Take Back the Night in the regional news

The project Take Back the Night, lead by Franziska Klügl in the MPI team, got its press release today! The aim of this project is to improve users’ basic impression of being safe while walking around the Örebro University campus at night. An android application has been developed that shows in real-time the amount of persons in different locations of the campus. Check the ORU webpage for more information and the SVT regional news. To download the app, look in the Swedish Play Store for “Feeling safe @ ORU campus”.
