We are working on a solution that will give 2.5 Million people with deafblindness in the EU the possibility of taking a more active part in the society,

The project SUITCEYES aims to create more interaction and communication possibilities for people with deafblindness. To afford this, the smart, adaptable, haptic, individualized interface will:

  • Extend the environmental perception and the localization of the user
  • Enlarge the communication space via a haptic language
  • Enhance learning and the users engagement by integrating Gamification and mediated social interaction

Based on machine learning, sensor technologies, image and signal processing, psychophysics and affective computing a smart textile will be developed to enlarge the communication space of people with deafblindness!
