Purpose and goal

AAL project aims to develop a hands-free technology that will make it possible for older people (the disabled) to control the computer tool and remote controls with the help of the tongue.

Results and expected effects

A comfortable headset is developed with sensors that detect the tongue positions and movements, allowing the mouse pointer and other commands to make simple and intuitive control. Own capacitive sensors will be produced for optimum cost.

Approach and implementation

End users are involved in the project and testing will be conducted. At the end of the project, one of project partners is ready to take the product, The Cap Mouse to the market.
