Putting the 'Pro' in Prototype: Environmental Audio Monitoring Wearable with Syntiant's TinyML Board

Earlier this year, we reported on Solomon Githu’s environmental audio monitoring wearable that was designed to assist the hearing impaired. As a refresher, studies have shown that deaf individuals are three times more likely to be hit by a car while crossing the street than their hearing counterparts, in large part because they miss important audible cues. Githu was determined to overcome this problem by creating a wrist-mounted device that could provide a warning, via haptic feedback, when important sounds, like those of emergency vehicle sirens and car horns, were detected.
