AsTeRICS & AEGIS Presenter: Edwige Pissaloux (UPMC, FR)Consortium :- KI-I (Austria)- FHTW (Austria) Project start : Jan 2010- UCY (Cyprus) Project end : Dec 2012- UPMC France)- StarLab (Spain)- INGEMA (Spain)- HARPO (Poland)- Sensory (UK)- IMA (Tchequi)
AsTeRICS Goal• Goal of AsTeRICS project design & evaluate with „primary and secondary users“ an adaptable and scalable system supporting also unconventional peripherals (BCI, vision, etc) for (upper limb) motor impaired interactions AsTeRICS concept ACS (AsTeRICS Configuration Set)
AsTeRICS system main characteristics• flexibilty in setting up a workable and convenient device set for person with disability• adaptive configurations to specific needs evolution in time• basic configurations for standard uses• support several unconventional – sensors – actuators for user interaction• facilitate access to various devices such as PC, cell phones, smart home,…
AsTeRICS & AEGISAEGIS - (Open Accessibility Everywhere: Groundwork, Infrastructure, Standards)a) S = standardsAEGIS aims° Policy development for accessible technologies (GUI)° “propose results of the project to the appropriate standards organizations for adoption”AsTeRICS = contribution to standardsb) AsTeRICS ° brings accessibility to ICT via unconventional peripherals ° allows new adaptable accessibility models ° creates new accessibility opportunities (ambient and ART) ° sets standard for technical interoperabilityc) AsTeRICS & AEGIS ° AsTeRICS could serve as a demonstrator how people with severe motor disabilities can interact with AEGIS-based GUIs.
