Project description

Tensaii is collaborating with Särskolan in Umeå, Habiliteringscenter Region Västerbotten, Viva arbetsmarknad, and Umeå University to develop an interactive aid for children and youth with autism. With funding from Vinnova, we now have the opportunity to create a whole new kind of aid based on mixed reality and artificial intelligence that together create a powerful tool for people who struggle in certain social situations. Our goal is to create a more impactful tool than those available today that can carefully guide the user outside their comfort zone while at the same time leaving the user in total control.
