Assistive Technology Rapid Integration & Construction Set
FP7 ICT-2009.7.2, Accessible and Assistive ICT, Grant Agreement No. 247730)
In the middle of the year 2010 IMA joined the project consortium of the FP7 project AsTeRICS - Assistive Technology Rapid Integration & Construction Set.
The main objective of the project is to develop a support platform that will facilitate and improve communication resources of people with motor disabilities in their upper limbs.
The goal of the AsTeRICS Project is to develop a construction set for assistive technologies which can be adapted to the motor abilities of end-users. AsTeRICS is intended to allow access to different devices such as PCs, cell phones and smart home devices, with all of them integrated in a platform adapted as much as possible to each user.
The target group for this Project are adults (18+ years old) with motor disabilities in the upper limbs, with no cognitive impairment, no perceptual limitations (neither visual nor auditory) and with basic skills in using technologies such as PCs, cell phones, electronic agendas, etc.
