The purpose of this project was to design and fabricate a working prototype of a “doorbell” alert system to be used in the barn of a hard-of-hearing farmer. This project was completed in conjunction with AgrAbility, an organization that develops and provides assistive technology to agricultural workers. The problem is that a deaf farmer is unaware of when people come to the barn doors looking for them, as they may be in a stall on the other side of the barn.
