ME310 Project Based Engineering Design
SAP's prompt was to create the ideal work environment that met the needs of each worker in an office at all times. The problem was redefined to be about simply finding what hinders employees in an office from actually being able to do work and feel successful in their office environment. The most consistent and the most problematic issue was the amount of distraction that employees combat in the office every single day. The primary cause of these distractions came from noise from coworkers, be it direct or indirect communication, talking or listening to something on a computer without headphones, etc. The core of the solution then revolved around changing employee behavior to reduce how much they disrupt their coworkers with noise. The specific solution to enable and spark behavioral change was a three part system. First, noise detecting suspended ceiling tiles visualize the loudest areas in an office through each tile's embedded set of lights, which are to help employees realize when they are being significantly louder than their coworkers. The microphones in each ceiling tile send their noise level data to a server in the cloud. The second part of the system is a smartwatch app that collects the data from the microphones. The app determines if a worker with a smartwatch is in the immediate vicinity of the loudest area in the office, and sends the worker a notification offering to automatically book a nearby unreserved room in an effort to have the employee relocate so they aren't disruptive to others. The third part of the system is a sound map, an online heat map overlaid on an office building plan that visualizes the noise levels in every part of the office so that workers seeking a specific noise environment can locate it and then move there. It can also be used to inform managers about noise patterns in an office, possibly to influence future room and building layouts as well as specific worker placement. There is also a management system for facilities managers to easily remove or replace individual ceiling tiles.

105. Releaf [2016] Online

Learning, Design & Technology 2016
75% to 80% of university students are stressed. Past studies reported that students frequently use dysfunctional coping strategies, and that despite the prevalence of social media, students are dissatisfied with the level of social support they receive when stressed. Releaf is a social platform that leverages the existing Facebook network to allow friends to provide timely, research-based support to one another in stressful times. Individuals can post anonymously to their friends and respond to their friends’ posts by browsing and choosing from a library of research-based coping strategies. Giving advice to friends also allows individuals to learn how they would effectively deal with similar situations.

Brings together, for the first time, all known legal materials on slavery in the United States and the English-speaking world. This includes every statute passed by every colony and state on slavery, every federal statute dealing with slavery, and all reported state and federal cases on slavery. The library has hundreds of pamphlets and books written about slavery—defending it, attacking it or simply analyzing it. We have gathered every English-language legal commentary on slavery published before 1920, which includes many essays and articles in obscure, hard-to-find journals in the United States and elsewhere. We have provided more than a thousand pamphlets and books on slavery from the 19th century. We provide word searchable access to all Congressional debates from the Continental Congress to 1880. We have also included many modern histories of slavery. Within this library is a section containing all modern law review articles on the subject.

112. Smart Connected Home [2016] Online

Collection
ME310 Project Based Engineering Design
Baby-boomers are starting reach an age of retiring and next in line will be generation Y. Given the aging populations is starting to have stronger correlations with using technology; these are the generations of the computer, the personalized computer, the ipod and the iphone where technology is everywhere and in everything. It seems logical that given that there is this much technology moving into the homes that the same technology should follow us as we age. Hence, our team has been looking into how we can help parents and grandparents with the use of technology and smart designs to make their lives easier and increase their physical home and life integration. Our current focus in our prototyping has led us to believe we can provide people with essential needs using technology. We can provide functions that stem from a need for assistance in walking around the home for either medical reasons (muscle weakening, low bone density etc.) or trouble with balance. The older adult population today commonly uses walkers for this scenario, but given the current technology and need for variety in walkers we thought our idea fit best as a post manufacturing add on that could use the current physical systems to provide advanced functionality to the user for easier navigation, increased convenience as well as protective features. With this project we hope to provide help to people with the new challenges in their lives. Some people forget how often we walk through doors, traverse obstacles, and even simply cross a room with ease. In this document we hope to show how we hope to provide automated docking to minimize the owners need to remember to charge their walker and burden themselves with trying to physically get themselves to the walker. We also hope to provide something that could potentially open doors for the owner such that they can move through rooms with ease without messing with doorknobs and worrying about closing a door behind them. If it is also deemed necessary we also would like to explore the capabilities of the walker to help protect the owner by either alerting the family if there is cause for concern or just letting a facilities manager know that certain people have left a building as to prevent them from not being able to seek help from any location. Truly the main drive for this project is to help the owner of this technology maintain their independence as long as possible, by eliminating the need for physical assistance from family of care givers. We want our users to feel as if they can regain capabilities they thought lost with their physical handicaps and to enjoy just being able to do things when they want and how they want them done.

SuperGenerational leverages the wisdom, expertise, and availability of America's senior citizens to provide younger learners with useful feedback on their projects, presentations, performances, and questions about life. SuperGenerational is an online learning environment where America's senior citizens and younger learners interact around student projects, presentations, performances, and broader questions about life. At the heart of SuperGenerational is the belief that healthy communities are intergenerational, that senior citizens are our most underutilized human resource, that children need exposure to wrinkled skin and old ideas, and that there is magic in skipped generation relationships. SuperGenerational's intergenerational feedback network is powered by real time video conferencing, the wisdom and expertise of our senior citizens, and a richly scaffolded process for teaching participants the benefits and art of giving and receiving good feedback.

The Syrian civil war has taken a catastrophic toll on the health of displaced and fleeing Syrian children through the decimation of hospital facilities and insufficiency of medical relief. A meaningful partnership between the UN, NGOs and private sector businesses – which centers on ameliorating the horrid conditions of children caught in conflict – may improve the lives of Syrian children in urgent need of medical care. Further, an established coalition as grand as the proposed UN-NGO-private sector partnership will create a fully functional emergency relief apparatus that can exigently benefit children caught in or escaping from war zones as well as aid children ambushed by comparable, inevitable human rights crises in the future.

The deterioration of urban areas has led the federal and city governments to enact developments through their respective urban renewal programs. However, the refurbishing of an urban space through private development has led to many social and economic consequences, including gentrification through the rise of property values that can lead to the displacement of low-income residents. In this 4-point proposal, collaboration between federal government, private developer, and local community is encouraged to prevent the negative effects of gentrification.

If current trends continue, the United States will not have enough doctors to meet its medical demands by 2025. Because of how long it takes to train a doctor, this problem must be addressed now.

The Syrian Civil War is creating serious economic, political and social ramifications not only for the Syrian refugees fleeing for their safety, but also for neighboring countries facing the brunt of an impressive migration. This refugee crisis has created discussion about the roles, efficacy and focus of non-governmental organizations (NGOs). I argue that NGOs should move from solely alleviating poverty to a more long-term scope that fosters economic development, creates education opportunities and empowers Syrian refugees.
