The progress of ICT and electronics is essential to promote the employment of physically-challenged people.
Thanks to the long-standing research and development for "reading," "writing" and "listening," various types of devices and software have become commercially available to support the physically-challenged, so they can participate in many autonomous activities for general desk work and communication now.
The arrival of the recent high-accuracy positioning technology has added "mobility" for the support. For example, visually-challenged people can move freely by themselves in their offices and the guest room of an office they have never visited before.
The autonomous mobile technology which has been developed by TRON Project and the approaches that use such a technology by private sector are introduced in this symposium. The panel discusses the support for the employment of physically-challenged people which companies can provide now.
