John-Ross Barresi | Project & Innovation Coordinator, Senior O&M Specialist, Guide Dogs Victoria
Chen Zhu | IoT Director, ThoughtWorks
In this talk, Chen and John-Ross will share their experiences with ‘Agile Hardware Innovation’, which involves rolling out innovative hardware initiatives through the “Discover, Define and Deliver” process.
When we think about Agile, it is usually in the context of software development, and yet Agile is relevant across many disciplines. Using a recent client example, they will talk about using Agile to create a Smart Cane for Guide Dogs Victoria, plus challenges they faced along the way. 

Guide Dogs Victoria (GDV) is a charity that provides vital support to Australians with impaired vision or blindness, helping them achieve independent mobility. People with low vision face daily challenges, including navigating busy intersections, where they can easily veer outside of the safe crossing zone. This can significantly restrict their ability to travel individually.

ThoughtWorks partnered with GDV to observe and understand the challenges and needs of their clients, before exploring a number of potential prototypes that could be developed to address this issue. Together they designed and built four low fidelity prototypes, helping users ‘line-up’ while preparing to cross the road and providing them with feedback to ensure they stay in the safe crossing zone. After this initial discovery phase, they tested each solution with real users and narrowed the focus to build the most ergonomic and technically feasible solution.
