AU Students Won URC2020 Best Presentation Award
AU Students Won URC2020 Best Presentation Award

Ajman-UAE: April 21, 2020:   Despite the unprecedented Covid-19 challenges, Ajman University (AU) students have made it happen again and showed their exemplary resilience and diligence.

Two student groups from the University have won the Best Presentation Award in the Undergraduate Research on Applied Computing (URC2020).

This was part of a two-day conference held online on April 15-16, 2020 with the participation of 400 competitors.

Ajman University students have stolen the show and far excelled 159 presentations submitted by 400 competitors from 24 universities hailing from seven countries worldwide.

The conference, aimed to encourage the research activity of university students in the UAE, GCC, and Arab countries, provides an exceptional forum for students to present their researches and interact with young researchers, faculty members and industry leaders.

From a total of 15 Best Presentations, AU students, from ECE and BME departments respectively, won two awards.

The first project titled: “Smart Two-Way Communication System for the Hearing-Impaired Students” was presented by three students. 

These are Mohamed M. Abduljawad, Mohammed O. Elnour, and Youssef M. El Sonbaty. The project was outstandingly supervised by Prof. Mustahsan Mir, Executive Director, Office of Institutional Planning and Effectiveness, AU, and Eng. Wessam Shehieb, Electrical Engineering Teaching Assistant.

The Smart Two-Way Communication System for Hearing-Impaired Students, known as “Mosme'e”, is a system that bridges the gap between the deaf and the average person.

This project is aimed to help hearing-impaired individuals who struggle to communicate with their peers without the help of a medium. The hearing-impaired user wares Augmented Reality glasses that transcribe the spoken words from around the user into written text; and smart braces that detect muscle activity as the user signs their words and transcribe said words into spoken speech. Thus, a normal conversation can be had without the need of an interpreter or a medium overseeing the conversation.

As for the second project, the “Swimming Pool Sensor”, it was submitted by Yasmeen Hamdan Mariam Abdalla, and Shahad Monther, and Aisha Dah under the supervision of Dr. Mohammed Nassor, Assistant Professor, Head of Biomedical Engineering Department, and Eng. Mohamed Agam, Biomedical Engineering Teaching Assistant.

The Swimming Pool Sensor has been developed in light of the increasing number of the children drowning in swimming pools annually due to their parents’ negligence and lack of awareness. Children are mostly unaware of the danger of unattended swimming.

A device has been designed to sense when anyone approaches a swimming pool. It detects any incident of drowning in swimming pools and to check the quality and temperature of the water and ensures safety and privacy.
