The 2011 application design contest has been inspired and sponsored by members of the Autonomie project, a consortium of industry and research partners who are working to provide technology solutions that facilitate participation in daily life by persons suffering from handicaps, notably the sight impaired and blind.
The OpenWorld design contest, however, is open to project proposals for technology that assists persons with handicaps or limiting medical conditions including sight, hearing, or mobility impairments.
If you have any questions regarding the project, related technologies, or the topic of human assistance applications, please post them here. We’ll be happy to answer your questions.
Thank you for your contribution to building an open world!
