Samsung x Cornell Tech

Problem
How might we increase consumers’ understanding of how to take advantage of Smart Home tech?

Roles & Duties
A designer, front-end engineer and product manager.

As a team, work with Bill Lee, VP of Samsung Electronics America, to solve the challenge they’ve provided within Smart Home products:

“How might we increase consumers’ understanding of how to take advantage of Smart Home tech?”



Brief


GERI is a health monitoring dashboard equipped with data visualization for nursing homes to detect elderly looming health risks.

Challenge


“How might we increase consumers’ understanding of how to take advantage of Smart Home tech?”








Research


So why are they not adopting??


Pricing



Most consumers find Internet-of-Things (IoT) expensive.


Privacy & Security



They’re concerned about privacy and security issues



Ease of installation



Find IoT devices too confusing to install. Complicated onboarding processes.

Challenge Reframed



“How might we increase consumers’ understanding of how to take advantage of Smart Home tech?”

“How might we leverage Smart Home tech to help seniors live better?”




Research Interviews





  • Physical aids (nurses and assistants) are better predictors of looming sickness compared to doctors
  • Performance of basic daily activity and movements are strong indicators of looming sickness or death





  • Already looking for an intergrated Smart Home system over the past year.
  • Data concerned: safety/security & clinical
  • Needs a hub that could collect data from all different devices from different brands and provide actions based on data behavior





  • 1:27 nurse-patient ratio
  • Nurses evaluate the independence and frequency of assistance needed in day for each patient
  • Data concerned: sleeping, transferring & eating





Solution


Overview



A health monitoring system for early detection and intervention of the elderly.




The system is comprised of 2 parts:

  1. A series of smart devices strategically installed in the elderly's room to collect data. In our prototype, we used Samsung's smart home starter kit, specifically its motion sensor, to collect live data.

    Using Samsung’s smart app written in groovy, the data was then pushed to our “Firebase Instance.” This allowed us to work with the data, visualizing them and presenting the insight on our dashboard via JavaScript.

  2. A dashboard that allows nurses to monitor and act upon the collected data.

Key Players



Who we work with and who we test with




Iterations


Mobile dashboard hompage




“Location” expanded, showing where the elderly is located



Feedback
• Remove Alexa & emergency alerts
• Desktop would be a more reasonable/feasible idea





Dashboard Iteration 1 from Sprint 2


We referenced Activities of Daily Living (ADL) in designing our data visualizations for nurses.





Dashboard Iteration 2 from Sprint 2





Workable Product (MVP)


Dashboard Iteration 2 from Sprint 3*




In order to demonstate the product in its most realistic scenario, the toileting data was populated with research data mixed with real-time collected data






*Due to tight time constraints and development issues, design was compromised in order to make the prototype working in time for the grand presentation
