The main purpose of this project is to develop a sensor-based system to measure how the sensory room at CareWays is being used. Currently the team behind the sensory room only have data about the people who use the room, through their signup process. What goes on in the room is not so clear. Why this is important is because they don't have a clear grasp on what equipment in the room is useful or not. It might be that no one uses an item in the room because they don't like how it works. This item could have been incredibly expensive or take up space within the room. By measuring what is and is not useful lets the team put more resources towards things that make more sense.
The multi-sensory room is a room designed to stimulate the senses. It contains a number of interactable objects in a safe environment which aim to provide a safe place for people with cognitive, behavioural and physical impairments to explore.
This room difers from other sensory rooms in that it is the first openly available one in Australia. You don't need to be a special client to access the room. This makes it far easier to access for people who need to use it.
This room is located in the West Dapto Community Centre. You can find out more about the room on the CareWays website.Find out more
We will put sensor hardware throughout the room to accurately capture use.
All our processing hardware is connected to a private wireless network to collect all data into a single location securely and flexibly.
We colect a broad range of data and then let the team select the data they want to view for research.
We want our work to be accessible to other rooms so that they can find out more about their rooms also.
