With Centers for Disease Control and Prevention prevalence estimates for children with autism spectrum disorder 1 in 88, identification and effective treatment of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is often characterized as a public health emergency. There is an urgent need for more efficacious treatments whose realistic application will yield more substantial(More)
Although it has often been argued that clinical applications of advanced technology may hold promise for addressing impairments associated with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), relatively few investigations have indexed the impact of intervention and feedback approaches. This pilot study investigated the application of a novel robotic interaction system(More)
Individuals with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) often have difficulty functioning independently and display impairments related to important tasks related to adaptive independence such as driving. Ability to drive is believed to be an important factor of quality of life for individuals with ASD. The presented work describes a novel driving simulator based(More)
Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is an extremely common and costly neurodevelopmental disorder. While significant research has been devoted to addressing social communication skill deficits of people with ASD, relatively less attention has been paid to improving their deficits in daily activities such as driving. Only two empirical studies have investigated(More)
—Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) is one of the most significant technologies in the information era. WSN is composed of hundreds of nodes which have ability of sensing, actuation and communicating, has caused extensively studied all over the word. This article presents the advantage of WSN and analyses the application of WSN in Environment Monitoring. In(More)
Recent advances in computer and robotic technology are enabling the application of such technology in assisting traditional intervention in developmental disorders such as autism spectrum disorders (ASD). A number of research studies indicate that many children with ASD prefer technology and this preference can be explored to develop systems that may(More)
A virtual reality driving system was designed to improve driving skills in individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). An appropriate level of cognitive load during training can help improve a participant's long-term performance. This paper studied cognitive load measurement with multimodal information fusion techniques. Features were extracted from(More)
It has been well established that adolescents with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) present social and behavioral characteristics that differ signifi‐ cantly from those of their peers without ASD. A growing number of recent studies have begun to look closely at automobile operation characteristics in individuals diagnosed with ASD. Some of this work has(More)
In addition to social and behavioral deficits, individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) often struggle to develop the adaptive skills necessary to achieve independence. Driving intervention in individuals with ASD is a growing area of study, but it is still widely under-researched. We present the development and preliminary assessment of a(More)
