Upskirting is the practice of making unauthorized photographs under a woman's skirt or man's kilt, capturing an image of the crotch area, underwear and sometimes genitalia. The solution that I came up with is an anklet designed to prevent upskirting by jamming the perpetrator's mobile and transfer personal data from the perpetrator's mobile to victim's mobile.

To prevent the perpetrator from taking pictures underneath the victim's skirt, it was essential to jam the camera. It could to done by visually jamming the camera or using the signal jammers so that the camera doesn't work near the skirt or my introducing a glitch with will render the perpetrator's camera useless.
