovative Wanderers of Sneh International School, East Delhi were on a mission to create a device that could prevent drowning and other immediate hazards by communicating danger to pre-identified individuals. With the guidance of their mentor, they came up with the Herzonic Band, a wearable communication and health monitoring device that allows a person to contact help during dire situations and keep track of their health parameters like heart rate, blood pressure, and oxygen levels.
Using their knowledge of Arduino, the team created a prototype which they assembled with the help of their teachers and engineers. The band has the potential to be a valuable tool for people involved in sports, Medicare, security, and other such areas.
Their hard work and dedication paid off when Prisha Pahuja got selected for the AIM-CNPNYC (SIRIUS) Innovation program 3.0, which was held in collaboration between AIM India and SIRIUS Russia.
The team plans to scale up the project by adding more basic features like a watch, pedometer, and calorie meter to track daily steps and calories burnt. As the market for wearables continues to increase, the Herzonic Band has the potential to be the next level avatar for today’s smartwatch, incorporating more features like viewing notifications from the phone.
The experience concluded with a boot camp organized by Link Foundations, which showcased different prototypes and taught the participants essential skills like teamwork, communication, planning, organizing, managing time, and problem-solving.
Overall, the Herzonic Band has the potential to be a great resource for people who are conscious of their safety, health, and commitments. It is an inspiring example of how innovation and technology can come together to create solutions for real-world problems.
