On Smart-Care Services: Studies of Visually Impaired Users in Living Contexts
- Smart care technology is any sensor based technology used to aid and support human independent living. Such technologies offer new potential and can give rise to new problems for making the technology accessible to users. In this work we focus on integrated services for people with visual impairment. Web based information services have already been adapted for people with varying degrees of disability. What is needed now is a service oriented architecture that integrates information services with smart care technology such as sensor devices that generate data for input, processing, storage and query.
