Standardization

Fulvio Corno, Politecnico di Torino

Review Recommendation #2


Recommendation 2: Consistently with the contract, the objectives of the
COGAIN NoE of
Annex I and the WP2, it is recommended that the consortium
gives the second highest priority to the design and implementation of a concrete
approach to standardization aiming to fostering the interoperability between the
hardware and software components enabling gaze
-
based communications. This
approach should include, but is not limited to:


derive a realistic work plan from the "Standardization roadmap" proposed so far;


defines the landmarks and success indicators towards the concerned standardization
bodies;


the detailed assessment of the resources necessary for the standardization approach;


the priorities of the standardization strategy as far as gaze
-
based communication is
concerned;


anticipation of how the COGAIN Association will replace the COGAIN NoE for the
continuation of the standardization work that must be integrated into the agreement
mentioned in the recommendation #1 above.

Standards: Time and Effort


COGAIN NoE has a limited timespan


COGAIN Association has limited resources (at least initially)


We need a lean, cost
-
effective, process


Open to external collaborations


Open to inputs from user communities and industries


Exploiting the expertise of the partners

Transitioning to the Association


Standardization Roadmap v3.0 designed to be compatible with
the COGAIN Association constraints


COGAIN Association is going to incorporate the
Standardization Roadmap into its Research Roadmap


COGAIN NoE sent a proposed Roadmap to the Association


Mainly editorial and formal changes


On
-
going activities will continue, at least on the 4 main topics

Review Recommendation #2


Standardization Roadmap v3.0 very realistic

derive a realistic work plan from the
"Standardization roadmap" proposed so far


Success with CIE. No other relevant bodies
foreseen according to the priorities.

define landmarks and success indicators towards
standardization
bodies


Working
-
group based, no overhead, according to
yearly budget

the standardization approach

replace the COGAIN

85 years old

75% of the maximum heart rate with Colour race on floor



86% of the maximum heart rate with Stepper


Estimated maximum heart rate: 220


age.



“When doing rehabilitation not everything is as much fun. Then it is nice to
have a little competition. When having gone through a heart attack it is not
always desired to go down to the gym and exercise. There has to be
something to “spice it up”, and I think that the tiles makes this possible”.
