  4. Why Go It Alone? The Use of Public Resources to Enhance Computer Accessibility for Individuals with Cognitive Disabilities

    SBC: Life Technologies            Topic: N/A

    Individuals with cognitive disabilities represent one of the fastest growing disability groups in the U. S. The potential for computer technology to increase social integration for this population is well-documented. However, cognitive and financial barriers frequently preclude the acquisition and maintenance of personal computer hardware, software programs, and Internet service. The Personal Ac ...

  6. Balloon Platforms for Remote Sensing of Water Quality in Mixing Zones

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: N/A

    We hypothesize that lightweight infrared (IR) and video cameras mounted on a unmanned tethered helium balloon and accessed via a wireless network can remotely sense water quality at site scales. We will demonstrate the technical feasibility of a ground based network to monitor and control balloon mounted IP-enabled wireless IR and video cameras for measurement of the spatial distribution of surfa ...
