Computing power, communications and Internet access are becoming increasingly untethered from the desktop and moving to the realm of portable, wireless technology. Devices such as smart phones have become affordable and ubiquitous, and offer not only substantial computational power but also telephone and Internet access, as well as a variety of sensors such as cameras, GPS, digital compass, accelerometer, and RFID readers. While the overwhelming majority of such devices are being marketed primarily to able-bodied users (mainly young, tech-savvy people without obvious disabilities), there is enormous potential to harness their capabilities for use in assistive technology. As of yet, however, this potential remains largely untapped, with very few commercially available systems of this type.
The purpose of this special thematic session is to bring together experts in assistive technology and computer science to discuss possible applications of portable and mobile technology for persons with all types of disabilities and limitations, including visual, auditory and cognitive deficits and motor/mobility problems.
Topics include (but are not limited to):
