Microcontroller Platform for Accessibility Application Development

A team of faculty and students with NTID’s Center on Access Technology (CAT) have developed the requirements and designed a new common platform (hardware and software), named CAT CLAW, in honor of RIT’s Tiger mascot, provides a cost effective, customizable platform solution for different possible applications that will benefit the deaf, hard-of-hearing, hearing and any other differently enabled community.  The NTID CAT CLAW is currently being used in several different applications.  For a “best practice” approach to teaching a microcontroller, a variety of real-life examples and analogies can be given to help make that cognitive connection for the student.
