Mobile Assistance for the Elderly
Last year, final year students created a “Mobile Assistance for the Elderly” (MAE) as a final year project and attracted media to cover their innovation. Today, we are seeing various organizations adopting the technology and building up the technology on to meet their needs. This year, the project was again on showcase at the Polytechnic’s Open House. If you are interested in the project or may be one of the potential adopters f the project, you can come down to Ngee Ann Polytechnic School of InfoComm Technology’s innovation hub at Blk 27 #04-01 to find out more.
Travel Assistance for the Visuall Impaired
Other than the popular MAE, many other project works which the students and staffs are working on are also showcased. One which caught our eye was a new iPhone Application called ” Travel Assistance for the Visually Impaired” (TAVI), which aims to help the visually impaired of our society to navigate around. While the current prototype is still at work and only focuses on navigation within the Polytechnic, the development team is planning to launch the full application in 2 months’ time.
