SelfLens: A personal assistive technology to support the independence of people with special needs in reading information on food items
Galesi G., Giunipero L., Leporini B., Pagliucoli F., Quatraro A., Verdi G.
Grocery shopping or handling food items (e.g. packets, boxes, etc.) can be a very difficult task for people with special needs. Object labels may contain much information that can be difficult to read because the data shown is a lot, and the text is difficult to read by many people. Blind people are unable to get that information autonomously, and many sighted persons (e.g. elderly people and visually-impaired) may have a lot of difficulty in reading labels. Several tools or applications are available on the market or have been proposed in the literature to support this type of activity (e.g. barcode or QR code reading), but they are limited and may require specific skills by the user.
Moreover, repeatedly using an application to read label contents or to get additional information on a product can require numerous actions on a touch-screen device. This can make their use inaccessible or unusable for many users, especially while shopping or cooking. In this work, a portable tool is proposed to support people in simply reading the contents of labels and getting additional information, while they are at home or at the shop. Our study aims to propose a portable assistive technology which can be used by everyone both at home and in the shopping, independently from the personal skills and without requiring no smartphone or complex device, and that is a low-cost solution for the user. Such a product could be very useful for the people independence in a period like that one we are living due to the lockdown required by the Covid-19 situation.Source: ICCHP 2020 - 17th International Conference on Computers Helping People with Special Needs, pp. 526–533, Lecco, Italy, 09-11 September 2020

SelfLens: a portable tool to facilitate all people in getting information on food items
Galesi G., Giunipero L., Leporini B., Verdi G.
Independently selecting food items while shopping, or storing and cooking food items correctly can be a very difficult task for people with special needs. Product labels on food packaging contain an ever-increasing amount of information, which can also be in a variety of languages. The amount of information and also the features of the text can make it difficult or impossible to read, in particular for those with visual impairments or the elderly. Several tools or applications are available on the market or have been proposed to support this type of activity (e.g. barcode or QR code reading), but they are limited and may require the user to have specific digital skills. Moreover, repeatedly using an application to read the label contents can require numerous steps on a touch-screen, and consequently be time-consuming. In this work, a portable tool is proposed to support people in reading the contents of labels and acquiring additional information, while they are using the item at home or shopping at the supermarket. The aim of our study is to propose a simple portable assistive technology tool which 1) can be used by anyone, regardless of their digital personal skills 2) does not require a smartphone or complex device, 3) is a low-cost solution for the user.Source: AVI'20 - International Conference on Advanced Visual Interfaces, Ischia Island, Italy, 28 September - 02 October, 2020

The purpose of this deliverable is to indicate the priorities in research and development of the technological areas considered by the project in the near future. In particular, after recalling the main results achieved in the project, we have considered the main relevant technological trends and then we have focused on particularly interesting evolutions in the area of service front ends: end user development for context-dependent applications, social and context-aware service support, and adaptive support for the elderly people.Source: Project report, SERENOA, Deliverable D1.3.3, 2013
