1 DR. JOO TAN DEPARTMENT OF COMPUTER SCIENCE KUTZTOWN UNIVERSITY APRIL 29, 2014 iPAWS

2 Outline Background System Design / Technologies / Goals Roles  Manager  Supervisor  User Summary Future Work Prototype Systems

3 Background KU Research Grant in 2012 Work with Graduate Assistants  Heather Duncan (Spring 2012)  Kyle Wamsley (Spring 2013)  David Day (Spring 2014) Work with 3 project teams in CSC354  Created 3 different prototypes (Fall 2012)

4 Background Target special needs group – individuals with autism Individuals struggle with social interaction and verbal skills Most applications have been geared toward children with autism Adults with autism face difficulties in a work environment Need an application that combines supervisor instruction and human computer interface

5 Architecture Interactive Personal Assistant Web-Application System (iPAWS) Two main components  Task Developer  Task Manager Non-traditional client/server design Task instructions for users held in Database Figure 1: System Architecture

6 Design Task Manager had successful testing as a client user (front-end) interface  5 test subjects Tasks are hardcoded into the interface Need a server (back-end) interface for Supervisors and Managers

7 System Design Goals Easily accessible by multiple users  Users  Supervisors  Manager Portable for Users* using mobile tablets at work Simple and Intuitive for all users + * User refers to the front-end end-user + user refers to all users in general

8 Web Technologies Implementation of Webapp System  HTML5/CSS3  jQuery  jQuery Mobile  jQuery UI  ASP.NET Framework

9 Class Diagram Design

10 Design of Manager Role Two main functions  Account Management  Create/Generate Reports

11 Manager: Account Management Access User and Supervisor accounts Perform CRUD operations on accounts Figure 2: Manager On Login

12 Manager: Create/Generate Reports Report Details Include:  Progress and activity of User  Tasks that User was  Assigned  Completed  Others  Analyze data collected Reports can be printed or sent by

13 Design of Supervisor Role View logged-in Users upon Supervisor Login Create new tasks Assign categories* View task requests submitted by Users * A category may be considered as a work role Figure 3: Supervisor On Login

14 Supervisor: Create Tasks Simple and Intuitive Tasks Include:  Main Steps  Detailed Steps  Image  Video Clip  Audio Clip Preview Task Figure 4: Create New Task

15 Supervisor: Create Tasks (cont.) Figure 5: Add Main Step Figure 6: Add Detail Step

16 Supervisor: Assign Categories Categories are groups of related tasks Users can be assigned to one or more categories Categories designed to increase the ease of searching for a specified task

17 Supervisor: View Task Request Users have ability to request a task assignment from supervisor The Supervisor can:  Assign the task  Send request to different Supervisor  Set status of request

18 Design of User Role Defined by individual with autism in need of assistance with task completion Functional Requirements remain same as previous work (2012) Can now request a task assignment from the Supervisor

19 Future Work Finalize server-side design Implement server-side user interface Collaborate with Keystone Goodwill  Subject Testing Expand to other communities  Special needs groups  Senior citizens

20 Conclusion iPAWS provides a client user interface for individuals with autism iPAWS provides multiple functions for Supervisor and Manager roles including:  Managing Accounts  Generating Reports  Creating Tasks  Assigning Tasks  Previewing Tasks

21 iPAWS Prototype back-end (server) systems  A:  B:  C:

22 iPAWS Prototype front-end (client) systems Sample Tasks:  Goodwill: 
