|Project Summary||Project Information|
The Smart Walker II is designed to be used to assist the elderly in long term care facilities. The Smart Walker II should act like and resemble a regular walker and not be obtrusive; the previous Smart Walker that was developed was too obtrusive and robot-like.
The walker should be able to collect information about the user's health and functionalities (heart rate, temperature, etc.), be semi-autonomous, mobile, capable of detecting and preventing falls, and the ability to localize patients in its workspace for emergencies. The resulting design is a Smart Walker II that is unobtrusive and is much like a regular walker with enhanced features. The patient will use the walker as they would a regular walker during their daily routines.

Content Guidelines: Use these links below (or customize with links of your own, if appropriate for your project) to guide you in populating your website. A few points to consider:
- Be sure to include any relevant sponsor acknowledgement throughout your site
- Be aware of any information that your sponsor might not want publicly available. You can use the private directory for this information, and it will be available only to those users with Guest access to your site.
- Do not post any files on your site that are not yours, unless you are certain that they are in the public domain or you have received permission to post them. Examples of files that you should avoid posting are copies of published papers, standards documents, textbook chapters/excerpts, or copyrighted images. If you have received a .pdf of a paper through Interlibrary Loan, or purchased an ASTM or ISO standard, you may post it in the private directory, where only your team and guide will have access to it.
- If you are including contact information for people that would otherwise not be publicly available, make sure you have their permission. For example, your faculty advisor's email address and office phone number are already publicly available on the KGCOE website, and is fine to post. However, if he or she has provided a cell phone number to the team, that is most likely not public information and should not be posted without explicit permission.
