Abstract
This paper proposes an innovative Virtual-Reality-based interaction strategy integrated with a real domotics platform as a testbed to evaluate user experience of people with disabilities and their assistants. A living lab has been arranged to analyze and extract those applications with better acceptance for the users, making use of a multimodal approach to adapt the interaction mechanisms to their needs, skills and preferences. A preliminary testing phase validated the system in terms of performance, reliability and usability. A complete evaluation trial is about to be configured for assessing the final system with a wide range of target users.
