Developing a Haptic Feedback System for Visually-Impaired Tracking of NBA games

Started Nov. 23, 2021

Abstract or project description

Fans experience sporting events using all of their senses, one of the most crucial being sight. Thus, visually-impaired individuals lose a significant amount of sensory info when experiencing a sporting event due to the lack of visual stimuli. In order to solve this problem, we are developing a haptic feedback system to provide visual cues from a basketball game to a visually-impaired user. This system will allow the user to track the location of the ball of a pre-recorded game using a custom-designed haptic board, which works in conjunction with vibratory elements and live TV/radio commentary to help the user monitor and follow the action. Such a design, as a result, will help improve and enrich the fan experience for a visually-impaired user.
