Research Line 5: Innovative User Interfaces
The access to services provided by ICTs is frequently prevented by the use of “traditional” user interfaces. Recent advancements in sensoring, wireless networking, among other technologies, make possible the development of new kinds of user interfaces able to avoid the barriers imposed by previous interaction systems. These advancements would also be fundamental to develop new types of Assistive Technology that provides access to mainstream devices and services.
