Human-Computer Interface Based on IoT Embedded Systems for Users with Disabilities

Mulfari, D., A. Celesti, M. Fazio, and M. Villari, "Human-Computer Interface Based on IoT Embedded Systems for Users with Disabilities", Internet of Things. User-Centric IoT - First International Summit IoT360, vol. 150: Springer International Publishing, pp. 376-383, 2015.

This paper investigates how low-cost embedded systems can be tailored to support the interaction between users with disabilities and computers. The main idea is to implement several software solutions for assistive technology to deploy on the user embedded device. When such a device is connected to a whichever computing system (e.g. through an USB connection), it acts as HID (Human Interface Device) peripheral (e.g., mouse and keyboard), so that the user can work on the computer without any previous con guration setup to adapt the behavior of the computing system to the user disability.
