XPRIZE challenge: Make hidden device to help report rape
Zenia Tata doesn’t want another woman to experience what she calls her “scary joy ride abduction incident” in India after taking a cab from the Mumbai airport.
Tata wished she had a hidden device that alerted authorities she needed help and where to find her. That could soon come true. XPRIZE is about to launch a competition focused on women's safety in India, where a string of high-profile rapes and assaults have prompted massive demonstrations.
