Lift-off week-end and its deep reflexion

By Christophe Schranz February 16, 2020 Edition CHIC 2019-2020Discover WatchOn project

Good evening everyone,

I think we all share the same feeling: what a weekend! So much to analyze, to understand and to think about…

We got a lot of important insights and very useful feedback from all supervisors; thanks again! We uncovered tons of tiny details that will definitely shape our next prototypes and the final solution.

Thanks to John Fass, we understood the importance of data management in our project, moreover as we are designing a “surveillance” object. We still have to think about the way we want to use the collected data to only help people, not to threaten their human rights.

On the other hand, the weekend allowed us to define in more detail what technology we will use and how the global functionalities will work. We identified important steps that will impact our future choices :
– We need to validate the solution with real users (person with Alzheimer)!
– We need insights from caregivers
– We have to explore the LoRa swiss system in more depth

In the next blogpost we will probably be able to provide you more insights.

In the meantime, have all a good week! Cheers!
