Research Group Assistive Technology Lab

For the development of demand-oriented human-computer systems, special software engineering methods and tools are needed. The research group designs and develops adaptive and assistive systems, considering specific personal limitations (e.g. by age or disability) and requirements (e.g. in work life).
