Systematic prototyping in the See Far project

Systematic prototyping in the See Far project

A scheme based on intermediate prototypes (ABCD) has been used as a basic management tool to ensure progress and coordination during the development phases of the See Far project. The solution involves various components, technologies, experts and partners distributed throughout Europe. It has been very important to establish internal milestones to check progress, coordination, consistency and to get all the benefits of prototyping (experimentation, learning,…

Design and commercial exploitation speak the language of the value proposition

During the first steps of the SeeFar consortium, key aspects were identified that would make the technical solution not just a good technological proposal. The challenge went further and consisted in transmitting in each of the phases of evolution, the spirit of a solution so destined to support the vision problems of so many people. For this reason, it was essential to strengthen the alliance…

From Emergency to Precise Medicine

The rise of Digital Apps in the Healthcare Field Digital Apps and platforms are set to become the “new normal” in healthcare. According to Deloitte, the need for a cost effective healthcare is increasing every year. The NHS funding gap forecast to reach £30 by the end of 2021. Moreover, the rise in chronic conditions in the UK, expected to cost £5 billion per year…

Personalized profile, Intelligent component, Eye tracking

One of the innovative features of the See Far solution is that the provided suggestions are adaptive to the profile of the user.  This is achieved through the Personalized visual recommendation service. The Personalized profile of the user consists of the socio-demographic profile (e.g. age, occupation, marital status, etc.), the medical profile of the user (type of vision deficiency, severity of its vision deficiency, comorbidities,…

Smartphone Today, Glasses Tomorrow

Topic: Augmented Reality,  Personalized visual assistant service,  Personalized visual recommendation service,  Embedded navigation system “We will all soon throw away our smartphones” I’ve heard this quote many times in the past years and I keep wondering how long it will actually take. The past 5 years have been insane in the XR world, many companies have been working towards this new way of interacting with…

Integration strategy for a modular technological product by multinational partners in the era of coronavirus

The SeeFar application consists of various heterogeneous modules, such as smart glasses, various sensors, processing units, smartphone applications etc. So, the integration of all these modules was a challenge during the project. For all possible integration strategies (“big bang”, “with the Stream”, incremental, Aggregates, Subsets, Threads or “Functional Chains”, top-down, bottom-up, sandwich or hybrid, Criterion Driven or “Critical Modules”, Continuous) for the SeeFar having considered…

See Far collaborate with the Cattolica University from Rome

By presenting the See Far project at the Cattolica University, the students of the Master in Health Management manifested a great interest in the project and the work of Quantitas as a partner of the project and in charge of the socio-economic impact analyse. Therefore, Cattolica University has asked Quantitas to formalize the agreement and accept the internship of the students giving them a chance…

3D technologies for the proof-of-concept frame design

3D technologies (i.e. 3D scanning, 3D modelling, 3D printing) lay at the core of the design of the frame for the proof-of-concept prototype. For 3D modelling, open-source software was selected to facilitate collaboration between all the partners involved, located at distant sites. The parts and components that will be mounted on the frame (e.g. AR lenses, electronic boards, etc.) were 3D-modeled using 3D scanning where…

3D Printing and prototyping

Following researches and dialogue with partners, we have concluded that prototype D for clinical trials would be 3D printed. We discarded the moulding process because it was slow and it can take one or two months after the 3D design to get it. Therefore, we made a decision for the 3D printing option as faster and better for prototyping and low mass production. In-depth research…

Peter Skov Jensen gave an online lecture about See Far at CSH – Center for Sight and Accessibility Aids

On January 28th, See Far partner Peter Skov Jensen from Aarhus University Hospital gave an online lecture to the staff (Optometrists, occupational therapists, visual- and IKT-consultants) dealing with vision problems at CSH – Center for Sight and Accessibility Aids, located in Aarhus. (https://csh.aarhus.dk). CSH is a public institute that helps e.g. people with low vision by training them and giving them different kinds of tools…
