Team 105: Smartpack
Students: Isaiah Begay, Vanderson Cunjuca, Milan Patel, Logan Spearin
The function of the Smartpack is to enable a means of communication for a user with aphasia/dysphasia in today’s Covid era. The Smartpack is mounted to the users back in an active state and a complement of infrared proximity sensors will trigger to the user, via a vibration motor, whether a person is within a six-foot radius of the user’s backside. In addition to the trigger, the user can display, via conductive pads mounted to the strap of the Smartpack, a variety of predefined messages on an LCD (i.e., respect social distancing protocol) to the person within the user’s space.
