ECOMODE (Event-Driven Compressive Vision for Multimodal Interaction with Mobile Devices) is a project funded by the European Commission (H2020) that aims at designing and implementing touch-less mobile devices usable also by older adults and visually impaired people. By exploiting the recently matured biologically-inspired technique of event-driven compressive sensing (EDC) of audio-visual information, interaction with ECOMODE technology is based on mid-air gestures and vision-assisted speech recognition.

Within ECOMODE, the FBK-i3 team focuses on understanding the specificities and needs of older users with mild visual and speech disabilities due to age, implementing a User-Centered Inclusive Design process. The participation of the end-users in all the different phases of the design process consists also in their involvement through iterative loops of evaluation and validation of the ECOMODE technology.
