Sept 2021

The Australian Good Design Awards continues a long and proud legacy of showcasing the very best in design and innovation to a global audience. The Awards are one of the longest-running international design awards, promoting excellence in design and innovation since 1958. Recognised by the World Design Organization (WDO) as Australia’s peak international design endorsement and promotion program, the Awards represent the diverse spectrum of design with 12 specific Design Disciplines covering more than 30 Categories and Sub-Categories.

The Good Design Award Gold accolade is awarded to entries that have not only met the criteria for Good Design, but exceed them.

HalleyAssist® establishes a research project with Swinburne University of Technology

Research project, Swinburne University of Technology

The purpose of this project is to improve the ability of HalleyAssist® to detect unusual patterns of behaviour. By studying data generated by HalleyAssist® sensors during normal operation, we aim to obtain insights so we are better able to detect unusual patterns of sensor behaviour. Such patterns may indicate that the person using the solution is unwell or otherwise incapacitated. The primary activity of this phase is to evaluate the data collected from the sensors and evaluate against a number of models:

  • Anomaly detection based on simple models involving single or limited sensors
  • Anomaly detection based more complex models and aggregates of sensor

Data will be analysed and used to improve the design of future releases of the solution. Summaries of the data may be published in journals or presented at conferences. In such cases, only anonymous summarised data will be included.

Challenges of an ageing population

Research publication, Parliament of Australia

This publication provides important projections and statistics of the rapid increase in the number of people aged 65-84 years in Australia’s population by 2022, and how we must look at reforming aged care to meet demand. It covers community based care, financing models, regulation and planning, aged care workforce and future prospects within the sector.
