We wanted to create a device that would help people in need of a caretaker maintain their privacy and still have quick access to help when needed.

What it does

Sensors bring input from its surroundings and motion controls to output a message on a separate device to alerts another person.

How we built it

Using an Arduino UNO and a Leap Motion sensor, we give serial input to the computer and use the microcontroller to respond to those values.

Challenges we ran into

Taking in serial input from Leap Motion, creating reliable commands using the motion sensor.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

Quick updating of the help requests from the sensors

What we learned

How to use a motion sensor and communicate with another device

What's next for Smart Assist

Improving the emergency protocols using bluetooth or WiFi integration
