One of the distinctive graduation projects was a “Fire Alarm System for the Deaf” by Khadija Mohammed Isa. The project is based on creating a device to alert the deaf in the event of a fire, through a microphone that senses high sounds such as a loud alarm or repeated words (e.g. Fire …. Fire). This device can translate these sounds into vibrations and lighting as well as sending a text message to the deaf phone warning of a fire.
