Blog: Student Design project: Electronic device to aid in disaster relief operations  

My name is Freddy Weigle I am an Industrial Design (Product Design) student at the Art Institute of Portland in Portland, Oregon. I have read about your all experiences with hurricane Katrina. I was wondering if you all would be willing to share some of your experiences with me. I am working on a project for school that would help people in disaster situations to communicate with family, friends, and rescue/relief personnel.

For one of my Product Design Classes we are creating an electronic device to aid in disaster relief operations / crisis environments. The first part of the process is to see what is needed by the general population/different agencies, improve upon existing technologies, and discover new opportunities. This first part of my research is very broad and is open to new discoveries.

I would appreciate an opportunity to discuss my project with you all.  I would like to get a better understanding of how communications work out under real world circumstances.

My goal is to create a device that would truly help people in disaster / crisis environments.

Please contact me anytime.

Thank You
