Human Interface Solutions

Barron Associates has established a set of human interface solutions that are focused on individuals with unique needs, such as those dealing with disability or specialized job functions. These solutions employ innovations such as motion tracking and gesture recognition to discern user intent. Additionally, Barron Associates has leveraged advances in the field of haptics to optimize system functionality and user experience. Barron Associates’ human interface solutions include the following:

  • a blink detection system to provide a communication interface for patients with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS)
  • glove-enabled computer operations designed for astronauts during extra-vehicular activities
  • a multi-modal mobile device interface that provides an on-the-go stereo-tactile, audio, and high-contrast visual map of interior spaces for individuals who are blind or visually impaired.
