Global warming is one of the biggest challenges that is threatening our well-being on Earth. One of the side effects of global warming is that it is not taking a lot of attention, is skin cancer, as it infects a high percentage of children. SUNNER is consisting of a wrist band with an “Ultra Violet” sensor that detects the percentage of the UV radiation that the person is receiving, then sends this signal to a mobile phone in the form of a UV index number.
The mobile application receives this notification, and displays it in the form of a colored sign, showing if the radiation is weak, moderate or strong. SUNNER is targeting young kids, and that is why it this mobile application is developed to receive notifications on the parents’ phones. In a case of exceeding the limit of safe radiation, SUNNER is advising them with the actions that can be taken to save the kids from being affected.
In addition, the application will be having more information about skin cancer diseases, statistics describing the information collected from the bracelet, and it will be open for further development in the future.
