Service Learning Experiences in the Bachelor's Degree in Telematic Engineering

Final project - Mobile application for the Transfusion Centre and Tissue Bank

  • Coordinator: Montse García Famoso (montse.garcia@urv.cat)
  • Community organization: Transfusion Centre and Tissue Bank (BTS)
  • Summary: The objective of this collaboration realized the course 2013-14 was to develop an application for mobile devices that can.
    - Provide information about donation centers and campaigns.
    - Try to increase the number of donations.
  • Students were defined, designed and implemented a multiplatform mobile application. The main characteristic of this mobile application is that it allows users to access services currently offered through the social organization website.
  • You can listen to the experience in Tarragona Ràdio

Final project - Mobile application for people with cerebral palsy

  • Coordinator: César Mauri Loba (cesar.mauri@urv.cat)
  • Community organization: Provincial Association of Cerebral Paralysis (APPC)
  • Summary: The project, realized during the course 2013-14, aimed to develop a mobile application that improves physical accessibility, specifically in direct access, to the touch screen of Android devices. It was developed in collaboration with people with cerebral palsy who validated the APPC from a technical and social standpoint. The result was published under an open and free source license. 

Final Project - Application for mobile devices to care for children with autism who are lost

  • Coordinator: Maria Ferré Bergadà (maria.ferre@urv.cat)
  • Community organization: Associació Astafanias, Asociación Internacional de Policías Tarragona (IPA)
  • Summary: Autism, also known as Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), although it affects differently, gives rise to communication difficulties. This means that, especially in the case of children in situations where emergency services are involved, circumstances arise that hinder the performance of different bodies. This Service Learning experience was based on supporting the design of an information system that reinforces the protocol of action of emergency services and security forces when children with autism were involved. In the course 2016-17 two students, from the Degree in Computer Engineering and the Degree in Telematics Engineering, designed a web application and a mobile app that facilitates the interaction between these services, the children and their environment, family and tutors.
