Welcome to the Real-World Lab Accessibility
We are concerned with the design, development and evaluation of novel technologies that can be leveraged by disabled people to lead self-determined lives. By examining the interplay between digital technology and physical space, our work also asks whether and how the presence of technology can enhance our usage and experience in space. The goal of the Real-World Lab Accessibility is to open up new perspectives on technology, spaces, and their potential to appreciate human diversity, thereby contributing to more inclusive societies.
We work in close collaboration with ACCESS@KIT, the Center for Digital Accessibility and Assistive Technology that supports disabled students in their studies at KIT.
