The Rehabilitation Engineering Research Center on Technology Transfer (T2RERC) has teamed with the Smith-Kettlewell RERC for Blindness and Low Vision to conduct a Demand-Pull Project on Technology for Visual Impairment. The project will identify priority technology needs in the field and then seek out new and emerging technology solutions from Federal Laboratories, research centers, government contractors and other technology developers to address these needs. The T2RERC will then foster and facilitate technology transfer partnerships between manufacturers and technology developers to design, test, and commercialize the most promising technologies. This paper describes the process undertaken for a market based technology needs-identification.
