The Geriatric Engineering Technology Lab engages School of Applied Engineering and Technology students in hands on research projects that involve designing intelligent living environments to support independent living by individuals over the age of sixty-five. The lab contains both Arduino micro controllers and quad-core Linux Raspberry Pi systems to interface with and program sensors, motors and cameras, among other devices. In addition, students work on advanced design projects in gait analysis, facial recognition and proactive AI software to assist individuals as they age. Advisory group members in this age group interact with students to ensure their designs meet the needs of the target community, while internships with companies such as CISCO and Johnson & Johnson help refine their design projects. Students teams have the opportunity to commercialize their designs through the National Science Foundation I-Corps program based on NJIT’s campus.
