A context aware architecture to support people with partial visual impairments

By Fernandes, J.; Laranjeira, J.; Novais, P.; Marreiros, G.; Neves, J.



Nowadays there are several systems that help people with disabilities on their quotidian tasks. The visual impairment is a problem that affects several people in their tasks and movements. In this work we propose an architecture capable of processing information from the environment and suggesting actions to the user with visual impairments, to avoid a possible obstacle. This architecture intends to improve the support given to the user in their daily movements. The idea is to use speculative computation to predict the users’ intentions and even to justify the reactive or proactive users’ behaviors.
