VERITAS (http://veritas-project.eu/) aims to develop, validate and assess tools for built-in accessibility support at all stages of ICT and non-ICT product development, including specification, design, development and testing. The goal is to introduce simulationbased and virtual reality testing at all stages of assistive technologies product design and development into the automotive, smart living spaces (buildings & construction, domotics), workplace, ehealth and infotainment applications areas. The goal is to ensure that future products and services are being systematically designed for all people including those with disabilities and functional limitations as well as older people. Furthermore, VERITAS plans to promote its results to the appropriate standards organisations for consideration and potential adoption and also to make them available through an open framework.

Project number: 247765
Project acronym: VERITAS
Project full title: Virtual and Augmented Environments and Realistic User Interactions To achieve Embedded Accessibility DesignS
Starting date: 1 January 2010
Duration: 48 Months
VERITAS is an Integrated Project (IP) within the 7th Framework Programme, Theme FP7-ICT-2009.7.2, Accessible and Assistive ICT

    • Short Profile Title: Virtual and augmented Environments and Realistic user Interactions To achieve embedded Accessiblility designS Programme: 7. Framework Theme: FP7-ICT-2009.7.2 Accessible and Assistive ICT Type: IP (large-scale integrating project) Subprojects: 4 (Models – Tools – Applications – Horizontal activities) Duration: 48 months (01/2010 - 12/2013) Partnership: 31 partners from 11 European countries (Industry, Research Institutes, Universities, Associations) Budget: 11,7 Mio € total / 8 Mio € funding20th September 2010 2nd VERITAS User Forum meeting Fraunhofer IAO

    • Motivation and Background 16% of the population over 65 in the 27 EU countries Up to 15% of the population across the European Union have a disabilities, such as a visual, hearing, speech, cognitive, or motor impairment Around 20% of people over 50 experience severe physical disabilities Spending on pensions, heath and long–term care will rise sharply over the next 20 years20th September 2010 2nd VERITAS User Forum meeting Fraunhofer IAO
    • Targeted Application Domains Automotive Smart Living Spaces Workplace Infotainment Personal Health Care and Wellbeing20th September 2010 2nd VERITAS User Forum meeting Fraunhofer IAO
    • Who benefits from VERITAS? Designers and developers Use (Users) Use VERITAS products tools to developed design/ with develop VERITAS products tools by… for… Beneficiaries (End users)20th September 2010 2nd VERITAS User Forum meeting Fraunhofer IAO
    • Addressed Impairments Blind and low-vision impairments Motor impairments Cognitive impairments Hearing impairments Speech impairments20th September 2010 2nd VERITAS User Forum meeting Fraunhofer IAO
    • VERITAS Approach User Centered Design Iterative development and testing  Virtual user models: Iterative development using feedback from a multisensorial platform  Simulation models: Iterative development with feedback from real developers from the five VERITAS application sectors  Iterative pilots: Feedback from real users Comprehensive risk analysis and mitigation strategy. Involvement of key industrial partners in all stages so as to ensure the applicability of the developed algorithms and systems28/04/2010 20th September 2010 CERTH/ITI 2nd VERITAS User Forum meeting Fraunhofer IAO
    • Project Outcomes Open library of user models (incl. VR Models) Open Simulation Platform (OSP) for simulation and testing in product planning and development Extensive list of tools for supporting accessibility testing at all stages of development for 5 domains Methodologies for introducing the VERITAS simulation and testing framework for evaluating ICT and non-ICT products Framework for immersive virtual user simulation and testing Measures and metrics for software accessibility through VR simulation Innovative concepts for ambient, multi-device, universally accessible multimodal interfaces through VR simulation20th September 2010 2nd VERITAS User Forum meeting Fraunhofer IAO

    • User and Task Models  User Models  Abstract User Model  Describes a disability  Generic Virtual User Model  Describes the set of users having a specific disability,  The affected primitive tasks and  The affected primitive tasks’ parameters  Binary (ex. Abnormal step rhythm: Yes)  Range of values (ex.

Abnormal step rhythm: Yes)  Specific values (ex. Gait cycle : 2.1 sec)  Task Model  Describes how a complex task can be divided into primitive tasks that have to be executed sequentially. 20th September 2010 2nd VERITAS User Forum meeting Fraunhofer IAO
