VERITAS aims to develop, validate and assess an open framework for built-in accessibility support at all stages of ICT and non-ICT product development, including specification, design, development and testing. The goal is to introduce simulation-based and VR testing at all stages of product design and development into the automotive, smart living spaces, workplace, infotainment and personal healthcare applications areas.

The goal is to ensure that future products and services are being systematically designed for all people including those with disabilities and functional limitations. Specifically, VERITAS will develop: An Open Simulation Platform (OSP) for testing at all development stages that will provide automatic simulation feedback and reporting for guideline/methodologies compliance and quality of service. detailed virtual user physical, cognitive, behavioural and psychological models as well as the corresponding simulation models to support simulation and testing at all stages of product planning and development. accessibility support tools at all the stages of iterative planning and development (i.e. specification, design, development, testing, evaluation) and for the five new application areas. virtual simulation environments for ICT and non-ICT products offering tools for testing and verification mainly at the design stage but also during the development stages when links to ICT technologies are implemented. a VR simulation environment for realistic and iterative testing providing simultaneous multimodal (visual, aural, etc.) feedback to the designer/developer as well as the potential for immersive realistic simulation and virtual persona testing (i.e. the developer taking the role of the end user). A simulation environment that will support multimodal interface virtual testing in realistic scenarios that will offer the opportunity to fine tune and adapt these technologies to the specific application.
