Year 3 | Survival Product for U.S.T. | 4 Months | 2021

Immediate assistance is needed during the occurrence of tsunamis.

Yet first responders cannot attend to everyones' matters causing the increase in casualties.

Comalert is a beacon designed for U.S.T. to alert and direct people located in tsunami prone areas.

The intention is to create an intuitive beacon that decreases the amount of casualties and offers people a sense of security through communication features and haptic feedback for alerts and directions.
