CAUSES of accidents can occur anytime and anywhere. According to the traffic corps of Indonesian National Police 2017, the biggest cause of accidents is a human factor which is more than 50%. The rest is human attitude which is 40% due to drowsiness.
Therefore, Ari Devianto, an Electrical Engineering Deparmentat student of Faculty of Engineering, University of Muhammadiyah Malang (FT UMM) and his two colleagues, Adwin Nugriho and Fikri Febrianto, created a creative idea called "Safety Watch"; a smart watch as a pulse frequency stabilizer while driving.
On the last October, the idea was competed in the Student Creativity Program of Muhammadiyah Higher Education Technology Discussion Forum (PKM FGDT-PTM) which is an annual event for the Engineering Faculty of Muhammadiyah universities throughout Indonesia.
Creative initiative supervised by UMM Engineering Lecturer, Mohammad Chasrun Hasani ST., MT and Ir. Nur Alif Mardiyah MT, has won the 1st place in the competition. The advantage of the Safety Watch is based on Internet of Things (IoT), or a device that is connected to internet. Because of industrial revolution 4.0 era, it was already capable to be used. The jury was interested in the tool.
At first, their team was still afraid when tested. Although their shock equipment meets the standards, to test these tools suitable for human use, they registered safety watch with the Ethical Clearance (EC) or ethical feasibility so that it was declared suitable to be used by humans.
In the future, they will register the copyright and develop the tool based on the IoT, so it is integrated with the smartphone. "The goal is that users of Safety Watch can monitor pulse through a smartphone application. It can also send messages to families when users get danger, it can be seen from the pulse rate," added Ari Devianto as the chairman of the PKM. (ard)
