Five students supported by an IEEE program used a VR system to create a fun and inexpensive way to treat a vision problem in young people.
Since its inception, EPICS in IEEE has sought to show the benefits of empowering students to work with local service organizations to engineer and implement solutions for their communities’ unique challenges. One example is a virtual reality project to treat binocular dysfunction being led by five New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) students.
