An Augmented Reality-Based Framework for Assisting Individuals with Autism and Cognitive Disorders

Vladimir Geroimenko, Samir El-Seoud, and Osama Halabi

Abstract—People with autism require systematic assistance while dealing with the surrounding environment and its objects. The project aim is to develop a framework that could be of substantial help to people with autism and cognitive disorders. The framework is based on common mobile devices and freely available Augmented Reality (AR) applications. The Augmented Reality used in our approach is marker-based AR that employs a camera and a visual marker to trigger and present media content on the mobile device‚Äôs screen. The developed framework allows parents and teachers to easily create educational augmented environments for children with autism and cognitive disorders by populating a real-world space with visual markers of favorite cartoonish helpers that can evoke helpful AR content and embed it in the real-world environment. The paper analyzes and discusses the use of the proposed framework from conceptual and technological points of view.

Index Terms—Autism and cognitive disorders, educational augmented environments, new learning models and applications.
