HIKAway is a device that aims to protect asthmatic people from potentially fatal asthma attacks by constantly monitoring the air quality around them and automatically notifies when it is dangerous. It provides a way of knowing when to take precautionary measures when being subject to harsh air conditions. The device is portable and can be connected to a smartphone via Bluetooth. Real-time data on air quality is shown through the mobile application, and it notifies the user when it passes the safe threshold values. Through this innovation, the team hopes to provide peace of mind, knowing that HIKAway has their back.
