IIT Kharagpur developing app to help smokers quit

Kharagpur | India

Researchers at the Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur (IIT Kgp) are developing a mobile application to help smokers quit. The app could be integrated with a fitness band or a smartphone to track and alert users with an alarm when they try to light a cigarette. A simultaneous alert will go to a friend, relative or doctor of the smoker to intervene and deter the smoker from smoking.
