Guardian

Students who live off-campus are not given the same access to security as those living in university housing, putting them at risk of crime in their neighborhood. In fact, students who live off-campus are 15 to 20 times more likely to experience crime than students who live on campus. There are many factors that increase their risk, including a lack of awareness, inefficient campus safety methods, and simple apathy or denial. Many college students are told what safety measures to take but are not given any way to practice those methods other than going out and doing it.

Situation awareness is a common, effective method of increasing your personal safety. It has four steps: observe, orient, decide, and act. You observe your environment for information, orient yourself to find anomalies and threats, decide what to do, then act on that decision.

Guardian is a safety training app designed to build and develop users’ level of situation awareness. Users play activities with their community to improve their skills. Guardian uses artificial intelligence for cognitive engagement while aiding in building the user’s independent cognitive skills in perception, memory, decision-making and attention.
