Improving Accessibility & Independence for those with Health Conditions and Disability
Aging and disability contribute to a decrease in quality of life. The focus of the summit is a bidirectional dialogue on the opportunities enabled through new technologies and education practices: the advent of virtual reality, autonomous vehicles, robotics, data science, smart materials, 3D printing, and new building practices make new solutions feasible. Researchers and community support groups are invited to present posters or exhibit tables. The summit will be valuable for researchers to form collaborations and for the community to learn what options are on available. Attendees are encouraged to interact with each other and the presenters. Optional tours of the engineering and computer science facilities are available.
- Poster/Exhibit with discussion and panel: 4:00 - 6:00 pm
- Optional: Tour of Engineering and Computer Science laboratories at Discovery Park
