braille buttons close up
What it does
A voting machine for blind people - It accepts input from buttons with braille labels below to toggle through and select from a list of candidates. It tallies the votes on a server
How we built it
We utilized python modules, arduino code, and a server
Challenges we ran into
We didn't have sufficient hardware, required adventures off campus to acquire the hardware Fixing bugs
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We made it work, proud of the elegance of our final product display, though this is rather ironic. It also functions!
What we learned
Arduino, how to wire and code momentary tactile switches
What's next for Braille Vote
Make it more elaborate and more similar to the true voting process, including name, state, etc.
