Introduction
“Smart Locator”, name itself defines the aim of the project. We with our team members have attempted to develop a system which will help in saving life of humans. It is a locator that will have a sensor installed in a car which will sense whenever the car meets with an accident.It will give an immediate message to the nearby police station, hospital and their relatives whose contact numbers are stored in emergency contact numbers list. In this way, we can contribute to save the person’s life in such situations.

A.E.I.O.U Canvas
AEIOU is a method to help and interpret observations gathered by practice in surroundings. Its two primary functions are to code data, and to develop building blocks of models that will ultimately address the objectives and issues of a client.

Figure1: A.E.I.O.U Canvas

Activities:-
With the thought on people involved in different activities, an attempt was made to think up on possibilities of various activates. Elaboration at maximization is essential here at the stage while identifying activities, these results in comprehensiveness.

Saves life – Saves time
Calls ambulance – Send instant messages
Calls police – Trace location
Inform relatives- Gives location
Problem solving
Environment:-
Here actually in this canvas we are taking a note of an environment where we went for observing in nearby area or a location.

– Highways- Relatives
– Cars – Crowd
Interactions:-
Here we interacted with the clients or the user and discussed about the problem they are facing in using present product available in the market.

Driver- Police station- Relatives
Car- Hospitals
Objects:-
Here we observed the objects present in the location where we went for observing.

GPS tracker -Cops- Sensor or detector
Ambulance -Car
Users:-
In such we wrote the names for those who are directly dependent to the product.

Driver – Relatives- Police
Passengers – Doctor

Empathy Mapping Canvas
Empathy Map is the canvas where designer has to observe and understand the emotional needs of the user, and on the basis of empathy of user he will think of the solution.

Figure2: Empathy mapping canvas

Ideation Canvas
This canvas is based on how we actually get the idea about the main project. By simply observing the surroundings from the problems that does people find in their day to day life we get into concluding our idea about the main project.

Figure3. Ideation Canvas

People:-
There are many peoples who are concern with this particular project but the main ones who are benefited most are:
Driver – Doctor
Police – Relatives
Activities:-
With the thought on people involved in different activities, an attempt was made to think up on possibilities of various activates. Elaboration at maximization is essential here at the stage while identifying activities, these results in comprehensiveness.

Saves life – Saves time
Calls ambulance – Send instant messages
Calls police – Trace location
Inform relatives- Gives location
Problem solving
Situation/Context/Location:-
With number of people identified doing many activities, we attempted to identify different locations that are involved in performing such activities, situations that are applied to perform certain activities and context of importance that was relevant to activities. We came up with the following:
Highways – Road
Hospital – Police station

Props/Possible Solutions:-
The aim of the ideation canvas is to help us in noting down different requirements in line with attempting about addressing a various problems.

Accurate Sensors – Manual button available
Safe place for sensor
Heavy duty air-bags

5. Mind Mapping Canvas
Mind mapping is plotting of view, ideas and implementation of your project. It’s actually the plotting of what is your idea, what will be done, its consequences and all.

Figure 4: Mind Mapping Canvas

Product Development Canvas
Here we have mentioned purpose of our product, functions, features, revalidation, and productexperience. Purpose of our product is easy availability of water and less time consumption. We also visited other teams as a customer for user revalidation.

Figure 5: Product Development Canvas
Purpose & People:-
The canvas starts with the limited no. of people with their purpose who are directly involved in major of the activities of the particular project.

To save life – Saves life from accident
Reduction in death rate- Solving problems
Saves time
Sending/receiving messages
Product experience:-
Next we come up with the product experience. Here we have discussed whether the product we are launching will give better experience or not.

Very effortless- User Friendly
Time saving – More attractive
Easy to use – Efficient
Product functions & features:-
And then everything has some unique or common features. So at next we have discuss the features of our product i.e. product features.

-Smooth functioning
-Less time consuming
-User friendly
-Accurate
Components:-
Here we write the name of the components used or that do we are going to use in our future projects.

-GPS Tracker- Air bags
-Ambulance- Mobile phones
-Cops car- Sensors
Customer revalidation:-
-Good serviceability
-User satisfaction
-Product flexibility
Reject, Redesign,Retain:-
-No rejection
-Responsive design
-Technical fault

Learning Needs Matrix Canvas
Learning Needs Matrix help us to identify the learning requirements at an early stage along with prioritization of specific learning along with defined time allocation for each learning priority.

Conclusion
The project “Smart Locator” has been successfully documented. During documentation of this project, it was an interesting intellectual challenge and it gave us direct experience to make a project which is beneficial for the whole society and world.
