Event Type: Discussion

Lorraine Liao and Rebecca Cook struck out to answer the question: in the time of Corona Virus how might we maintain a six foot distance without feeling self conscious and restricted from our daily activities? As part of the Urban Informatics II Course at Columbia University, the pair developed and beta-tested a wearable ultrasonic distance sensor that could help facilitate social distancing.

The APA Tech Committee is looking forward to hosting a conversation around this project. Rebecca and Lorraine will share a presentation on their findings, which will be followed by discussion. We are excited to see where the conversation goes, as the city and world begin to reopen in this new post-pandemic era.
