Mehdi Saleh & Zahra Samei, the architect of the award winning project Award Winning Penguin Smart Elderly Lighting explains, Assisting senior people is always inspiring. Two months were spent in a care center to find out the major problems of the elder people. Continuous communication between seniors and caretakers is critical which is not practical specifically when the elders are assumed to be in their beds. Falling down and leaving bed occurs which are potentially harmful specifically for the ones with Alzheimer and sleepwalking problem.The Team have designed a sensor-based WiFi-aided light,the Penguin,to gently light the room and inform caretaker by a vibratory bracelet.The Penguin can also be used in hospitals..
