Leaf Wearables, an Indian start-up by the students of IIT Delhi and Delhi Technological University, were chosen amongst the top 10 innovative startups in India by Department of Science and Technology who accompanied Prime Minister Narendra Modi on his visit to Silicon Valley to participate in first India-U.S. Startup Konnect (September 2015).
The smart safety device was developed under project ‘Guardian’ which won an Ericsson innovation award this year, resulting in a full-fledged product and led to the start of Leaf Innovation Pvt. Ltd in February 2015. The product, now known as SAFER is a smart safety device, which can be used to trigger alarm and send signals to pre-identified phone numbers in case of emergency. SAFER works on Bluetooth low energy and thus works in coordination with the “SAFER by Leaf” app on the user’s smartphone. The device can be used as smart jewellery in the form of a necklace; and is available in three colors on www.leafwearables.com
