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

  19. 19. METHODOLOGY • Identify task to be analysed in application areas (hierarchical task analysis) • Break each task down into sequential subtasks Action oriented • Define the very primitive tasks approach • This focuses on e.g. the mental processes which underlie observable behaviour, e.g. decision makingCogn., behav. and problem solving.and psychol.approaches • Beneficiaries • Partners in application areasCrosscheck with …20th September 2011 MCA &CERTH/HIT

  29. 29. APPLICATION SCENARIOSDESIGNERS Automotive  Paul has a company specialised in adjusting vehicles for use by people with disabilities.  His team has extensive expertise in this field; however they still depend heavily on personalisation case by case since every user has a different set of needs.  Therefore, he works together with driver rehabilitation specialists who perform comprehensive evaluations to identify the adaptive equipment most suited to the needs of the driver with disabilities.  He is having a very difficult time to find and pay beneficiaries in order to get measurements to implement in his models.  The needs of the users are changing and in order to catch up, he has to update his models constantly.  In order to create and simulate his designs, Paul is using CAD files in RAMSIS environment.  Ever since he was introduced to VERITAS he can design by using the embedded user models design that are up to date and satisfy the needs of his clients.20th September 2011 MCA &CERTH/HIT
  30. 30. APPLICATION SCENARIOSDESIGNERS Smart living spaces  Robert is managing an architect office in downtown Brussels, and is specialised in the design and architecture of public buildings.  For this, he also works together with a Belgian construction company that is specialized in constructing accessible buildings.  This year they asked him to design a rehabilitation centre for tetraplegics and people with various upper and lower limb disabilities.  This is a challenge for Robert since in such a building the accessible navigation is not enough, also accessible domotic applications must be installed and maybe rooms for socialisation inspired from the modern workplaces.20th September 2011 MCA &CERTH/HIT
  31. 31. APPLICATION SCENARIOSDESIGNERS Infotainment  Karen is a game developer specialised in developing games mainly oriented to specific groups of people with disabilities.  In a new project she has been requested to develop a game that was “visible” and “distinguishable” by visually and hearing impaired people, as well as for people with slight cognitive impairments.  Karen’s team has already undertaken a project about collaborative games for elderly and they are looking for a way to develop the optimum accessible design with the least cost and effort.20th September 2011 MCA &CERTH/HIT
  32. 32. APPLICATION SCENARIOSDESIGNERS Healthcare  James is the lead designer for a company specialised in designing and producing interfaces for a wide variety of ehealth applications, either for fixed interfaces (wall mounted) or for mobile applications.  Mobile e-health (M-health) applications and services are a growing market for the company, and James oversees that any interfaces that are deployed for these ehealth applications meet the accessibility standards defined within VERITAS.  Recently, James’s team was asked by anorganisation to design an accessible infusion pump interface that had to address the needs of people that due to illness have an increased number of disabilities, ranging from mobility to cognitive impairments both for a mobile and for a health coach application.20th September 2011 MCA &CERTH/HIT
  33. 33. APPLICATION SCENARIOSBENEFICIARIES Automotive.  Julie is a housewife with 2 children and is using a wheelchair for the past 5 years due to a car accident.  She is looking for a new car that will fit her abilities.  She is having a test drive with a car that has been designed with VERITAS. She is entering the car, getting into the driver’s seat, starting the engine, putting the seatbelt on, reading the information on the dashboard, changing gears, switching on the lights, reaching the car radio and changing stations, opening the window.  When Julie finishes the ride, she goes back to the store, happy that she could manage using the car.20th September 2011 MCA &CERTH/HIT
  34. 34. APPLICATION SCENARIOSBENEFICIARIES Automotive.  Paul is a 50 year old lawyer with moderate lower limp impairments.  He is very into motorcycles from when he was young and now he rides a scooter.  He has recently driven a scooter designed with VERITAS.  He could easily get on it, park it onto a side stand, get off, indicate direction.s  This scooter has a collision avoidance system and navigation, which were operating well and were perfectly understandable, despite Paul’s limited knowledge with this kind of technologies.20th September 2011 MCA &CERTH/HIT
  35. 35. APPLICATION SCENARIOSBENEFICIARIES Smart living places  David is a 30 year old civil engineer whose wife is totally blind for 5 years now.  He has done many steps towards designing for blind people, although it has often proven to be cumbersome and difficult to achieve the set goals.  He recently build his own house, designing it, using also the VERITAS plugin.  Using VERITAS, he succeeded in building a fully accessible house, where his wife can easily move around inside the house, use the washroom facilities (WC, bathroom), use the light switches, handle the oven and program it, etc.20th September 2011 MCA &CERTH/HIT
  36. 36. APPLICATION SCENARIOSBENEFICIARIES Workspaces  John is a 55 year old public servant with upper limp impairments.  He works in a very old office that was recently renovated. The architect office in charge of the renovations used VERITAS.  This solved a number of problems John had with the overall design of his workspace.  In addition, John’s employer also took the opportunity to enhance the office software for John, using assistive technology (dictating software, etc.).20th September 2011 MCA &CERTH/HIT
  37. 37. APPLICATION SCENARIOSBENEFICIARIES Infotainment  Jack is a 55 year old man with moderate Cataract.  He loves playing online multiplayer games on his computer but most games require that he can see a lot of visual information on screen in order to play, which is difficult due to his impairment.  The latest game he is playing, however, was designed using VERITAS and has bigger graphics, easier menus, more distinctive shapes, and also includes an option to describe different game menu options, game situations and objects by “screen- reading the relative information”.20th September 2011 MCA &CERTH/HIT
  38. 38. APPLICATION SCENARIOSBENEFICIARIES Healthcare  Jason and Mary are an elderly couple that need to be closely monitored by the doctor.  They cannot drive a car and it is difficult for them to go to the hospital very often.  With VERITAS remote patient solutions, they now can stay at their home and be monitored remotely by the doctor.  Additionally, they are using the Medical Education and Health Coach application that allows them to exchange messages with the doctor, search for medical news and get possible warnings.20th September 2011 MCA &CERTH/HIT
