POST-DOC on Tactile Interfaces / Social networks / Aid systems for blind people.
Open at the UTC (Technological University of Compiègne) in the team EA 2223 COSTECH (Knowledge, Organisation and Technical Systems) – group CRED (Cognitive Research and Enactive Design).
We are looking for a POST-DOC to launch the ITOIP programme: Tactile Interactions for Orientation, Interaction and Presence. The aim of this project is to design Tactile Interfaces (emission and reception of tactile signals) for Blind People. The introduction of the tactile modality brings unprecedented possibilities for interaction via multimodal interfaces.
