The Development of Memory and Visual Attention
Event Date:

Abstract:

Infants’ and children’s brains undergo a large amount of change throughout development. These changes lead to improvements in visual and cognitive abilities – such as visual functions and the ability to pay attention or encode events to memory. During this Brown Bag, I will present the developmental research I completed during my graduate studies, focusing on my Master’s thesis and PhD dissertation work. 

 
 
EchoEye: a device to protect visually impaired travelers from upper-body obstacles
Event Date:

Abstract:

We present the EchoEye, a sonar-based obstacle detection device we have developed to protect visually impaired travelers from upper-body obstacles that may not be detected by a cane or guide dog. The EchoEye prototype is worn on the head and warns the user about nearby upper-body obstacles by providing vibration feedback when these obstacles are near.
