    As part of the Design for a Cause Design Challenge, Sean and Connor Miller, build the ultimate smart trike. Their goal is to inspire others to embark on an assistive technology build of their own or to find a way to bring their ideas to life in order to make the world a better place.  The inspiration for the project is Sean's wife, who was diagnosed with MS when Connor was two years old.  They'll showcase the Arduino MKR1000 IoT kit as a tool for prototyping when coupled to mechanical components.  Features of the smart trike include speed sensor and interlock, pedal sensor and interlock, proximity sensor and interlock, garage door opener receiver, braking limit switch and interlock, tilt sensor and interlock, and sd card output to study sensor data and calibrate for best ride quality and safety.
