Design

 

SmartWalk is an automatic feedback device for visually impaired people to receive exercise feedback in a non-visual way. Using a magnetic sensor to track the rotations of the treadmill’s belt, SmartWalk sends this information to a Statistics Calculator mounted in the treadmill cup holder which keeps a continuously updated calculation of time, distance, and speed. Users can request time, distance, or speed feedback at any time using the button box, and after a request is made, SmartWalk quickly reads that data to the user in a human voice through either headphones or a speaker.  

Challenge

 

Freshmen don’t know what to expect in a roommate relationship because this is their first time living with a stranger. Many people have a hard time confronting roommates about issues. Unless they are serious issues, most avoid the room or just let them go. How might we build a communication tool for freshmen to be better roommates?
