8:06 pm
>> you can also download the app off of our website right here. >>host: are you the science teacher quick. >> yes. >>host: i have no idea what this is. >> but in particular they came up with all the technology it was their idea to develop and to reach out on social media they fully understood how to help students. >> did you learn from these students because you did not grow up with this technology. >> yes i learned a lot because technology is integral in their life.
8:07 pm
>>host: having grown up with technology and for those types of issues. >> i was worried about our personal devices so i was freaking out about it. it is very dangerous. >> i do worry but but i know wherever i go i don't have to

8:11 pm
>> basically to make sure everything is going okay. >> have you thought about connecting missiles in half? >> we don't take it into that space we are keeping a very simple there is nothing complex about it. and then that's all you have to do for it. there is not a lot to that. without any other outside. >> congratulations. >> three more award winners.
8:12 pm
what did you win your price for? >> to help the community with school bus safety so we did. use a wire transmitter. so we will get to your app in just a minute but is this correct? >> know this is on the bus.
8:13 pm
>> usb is connected to the phone and then they can download this to their device they put what county and what school they are. so then they go to google maps that will give them directions to where they are supposed to go. and then i can tell them to be on time and then to use wireless signal.
8:14 pm
>>host: so what happens on the side when the driver connects? >> they have the wireless signal and then that microcontroller but then the light will flash and at 400 feet it will flash yellow and a 200 feet. >> do that again.
8:15 pm
400 feet the lights will flash yellow. at 30 feet the lights will flash red. and then when the bus pulls away the lights will turn off. >>host: why is it important to turn on the lights on the sign? the main purpose is it tell somebody the bus is coming so they will stop and also when the bus has arrived if there is a substitute bus driver
8:16 pm
then they also know to where to drop the kids off. >>host: has members of congress come over to look at your invention? >> yes if you members of congress and also we met with a few members of congress earlier today talking about our invention. >>host: what did they think? >> they were excited about it and actually the rep read it on - - representative from indiana may introduce a bill. >> at 400 feet the lights will flash yellow at 200 feet and at 30 feet they flash red and when the bus pulls away.

8:19 pm
impaired. and then we developed this smart card to eventually provide enough data to help them understand. >> it doesn't necessarily tell them what to do but to get objective data that tells you the environment whether it is a warm and crowded room it is very loud. not every dog could do this. so the information collected by the app will help to recognize the pattern of the environment and compare that to data of hundreds of other dogs and figure out those patterns and what we can do to
8:20 pm
replicate tha that. >>host: it is like artificial intelligence. >> exactly in a very good way. >> introduce us to king. >>host: hello. can we see what is on her neck? >> it is transmitting data are real-time. for example if she was unsettled that is not a good thing but you want her to be just like this.
8:21 pm
so send her over to be again while we shoot the screen. >>host: so right now. >> we are looking for a dog that is called in the environment like this that might indicate over a period of time to see that during most of this event she was stationary and calm and relaxed despite the humidity and the pressure in the decibel level. >>host: who came up with this idea? >> as a volunteer i have raised puppies. >>host: do you have a sense when they are young?
8:22 pm
>> they all have the potential to make it as a guide dog but but then to match the right puppy to bring out their qualities there are some puppies that will make it no matter what we are trying to help. >>host: did you bring this idea to ibm because of your volunteer work? >> i am the direct line to them. knowing myself and spending time with these dogs and with those genetics to talk about that data as a small not-for-profit to give those
8:23 pm
insights that they needed so we showed that i went to ibm and they loved it and then it made it available and then we started to work with the university with another project and together developed a smart caller - - collar and then use that for evaluation and then in that sense it measures it turns to normal if the puppy goes through successful tests and then i'll
8:24 pm
