Adapted camera for use by persons with disabilities

Many persons with disabilities are unable to use camera or binoculars. A need exists to create a relatively simple, yet affordable system that offers image magnification and picture-taking. The proposed solution involves a point-and-shoot camera that permits computer control of camera features coupled with a pan/tilt system. The Canon family of camera and the Canon EOS Digital Camera Software Development Kit (EDSDK) shows promise. Interfacing with the Eagletron Tracker Pod would offer pan/tilt. The project sponsors will provide all hardware and software needed for the project as well as design criteria for a use by persons with disabilities.
