Start date: 01/2010
End date: 12/2012

Description: AsTeRICS will provide a flexible and affordable construction set for realising user driven AT by combining emerging sensor techniques like Brain-Computer Interfaces and computer vision with basic actuators. People with reduced motor capabilities will get a flexible and adaptable technology at hand which enables them to access the Human-Machine-Interfaces (HMI) at the standard desktop but in particular also of embedded systems like mobile phones or smart home devices. AsTeRICS will implement a set of building blocks for the realisation of AT:
Sensors which allow the individual to exploit any controllable body or mind activity for interacting with HMI
Actuators for interfacing to standard IT, to embedded systems and to interact with the environment
An Embedded Computing Platform that can be configured to combine sensors and actuators to tailored AT-solutions which support the full potential of an individual user.
