CAPS: Curbing Assault to Protect Society

Manisha Mohan

We present CAPS, wearable on-body capsules which produce repulsive odor to deter sexual abuse. The capsules can be triggered by self-actuation, i.e. by pressure or when an act of forceful removal of clothing is identified.  The formulation of odor involves compounds like civet reconstruction, 1-4, butadiene and more.
