SAMAR STATE UNIVERSITY, Catbalogan City, Samar. – From a college thesis, now a commercialized product in-waiting. This is the fate of a computer engineering project of Samar State University in 2013, which has received at least 5 different awards to date, from local to national competition. The biggest was the USAid-STRIDE award worth PhP 1.03M received this month of February 2017.
The device is a system which allows visually impaired people to detect and evade obstacles. It comprises a microcontroller-based embedded design that can measure the distance to the near objects through the use of ultrasonic, which generates high-frequency sound waves and evaluates the echo which is received back by the sensor. When a nearby obstacle is detected, the device notifies the user through a sound and vibration.
In 2014, Ma. Corazon Curiano, ChillaUy, Bryan Garabilis, ArwilRoyandoyan and LeeanIlao, fifth year Computer Engineering students under the advice of Engr. Jon Alvin Macariola developed an Obstacle Detection and Evasion System for Visually Impaired People. This project won as Outstanding Research Project in Samar State University in March 2014 from among the 30 projects in the competition.
