Summaries

Summary Sentence: Designing technology for a broad audience

Full Summary: Jim Mueller, a researcher with the Rehabilitation Engineering Research Center for Wireless Technologies, demonstrates the need for universal design when designing wireless devices or applications for as broad an audience as possible

This week at the Aware Home Research Initiative seminar lunch:

Simulations: A first-hand, first-eye look at universal designing
Jim Mueller, Wireless RERC (Rehabilitation Engineering Research Center)

This week, we will have Jim Mueller, a researcher with the Rehabilitation Engineering Research Center for Wireless Technologies, speaking about and demonstrating the need for universal design when designing wireless devices or applications for as broad an audience as possible. One of the goals of the Wireless RERC is to make researchers and industry aware of the design considerations necessary to ensure wireless devices can be used by people of all abilities. Those attending will get some hands-on experience through simulations to understand this need.

Since much of our research in the Aware Home Research Initiative is geared toward people with varying ability, this should be a great learning experience and one that could easily extend to your research.

As usual, all students and faculty are welcome to join us.
Please sign up, as mentioned below, if you plan to attend.
