AeroLamp is a smart robotic desk lamp embodying a pioneering development in Natural User Interface (NUI) design. Free of remotes or controllers, AeroLamp recognizes voice inputs and the natural gestures of human hands to maneuver its robotic position and lighting properties. This unique control of mechanical movement can be achieved without the use of physical contact of any kind and represents the first of its kind in a smart lighting product. An onboard camera will be utilized for observing hand gestures and motions, providing data which will be classified and interpreted on local processing hardware. With this implementation, control is no longer constrained by user location, distance, or physical contact. The removal of physical contact is an essential step in preventing contact transmission of diseases in populous spaces, which is likely to be a societal concern following the COVID-19 pandemic.
Undergraduate Engineering students are required to complete a group-based, two-course capstone sequence: ENSC 405W and ENSC 440. Groups form company structures and create an innovative product that potentially acts as a solution to a real-life problem. This collection archives the following assignments: proposal, design specifications, requirements specifications, and proof of concept.
