Electrical Engineering Capstone | Reminder Rosie

This electrical engineering capstone project addressed the challenge that families face in balancing independence and safety of persons with dementia. Students sought to create an addition to the existing Reminder Rosie product, an alarm clock system designed to assist those living with dementia by providing pre-rerecorded reminders of events and tasks at times set by a caregiver. This product has accompanying mobile and desktop apps for caregivers. Currently the Rosie Reminder only offers audio reminders. For their capstone project, students aimed to design a visual aid displays to accompany audio reminders in order to increase the effectiveness of the reminder system.
