Attention Control and Eyesight Focus for Senior Citizens
The population is aging fast and with aging come cognitive impairments that often require costly facility care. This paper proposes Smart Glasses that can help alleviate these impairments at their early stages and thus allow senior citizens stay away from facility care longer. The Smart Glasses produce exogenous cues to attract user attention. Four usability experiments are described to evaluate the utility of the cues and other usability factors of the proposed system. We expect the results will give us valuable information on how to improve the design of the system based on senior citizens’ needs.
