SECTION I: Testing
||Has the R & D result been tested?
||In what mode has the result been tested?• Prototype• Pilot Application• Alpha/BETA testing
| NOESIS has been tested within a pilot study.
||Please describe and discuss the testing results
|NOESIS showed great potential for customisation to the kid’s need and characteristics, and assisted both educators and parents to monitor the kid’s project. Large-scale tests should be supported through the schools for disabilities and public educational services, in an effort to provide an alternative approach to the handling of autism spectrum disorders.
SECTION 2: Current Stage of Development
||To what extent does the development team have technical resources for supporting the production of a new product? (Researchers, human resources, hardware, etc. )
| The R&D result is a result of collective effort and developers are available both for employment as well as for technical advice and support if the product is to be produced.
||What are the technical issues that need to be tackled for full deployment, if needed?
| The technical issues that need to be tackled for full deployment are the following:Organization of a large scale pilot study for improving the productTranslation of the software in Greek language
Large orders for tools and material (as robots, stress, watches and RFID readers)
||What additional technical resources are needed for the production of this new product?
| The additional resources needed for the production of this new product are software licenses for the educational material (APA).
||Overall assessment of the current stage of technical development.
| NOESIS needs to be tested for a period of few months in order to make all the necessary final adjustments, and then it will be ready for making great commercial success.
SECTION 3: Deployment
||Define the demands for large scale production in terms of
- technologies, tools, machineries
- Staff effort
| The large scale production of NOESIS requires:
- Touch Screens
- Lego Robots
- Software licenses for educational material
- Stress watches
- RFID readers and tags
- 5 employees for the development of the product
- Consultation services from a doctor, a pedophycologist and an educator
- Translation of the software in Greek
SECTION 4: Overall Assessment
||What is your overall assessment of the technical feasibility of the research result?
| The R&D result can easily be transformed in a successful new product.
