With the advancement of technology, the quality of life of people has been profoundly enhanced. However, despite all the advantages that cutting-edge technologies are bringing, the hearing and speech-impaired persons cannot fully benefit from them. These individuals cannot easily comprehend the speech of normal people and as a result cannot respond to them. The primary aim of this paper is to bring the advancements in mobile application development to the hearing and speech impaired persons thro...

Early detection of disease outbreaks is crucial and even small improvements in detection can significantly impact on a country’s public health. In this work, we investigate the use of a crowdsourcing application and a real-time disease outbreak surveillance system for five diseases; Influenza, Gastroenteritis, Upper Respiratory Tract Infection (URTI), Scabies and Conjunctivitis, that are closely monitored in Mauritius. We also analyze and correlate the collected data with past statistics. A crow...

Abstract The aim of this project is to design and implement a low cost Autonomous Unmanned Ground Vehicle (AUGV), a vehicle that can be controlled remotely without an onboard human presence. The AUGV is also able to move autonomously while automatically detecting and avoiding obstacles. The vehicle also reads directions from QR codes, calculates the shortest path to its destination and autonomous move towards its final destination. A Raspberry Pi 3 has been used as the brain of the vehicle toget...
