In parallel to his studies in industrial pattern recognition he applied elements of this technology to develop a reading machine for assisting blind and visually impaired persons incorporating optical character recognition and document analysis. This pilot project in rehabilitation engineering not only laid the foundation for a number of ambitious projects in the field of assistive devices for blind and visually impaired persons but also for establishing a permanent ten-person Working Group on Rehabilitation Technology called ´fortec´.
Today the R&D activities not only cover assistive devices for blind and visually impaired persons but also for speech, hearing, motor and multiple impaired people and for elderly persons.
