The “panic button tool” and its functionality:

  1. On pressing the “panic button”, a traveller will be assisted with the roadways staff and policemen.
  2. The system and control of the “panic button” is established and controlled by the SMS feature.
  3. After immediate pressing of the “panic button”, the following details will be sent to a special number:
  • Vehicle number (bus in this case)
  • Route of the bus
  • Details of the driver and the conductor of the bus

After receiving the above details, the police will be informed with the help of a control system.

In the coming times, the system is being prepared to directly inform the police in case of such emergencies.

Nirbhaya case leading to such progress and development systems now:

After the major turmoil situation and happening in the country the Nirbhaya case, Delhi government had planned to install such “panic button” systems in their buses but this matter was merely limited to statements and did not result into a substantial form.
