The students at the University of Maryland in College Park are safer on campus these days thanks to Dr. Ashok Agrawala. He describes a virtual campus safety app he created called “Escort-M” that transmits real-time audio, video and location information from a UMD user’s wireless device to public safety personnel at the university’s Security Operations Center. In essence, it provides students or faculty walking late at night with a virtual personal security guard.
