Abstract:

This project researches, develops, and demonstrates the technical merit and feasibility of awearable device which (1) detects the direction of a sound source or motion, and (2) alerts the user viavibration, images, and captions to the direction of this sound source or movement relative to the currentposition of the individual. This provides the user with a sense of independence and personal safety byalleviating concerns as to whether recreational, educational, vocational, or independent living settingsmay be adequately equipped to protect them.
