Background: To ensure the safety of mobile device users and reduce pedestrian injuries with a portable device and a complementary mobile application that detects and alerts users of possible collisions.
Through the development of the Walk Texter we hope to bring awareness to the dangers of the seemingly harmless and undisruptive act of texting and walking while additionally showcasing that such a commonplace activity does not have to be reduced to a bare minimum to achieve safety and that with the constant advancements of old and new technologies, we can enhance our everyday lives.
