Congratulations to the OMANA Emergency Alert team of Illinois Tech students that earned second place in the TADHack challenge for their project that provides "Multiple solutions for alerting contacts in emergency situation". Student on the team include, Aleksandra Kukeilko, Abhijeet Ambekar, Junfeng Wang, Milad Sabouri, and Nastaran Ghane

The TadHack Hackathon event was hosted by Illinois Institute of Technology Real-Time Communications Lab. In the event, the sponsors offered every team to use their API technology to develop a useful software. We took this opportunity and used their technology to solve a problem that matters to people in daily emergency situations and communications. The OMANA Emergency Alert team hack was a multi-solution android emergency app to help people in their emergency situation. The app connects the user to a predefined contact and will instantly send a customized message to the contacts. Also, the app developed to send a front camera picture of the user to the contact list and play an alert sound to help the user in emergency situations. The user can enable/ disable this features according to their liking.
