ES stands for innovators and the promise and power of technology. Nowhere is this more evident than in the accessible
technology that is spread out across the show floor. Technology has
the power to work for people of all ages and abilities. The CTA Foundation
is proud to support organizations using innovative technologies that have
a positive impact on the lives of seniors and those with disabilities.
The CTA Foundation again partnered with the
Extreme Tech Challenge to hold the Eureka Park
Accessibility Contest. Five winners were selected from
more than 200 startups based upon the potential of
their technology to improve the lives of seniors and
those with disabilities. They each received $2,500 and
a booth in Eureka Park. This year's winners are:
Lili Smart uses an app interface,
in home sensors and a wearable
to monitor people receiving care,
allowing the 24/7 organization to
exchange the information needed to
care for a loved one from a distance.
Project Ray develops phones for
individuals with visual impairments
of all ages to help them connect,
communicate and socialize.
SignAll is an automated software that
translates sign language to text.
SofiHub uses the Internet of Things
and artificial intelligence to create
an at-home assistant for seniors, keeping them safe by setting important
reminders, creating reports for caregivers and sending out alerts in cases
of emergency.
Unaliwear is a voice activated smartwatch designed to keep seniors safe and
healthy without requiring a smartphone,
by giving reminders, detecting falls and
summoning emergency assistance.

In addition, the foundation is involved
in other events around CES. Olli, the
world's most accessible self-driving vehicle,
will be on display in the grand lobby in the
LVCC. The foundation partnered with
IBM and Local Motors to crowdsource
how to make Olli more accessible throughout this year.
The foundation is hosting two panels this
year around accessibility. The first is on
smart home technology and the second is
on self-driving vehicles. They are taking
place on January 10th and 11th respectively
in conference room N256 in the North Hall
of the LVCC.
We are proud to again host the Accessible
Leaders tour in conjunction with CTA's
Government and Legal Affairs Team. This
tour connects leading disability advocates
with industry to help facilitate the dialogue
necessary to continue the development of
accessible technologies.
CES 2018 is the global stage where nextgeneration innovations are introduced into
the marketplace. We are proud to support
the participation of companies and industry
professionals representing the benefits that
accessible technology can bring to people of
all abilities. We want to hear from you if
your company or someone you know is
exhibiting a technology helping people of all
abilities and ages live more independently.
