On October 23rd 2013 the Special-Research Award for Human-Technology-Interaction by the Gips-Schüle-Foundation was awarded to the project ASLM. With the research lab located at the University of Applied Sciences Esslingen, the project aimed to develop a new kind of assistive system to support persons with impairments in production environments. The new assistive system uses motion tracking and projection. Within the project gamification elements were explored to improve motivation and work satisfaction. The system was constructed and built with the support of the company Schnaithmann. The system was evaluated at the sheltered work organization BWH Heilbronn. We congratulate the three awardees.

Basic research on assistive systems using motion recognition, projection and gamification can be found in the following publications:
