In celebration of National Science and Technology Week, the Department of Science and Technology (DOST), a Philippine government lead organization, annually hosts Science Nation, a five day exhibit of inventions, science projects, and technology innovations from around the Philippines. This year’s event was held at SMX Convention Center, Pasay City, from July 24 to 28.
FEU Tech participates in this event annually. Its contribution this year was an exhibit of student projects. On display was a robotic arm controlled by hand and arm movements; an Android app that accesses CCTV systems at Metro Rail Transit stations to measure passenger volume and alert users of heavy pedestrian traffic and train crowding; and an advanced wearable obstacle detector for the blind.
