Contactless POS

As the COVID-19 spreads worldwide in 2020, people pay more attention to personal protection while making contact with public equipment or devices. Sadly, most Point-of-Sale (POS) devices nowadays still require physical touches to complete transactions, which provides a pathway for spreading viruses. To alleviate this situation, our team is dedicated to inventing a contactless POS terminal that could help people complete payments without any physical contact with the device. This project utilizes advanced holographic imaging technology and infrared sensing technology to construct a contactless system, providing a “touch-in-the-air” user experience.

Contact Trace

MiniTrace is a contact tracing system that aims to slow the spread of COVID-19. Through the use of wearable devices, base stations, a database, and much more, MiniTrace is able to privately monitor interactions and track possible COVID-19 exposures in localized environments such as schools and nursing homes. Until this virus is no longer a threat, MiniTrace serves as a solution to control COVID-19 and further protect our society.

Door Display

Our project is a low-power, self-sustaining information display that can be used in office spaces, lecture rooms, and event halls. The content sent to the display is easily configured from our Android mobile application and it charges its battery with onboard solar panels. This means that for the lifetime of the product, there are no wires or plug-in charging necessary for the product to function. This is meant to replace the expensive tablets that are typically used in buildings for displaying information (think tablets displaying class schedules in the EECS building). It is even suited for personal use as an e-paper picture frame. Our solution is less expensive, both in upfront and utility (electricity) cost.
