Built-in accessibility assessment and interoperability architectures in products of the future

1122, 28/09/2010 (16:00-17:30)

Interoperability architectures provide adaptive interfaces and modern accessibility evaluation approaches for the design and development of products of the future.

The e-inclusion market traditionally incorporates advances in existing products, and this session examines the challenges and opportunities when designing such products. It presents interoperable architectures that provide adaptive interfaces and cover modern accessibility evaluation approaches for all stages of production, specification, design, development and testing. It will look at past and current projects and also focus on the future of accessible environment design as an option to single product design strategies (e.g. interoperability from one environment to another, such as home, transport, etc.). The aim is to maximise the results of future European R&D in the area.

A very nice topic. Accessibility should definitely be an issue at design time and built in early and not as a late addon.

The development of living labs design environments seems to be a very coherent way of developing interactive digital system for the population. It can be very interesting to further explore the implications of this approach to the future of accessible tools and applications in such design environment.
