SoundWatch, or see a smart watch for the deaf in action

Deaf or hard of hearing people have a huge problem with catching important sounds in the environment, such as knocking on the door, fire alarm or horn. Therefore, scientists from the University of Washington decided to help them and developed a smartwatch called SoundWatch, which identifies sounds from the environment and informs the user about them with a vibration signal and a visual message. The project was initiated by Dhruva Jain, who was inspired by his own experiences, because he is also a person with serious hearing problems. The whole works on a fairly simple principle, namely the watch's microphone listens to specific sounds from the environment, sends them to the connected smartphone, where they are processed and return as an appropriate message with information about the type of sound and its volume, and the smartwatch vibrates at the same time to attract attention user.
