The adaptation of nomad devices, applications and services, for the benefit of people with disability and of the elderly is especially challenging. This is because it requires a revision of the traditionally prevailing Human Computer Interaction (HCI) assumptions, such as that of designing for a non-disabled user in a desktop environment.ASK-IT1 (Ambient Intelligence Systems of Agents for Knowledge Based and Integrated Services for Mobility Impaired People) is a European Integrated Project (IST-2003-511298) within the IST 6th Framework Program in the e-Inclusion area. The driving vision behind the project is to develop services based on Ambient Intelligence (AmI) and Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) that allow mobility impaired people to move independently, live a quality life, and as a result, establish and secure economic and social inclusion. These services include the provision of relevant and real-time information, primarily for travelling, but also for use at home and at work. Nomad devices allow conten taccess at any time, at any place, and across multiple networks.
