The project ‘Inclusive multi-sensor platform for autistic children that encourages social interaction’ was successfully completed in August 2021 by UK and Ireland SIGHT Group. This presentation by Eduardo Audiche shared project results alongside providing insight into how challenges related to project planning, proposal submission to IEEE HAC, stakeholders management, project execution and project monitoring were addressed. The presentation provided an insight into the impact and sustainability of project outcomes and the societal implications of using technological solutions with vulnerable children. The potential for replicating or scaling the project outcomes was discussed.
