Project Canary


Communicate with your coworkers and stay aware of their safety

The project integrates existing practices while providing a new system foundation that incorporates safety and productivity management, so that users can receive task information, safety feedback, and accurate personal threat awareness warnings via a single device. The system is customisable, can monitor an entire network of devises and provide feedback on exposure to potential dangers.
