Rehabilitation Engineering Research Centers (RERCs) Program on Wireless Technologies: The purpose of the RERC program is to improve the effectiveness of services authorized under the Rehabilitation Act by conducting advanced engineering research on and development of innovative technologies that are designed to solve particular rehabilitation problems or to remove environmental barriers. RERCs also demonstrate and evaluate such technologies, facilitate service delivery system changes, stimulate the production and distribution of new technologies and equipment in the private sector, and provide training opportunities.
RERC on Wireless Technologies: NIDILRR seeks to fund an RERC to conduct research and development activities to improve the ability of individuals with sensory, mobility, cognitive, and other disabilities to obtain, independently access and use wireless technologies in their schools, communities, workplaces, and for emergency response. Wireless technologies support communication, data transfer, information access, navigation, and control via personal, local, and wide area networks and provide platforms for installed and cloud-based applications. Stakeholders likely to benefit from this RERC’s work include individuals with disability, policymakers, and industry.
