Some current projects

  • Diginclude - Digital inkludering i det uppkopplade samhället för grupper med speciella behov. I informationssamhället 3.0 är digital kompetens och förmåga att samspela mellan företag, myndigheter och individer en grundläggande förutsättning för tillväxt och livskvalitet. Detta kräver fungerande tillgång till och förmåga att använda tjänster och information på Internet, även för individer som har svårt att följa med i den tekniska utvecklingen. Offentlig sektor har därvid ett speciellt ansvar för att i enlighet med målen i den digitala agendan särskilt stödja medborgare med begränsad förmåga att tillgodogöra sig samhällets e-tjänster och informationsresurser. Denna problematik berör exempelvis personer med vissa funktionshinder (kognitiva funktionsnedsättningar, dyslexi, synskada, etc), äldre seniorer med normalt nedsatta förmågor eller utlandsfödda med begränsad kunskap om det svenska språket och samhället.
  • The eHealth Diary - Telemonitoring of patients with advanced COPD and heart failure within specialised home care ‐ based on digital pen technology and a health diary form (“the eHealth Diary”) - The eHealth Diary, a 3 year long research study, aims at supporting patients with heart failure and/or COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) and their professional caregivers in specialised homecare through the use of a telehealth system based on digital pen technology. The telehealth system provides the professional caregivers with frequent patient‐reported outcome measures (PROMs) on various symptoms and measurement data for the detection of early signs of deterioration. In the home, patients with advanced heart failure and/or COPD use the digital pen and paper health‐diary forms daily to fill in symptom assessments, intake of p.r.n. medications, and measurement data, e.g. weight, blood pressure, and oxygen saturation. The study will evaluate if the method and system can contribute to earlier detection of patients’ deterioration, and prevention of acute hospital admission. Contact: Dr. Leili Lind.
  • Friendly Reader - Dynamic, variable and user-controlled summaries of documents, developed as one of the winning projects in the Innovation Contest sponsored by The Swedish Post and Telecom Authority (PTS). The service is freely available and combines a design-for-all perspective with an ambition to simplify access to information on the Internet for people with reading difficulties. Contact Professor Arne Jönsson.

  • Sightlence - The aim of this project is to make it easier for developers of information and communication technology to make use of the haptic modality to support people with deafblindness. We aim to explore and develop tools for development and design of haptic user interfaces.The project is financed by the Swedish Post and Telecom Authority (PTS) as one of seven winners in the Innovation Contest 2012. Contact Docent Mattias Arvola.
  • VASS - Mixed reality for integrated learning. The objective for this project is to put mobile augmented reality to the test in regular education with a browser and editor for accessing and editing computer augmented landscapes. The technical development and design builds on the Minnesmark framework developed in the previous project "Augmented Reality in Astrid Lindgren's Landscape". Contact Docent Mattias Arvola.
  • Prolog - Printed Organic Logics for low-cost smart tags. The objective is to provide the market with ultra-low-cost smart tags through the developemnt of printed logic circuits interfacing printed memories, displays and batteries. The project is  coordinated by Acreo Swedish ICT. We contribute component modeling, circuit design and circuit testing. Contact Professor Robert Forchheimer.
  • BoNUS VO - (Brukar och Närståendeportal för Uppföljning och Stöd i Vård och Omsorg.) The project is run together with Linköpings kommun and Phoniro Systems AB and develops a concept for improved communication and coordination of care efforts for elderly supported by the municipality and by relatives. Contact Professor Sture Hägglund.
