  8. 8. Review Recommendation #2<br />Recommendation 2: Consistently with the contract, the objectives of the COGAIN NoE of Annex I and the WP2, it is recommended that the consortium gives the second highest priority to the design and implementation of a concrete approach to standardization aiming to fostering the interoperability between the hardware and software components enabling gaze-based communications. This approach should include, but is not limited to:<br />derive a realistic work plan from the "Standardization roadmap" proposed so far;<br />defines the landmarks and success indicators towards the concerned standardization bodies;<br />the detailed assessment of the resources necessary for the standardization approach;<br />the priorities of the standardization strategy as far as gaze-based communication is concerned;<br />anticipation of how the COGAIN Association will replace the COGAIN NoE for the continuation of the standardization work that must be integrated into the agreement mentioned in the recommendation #1 above.<br />
  9. 9. Different Problems, Different Solutions<br />
  10. 10. Standards: Time and Effort<br />COGAIN NoE has a limited timespan<br />COGAIN Association has limited resources (at least initially)<br />We need a lean, cost-effective, process<br />Open to external collaborations<br />Open to inputs from user communities and industries<br />Exploiting the expertise of the partners<br />
  11. 11. Transitioning to the Association<br />Standardization Roadmap v3.0 designed to be compatible with the COGAIN Association constraints<br />COGAIN Association is going to incorporate the Standardization Roadmap into its Research Roadmap<br />COGAIN NoE sent a proposed Roadmap to the Association<br />Mainly editorial and formal changes<br />On-going activities will continue, at least on the 4 main topics<br />
  12. 12. Review Recommendation #2<br />
  13. 13. COGAIN Association to develop standard for Infrared Safety – exposure for extended periods of time<br />
  14. 14.
  15. 15. COGAIN Association to develop standard for the measurement of Eye Tracker Accuracy, Precision and Specifications.<br />Technical committee formed<br />15 committee members and <br />many more sub committee members.<br />Lund University has invested a 6 month position to this work. <br />Actively seeking funding<br />The first committee meeting held on 21st august, in Marseille, to coincide with ECEM 2011<br />Were invited to give a plenary talk on this COGAIN standard at ECEM too, followed by a panel discussion.<br />

Then it is nice to have a little competition. When having gone through a heart attack it is not always desired to go down to the gym and exercise. There has to be something to “spice it up”, and I think that the tiles makes this possible”.<br /> Cardiac patient<br />Heart News Magazine referring to the hospital report<br />Sygehus Fyn Hospital report, 2007 [in Danish]<br />+ CNN & WIRED<br />
