Project Summary Project Information

For an updated project description, click on the following link for the Project Readiness Package.

The main objective of the P12003 – Dynamic Keyboard IV team is to fully understand and prepare the DK set up for appropriate user testing during MSDII term.

As a part of the assistive devices project track, the goal of the Dynamic Keyboard team is to provide a pressure sensitive computer keyboard. The project device will emulate a typical computer keyboard and then return character input as well as pressure and timestamp information. This device targets the deaf community by providing enhanced text based communication. The design team successfully enhanced, tested, and delivered the legacy device provided by past teams.
