The NYIT team won third place in the competition for the project, Third Eye, which connected Golden-i to a drone to help workers explore unknown territories. The team will receive a Golden-i headset when the product comes to market, which is expected to be in 2012.
Ziqian Dong, Ph.D., assistant professor of electrical and computer engineering, and Hossein Kashani, Ph.D., associate professor of telecommunications and electrical engineering technology, worked with the students to develop projects.
NYIT students programmed Golden-i to operate a drone which will help workers explore unknown territories. They connected a pivoting camera controlled by voice recognition and head motion to the device. Their proposal would allow guards on surveillance duty to oversee different locations simultaneously for the best performance, efficiency, and productivity.

A bar code scanner is integrated into Golden-i to help workers easily navigate areas and identify items or people associated with a database. The project explains four potential uses of this application:
“Working with Golden-i has been an extraordinary experience only available through the education at NYIT. It has also shown me that I have the ability, skills, and confidence for work outside of the educational classroom. Being able to work with a product before it is on the market is a huge milestone. It is simply thrilling to know that the work I have been doing has great potential to be a part of the final project.”
