Assistive Technology Rapid Integration & Construction Set

Project description


Accessible and Assistive ICT

More than 2,6 million people in Europe have problems with their upper limbs and therefore many of them depend on Assistive Technologies (AT) to access a PC or any other ICT, including mobile technology, and to control their environment (to switch on equipment, to open doors etc).
One problem of existing AT devices is that they cannot be adapted or combined to support individual capabilities of the user. Very often, these devices work in a defined setup and their function cannot be changed or applied in different use cases.
The aim of the project has been to develop a prototype for a flexible AT system that provides greater adaptability to specific needs of the user by combining emerging sensor techniques like Brain-Computer Interfaces, gaze-tracking systems etc. People with reduced motor capabilities will get a flexible and adaptable technology at hand which enables them to access the Human-Machine-Interfaces (HMI) at the standard desktop but in particular also of embedded systems like mobile phones or smart home devices.
