This years hack is now over and we are busy summarizing all the amazing ideas that the teams came up with. Please read about the winner and stay tuned for information about future event.
Movies, photos and other fun stuff will be uploaded continuously on our Facebook page: Here
“It feels great to be one of the winners for the second time in a row! We are really happy over the fact that the idea of saving lives make us win! The hackathon has been a great opportunity for us as a team and we did our absolute best to implement all of the provided technologies. ” – Vladimir Aluferov (RUS) – Invisual
Based on the data from people presence sensors our system can highlight windows that are most suitable for a rescue team to enter the building. In case of people trapped inside the building internal light system could be used for routing of rescuers. The system can show the firefighters whether there are people left in their building, where they can be found, and how to access the building.
“To be one of the winners today is great. I think that a lot of us came here for the opportunity to learn new things and we were actually taken off guard that we won, but it’s been excellent!” – Christoffer Thompson (CA) – Re-Empower
As the population of western nations ages, age related illnesses such as Alzheimer’s and Dementia are on the rise. More and more cases of conditions that can severely limit a patient’s quality of life are being diagnosed each day, placing a large burden on spouses, families and caregivers.
Re-empower would be a technological solution to this burden. It would allow messages recorded by a loved-one or a caregiver to be played back to the patient upon different actions. These cues would be time-based: either individual one-time reminders, or repeated ones to deal with recurring problems like incontinence. These messages would be delivered by small devices that could present a useful message upon detecting motion in a specific region, or upon a button press. The system can include both static, home-based units, and mobile systems meant to be carried by patients.
Major design criteria of the units include low cost and simplicity to use. These are important because spouses of Alzheimer’s and Dementia patients tend to be older and less comfortable using complex technology. Households including someone with Alzheimer’s or Dementia tend to have relatively little disposable income, as they often are affected in their primary money-earning years and have to pay for treatments and assistance. The modularity of the system would allow users to tailor a setup to their needs, and would allow it to be adapted as the patient’s condition progresses.
