  • The goal of the OPALI project is to develop an Open Platform for Assisted Living targeting users with cognitive disabilities. It is a cross-disciplinary project combining expertise in (1) Computer Science focusing in development of applications orchestrating networked devices and (2) Psychology focusing in assistive technologies for users with cognitive disabilities. Furthermore, this project will leverage a unique research vehicle created by the University of Trois-Rivières consisting of a full-fledged apartment equipped with a range of networked devices and dedicated to experimental studies. The outcome of the project will include a large catalog of assistive applications allowing to match each user's project life.
