Multi sensory experience
Many people with serious visual impairments can travel independently, using a wide range of tools and techniques. The idea was to develop a tool to help the people with visual impairments to travel safely, confidently, and independently in the home and the community. The concept product is a receiver which can be used as a ear gear/head phone, and the system of audible signages fixed in the public system/ spaces. This was a concept level project, and was described through an interactive presentation.
Process The idea was to generate a concept for a device which uses different technologies and produces a multi sensory out put User study First 4 days I worked on understanding the methods of commuting of the blind, in a systemized space, like malls, public offices. And I tried to understand the user requirements. Market study This phase I studied about the available products and tools related to this problem. Mapping of the data, and concept generation The data gathered from the surveys/interviews were mapped and different concepts were generated during this phase. And the wireless connectivity device was the selected, and developed. And for the submission, an interactive presentation was made explaining the scenario and solutions.
