Ian Potter Foundation Grant Winners

The Robotics Design Lab has just won a grant from the Ian Potter Foundation for a project to develop and deploy a version of the "Smart-Ball" - an interactive, programmable tonal soccer ball for children with vision impairments that provides sound cues to help a player locate it. Surya, Hanna and Paul will use this support to engineer a more robust version that is easier to manufacture and use. This project is being conducted and fielded in collaboration with experts from Vision Australia.
