''This project started as a way for me to teach students to see andunderstand the ways that engineering can be used for the greater good,''said Kumar Yelamarthi, the professor and project leader. ''We wanted to dosomething that would help people and make our campus more accessible. '' During the spring term, Yelamarthi and five senior engineering studentstested the cane, which is equipped with Radio Frequency Identificationtechnology, similar to what retailers put on products to keep them frombeing stolen. The Smart Cane contains an ultrasonic sensor that is paired with aminiaturenavigational system inside a messenger style bag worn across the shoulder. For the test, the students installed identification tags between twobuildings on the campus in Mount Pleasant, Mich. A speaker located on thebag strap gave audio alerts when the system detected an obstacle and toldthe user which direction to move. Students wearing glasses that simulate visual impairment tested the cane. The students also created a vibrating glove to assist those who are bothvisually and hearing impaired. Yelamarthi said it's one of the first outdoor applications of RFID and saidhe plans for students in upcoming classes to further refine the systemwhilehe seeks grants to speed the research. The next step probably involves using the system in a wider area. Down theline, Yelamarthi wants to work toward integrating the Smart Cane's datawithGPS.

The company, Boyce said, has “an unlimited advertising budget for programs that work. I realize that’s highly unusual not to set a limit on marketing, but that gets back to our testing. ”About half of Defenders’ advertising spend goes to digital and half to traditional media, he said. He declined to say how much Defenders has spent in recent years, only calling it “multi of multi millions of dollars. ”“You would be surprised by the number,” he said. “It’s very significant. ”•Schoettle grew up in Indianapolis, graduating from Southport High School and Indiana University.
