Due to popular demand, the following project will be taking place for the Leading Innovation Design Team in the Spring of 2020. Students who are interested, should email their transcripts and resume to Charbel Rizk.
The Opportunity: How many people are blind? It may shock you as well to learn it is a very large number. You may also find it surprising how little, if any, technology has been developed to help improve the quality of life for the visually impaired. If we are close to deploying fully autonomous vehicles, it would be reasonable to assume that we should be much closer to having an aid that can help visually impaired individuals safely navigate the streets and more. We are up for this challenge, how about you?
