Further implementation on our concept, “The Owl” took place this week, presenting our persona, the concept and early stages of prototyping.
Our target users are grandmothers who take care of their grandchildren. However, it is assumed that it can be used from a wider range of people who have hearing loss and are responsible for taking care a baby.
The main function of the concept determined until now is to detect the sound when the baby cries and send it to the hearing aid
Early prototyping took place, where Arduino was connected to Node – Red and the IFTTT
Next steps are to identify sound level and noise sensitivity in indoor environment and execute a real-life test.
