The aim of the DAAN project is the implementation of a technical platform for the systematic support of people whose cognitive performance has decreased or is physically restricted. In a learning phase, the system adjusts itself to the action sequences of the respective user, and thereupon submits – in the support phase – in an unobtrusive way suggestions for possible actions and action alternatives. In addition, the proposed system provides alternative (e.g., tactile) interfaces to the use of technical devices in the home environment (e.g., telephone or TV), which otherwise would not be usable due to physical limitations.
