Resumo


We propose a software architecture to help developers to create Android-based applications for users with motor disabilities – specifically. It supports using one or more hardware components of mobile devices including built-in sensors, camera and microphone, and encompasses an easy way of using and integrating such resources, which may lead to applications that provide alternative ways for accessing and managing data by users with disabilities. The solution also provides functionalities to work with raw sensor data, and offers a model for storing medical information of users. An evaluation with 19 software developers indicate that the architecture can be useful for creating not only solutions for people with motor disabilities, but diverse applications.
