fall detection
mobile app
device triggers


The smartphone comes with many advanced features such as Wi-Fi, Global Positioning System (GPS) navigation, high-resolution cameras, and a touchscreen with broadband access that help users stay connected worldwide. This study focused on the development of a system framework for mobile application in emergency services that triggered fall detection. The mobile application is named Save Me! Application (app), where it can provide a simple medium to provide safety awareness to public people, especially among teenagers. The app can pinpoint the victim’s exact location when the device triggers fall detection. Subsequently, the message can be distributed to relatives, parents, or friends who have been pre-registered in the app to help the victim. The app also offers additional protection to parents or families who are busy working so that they can keep track of their children.
