WHAT IS YOUR PROJECT ABOUT?
My project is a smart wearable Cap that detects if someone is near you by less than 1.5 meters and it tells you by blinking a led in the top of the cap visor while a buzzer makes a sound near your ear, in this way it ensures that you are going to notice if someone is near you even if you have headphones or are distracted.
WHY DID YOU DECIDE TO MAKE IT?
Because due to the coronavirus pandemic, I decided to make a gadget that helps the social distancing by alerting if someone is near you for less than 1.5 meters and that you can keep with you everywhere. That both workers on offices, deliveries of restaurants, small kids returning to school after the lockdown, or even people with disabilities can use to return to their normal activities.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
A ranging sensor detects if someone is near you by less than 1.5 meters and if so it makes a sound near your ear and blinks a led on the visor of your Cap so in that way you are aware of the risk in which you are.
