Student creates reality-based heat map to mark sexual harassment-prone areas

Bengaluru: Bengaluru student Nupur Patny has started a project called ‘It’s Not My Fault’ that aims at preparing real-time data on sexual harassment in the city.

A top official from the Bengaluru City Police (BCP) has said that a special team would be formed to help Nupur carry out the study.

The lack of zero-tolerance attitude towards sexual harassment among the public and the authorities caused Nupur to develop an augmented reality-based heat map to mark out sexual harassment-prone areas in the city. The project titled ‘It’s Not My Fault’ aims at facilitating post-incidental support to the sexual harassment victims on a digital platform.

She has visited many places in the city and collected data on incidents of sexual harassment before developing this map that highlights sexual-harassment zones in the city.

Real-time data will be made accessible to law enforcement agencies to take action. Also, the data collected will help ensure others do not get into trouble at the same locations, says Nupur.

Nupur is a fourth-year student at the Department of Human Centred Design at the Srishti Institute of Art, Design and Technology.
