Tata Elxsi wins iF Designs Award for design excellence

For Mixed Reality (MR) Based Smart Assistive Wearable Devices

Tata Elxsi has won this year's iF Design Award, a world-renowned award for design excellence. Tata Elxsi won this award for its innovative and exceptional design concept for Mixed Reality (MR) Based Smart Assistive Wearable Devices.

These devices have been designed by the company to help people with special needs such as Autism or Alzheimer's to deal with social situations, which they might otherwise find difficult. The system is deliberately discreet and the clever use of audio ensures others in the environment are less aware of the support being provided. For example, the device may help people recognise a person whose name they may have forgotten, or support the individual in stressful situations by playing music or pre-recorded calming phrases.

The devices employ Mixed Reality by taking information from input devices like discrete wearable cameras driving facial and environment recognition and microphones then feeding back to the user using earphones / ear buds and sound collars. These devices in turn help users to participate in social interactions by giving them subtle guides in the form of audio cues.
