Over the last twenty years, the Internet has brought a revolution in connecting people through the world, regardless of where they live. Today, the Internet connects objects to objects, and people to objects. The Internet of Things - with home automation, customized health care, better management of everyday tasks, transportation and energy consumption - provides an extraordinary opportunity for persons with disabilities and seniors to live independent and fulfilling lives longer and in better comfort.
The 2015 M-enabling Summit in Washington, D.C. (June 1 & 2, 2015) focused on those promises, and presentations by experts from industry, users and apps developers showed that they are quickly becoming a reality.
G3ict is proud to present its latest White Paper, “The Internet of Things: New Promises for Persons with Disabilities,” researched in cooperation and with the support of AT&T. Drawing on interviews with key stakeholders, the White Paper explores how the Internet of Things will be a game changer for persons with disabilities and seniors in the coming years.
The G3ict White Paper Business-Case Series documents innovative accessibility solutions and good practices with real-world case studies for users and organizations seeking to improve the accessibility of their information technology, applications and services.
