Austin Schroll, a senior mechanical engineering student at Western Kentucky University from LaRue County, won The Governor’s Innovation Award for the most technologically significant entry at “Idea State U.”
Schroll’s entry, Audio Eyez, has developed an easy to use and affordable audio assisting navigational device for the vision impaired and legally blind. The device will improve the user’s quality of life by allowing independent navigation in daily activities that they usually would not be able to achieve due to their disability.
