Meta Design Lab, Lee Kwan Yew Center for Innovative Cities, Changi General Hospital
The project used primary-source data such as public space observation (both human and using AI), interviews and life-logging on seniors to investigate the relationship between the built environment and the levels of physical activity of residents, with a specific focus on promoting walking among the elderly. From this data and other related projects conducted by Dr. Belinda Yuen’s team, we aimed to build a guide of best practices to promote elderly wellness in the community though urban configuration and design, and to transform these into urban design interventions.
I was project coordinator for the computer vision aspect of the project, and liaised with multiple stakeholders such as Changi General Hospital and the Tampines Town Council. I also performed site visits and camera installation at multiple locations. Much of my focus was in creating proofs-of-concept using computer vision techniques for crowd estimation activity identification, gait analysis and physical health assessment from body posture.
