Regional Initiatives

  • Assistive Technologies for Elderly

    The objective of this project is to provide an open platform of digital assistance dedicated to aging in place. This project is in collaboration with researchers in Cognitive Science (Bordeaux University) and the UDCCAS Gironde (Union Départementale des Centres Communaux d’Action Sociale) managing elderly care. This project will include a need analysis, the development of new assistive applications and their experimental validation.

    This work is funded by CARSAT Aquitaine (“Caisse d'Assurance Retraite et de la Santé au Travail”).

  • Cognitive Assistance for Supporting the Autonomy of Persons with Intellectual Disabilities

    The objective of this project is to develop assistive technologies enabling people with intellectual disabilities to gain independence and to develop self-determined behaviors, such as making choices and taking decisions. This project is in collaboration with the “Handicap et Système Nerveux” reserach group (EA 4136, Bordeaux University), the TSA Chair of UQTR (Université du Québec à Trois-Rivières) in Psychology and the Association Trisomie 21 Gironde (Down’s Syndrom). The TSA chair has recently designed and built a smart apartment that is used to conduct experimental evaluation of our assistive technologies in realistic conditions.
