KFV Research Award for Gerald Steindl, BSc


Gerald Steindl was honoured by the Austrian Road Safety Board for his research project "SWIM-ASSIST".

SWIM-ASSIST gives visually impaired/blind people fully autonomous auditory feedback as soon as they approach the edge of the pool during swimming.

This is technologically realised using artificial intelligence and Bluetooth bone conduction headphones.

The awards were given to research projects in the fields of artificial intelligence / digitalisation, child safety and damage caused by climate change. Our warmest congratulations!

Gerald Steindl, BSc is a project member of the Sparkling Science 2.0 project "Smart Sport Assistance" at the Department of Sport and Human Movement Science, Centre for Sport Science and University Sports, University of Vienna, from which the idea for this research project originated.
