Abstract

One area in rehabilitative research is to develop methods for allowing physically disabled persons to be involved in office or desk-top work. Based on the presumption that many specially designed gadgets for a single, specific function or task can be replaced by a more general purpose device, this project aims at the design of a reliable workstation with the use of speech recognition technology and robotics. A set of desk-top tasks was selected for task analysis and their requirements were transformed into the system capabilities for a cost-effective configuration. A prototype workstation was demonstrated. The workstation included a SRS-M1 industrial robot and a low cost speech recognition system hosted by a 6510-based microcomputer... Test software was developed such that a user was able to verbally direct the robot to perform preprogrammed and real-time control tasks. The concept of this workstation is useful for establishing an effective link between disabled persons and a desk-top environment.
