Title: ETSI Technical Committee Human Factors July, 2004

ETSI Technical Committee Human Factors
July, 2004)
Technical Committee Human Factors (TC HF)
  • Responsible for human factors issues in all areas
    of telecommunications
  • Responsibility to ensure ETSI takes account of
    the needs of all users, including those who are
    older, younger or disabled
  • Produces standards, guidelines and reports that
    set the criteria necessary to ensure the widest
    possible accessibility of converging information
    and communications technologies
  • Chairman Stephen Furner (British
  • Vice Chairmen Bruno von Niman (ITS)
    Mike Pluke (Castle Consulting)
    Lutz Groh

The eEurope Initiatives
  • Launched by the European Commission in 2000
    eEurope 2002 An Information Society For All
  • Intended to accelerate positive change in the EU
  • Building on this success, in June 2002 the
    initiative was extended into eEurope Action Plan
  • TC HF very successful in applications aligned
    with the eEurope Action plan, resulting in
    successful funding and deliveries

Address the needs of all users
Erkki Liikanen
  • European Commissioner responsible for Enterprise
    and Information Society (until July, 2005)
  • We should aim for all citizens to be able to
    use electronic communications, whether they have
    less digital skills, are living in remote
    regions, have less income, or have special
    physical or mental needs. Everyone should share
    the benefits of the Information Society in terms
    of access to services and of greater choice,
    lower prices and higher quality.

STF 230 Using UCI systems to improve
communications for disabled, young and elderly
  • Earlier STF work proposed and defined a Universal
    Communications Identifier (UCI)
  • The UCI helps people control how they communicate
    across all current and future communications
    services and provides them with reliable ways
    to identify who they are communicating with
  • Identify how these capabilities can be targeted
    at aiding disabled, young and elderly people (who
    are often excluded from effectively using
    communications services)
  • Interviews and questionnaires were done with
    people representing the needs of the above groups
  • An ETSI Guide giving guidelines on additions to
    and usage of UCI was produced

STF230 downstreaming
  • An ETSI/eEurope leaflet on UCI was produced in
    order to help the STF communicate with
    non-technical bodies this has been very widely
  • The work of STF230 was presented to an audience
    of Human Factors experts from major
    telecommunications companies in the form of 2
    papers at the 19thth Human Factors in
    Telecommunications Symposium (2003) in Berlin
  • A presentation on UCI was given at the VON Europe
    2004 (Voice over IP) conference (London, June
  • An article about UCI will be published shortly in
    Telektronikk (a publicly distributed Telenor)

STF230 planned downstreaming
  • TISPAN has agreed to have a Birds of a Feather
    session at its September meeting to determine how
    TISPAN can support the introduction of UCI
  • UCI has recently been mentioned on the IETFs
    ENUM mailing list as being an important area that
    should be investigated (ENUM is an IETF
    standard that defines how a single telephone
    number can be used to contact a person using a
    number of different communications services)
  • No current funded work on UCI so support to other
    bodies (in ETSI and outside) showing interest in
    UCI is difficult to achieve
  • Requirements on IMPACT
  • Further publicity may be required
  • Multimodal demonstrator?

STF264 Telecare solutions (end user aspects)
  • Demand from customers for ICT services on the
    integrated potentials offered by new narrow- and
    broadband, fixed and mobile technologies (GSM,
    GPRS, IP, UMTS), to support delivery of care
  • Supported independence through the delivery of
    care services through public and private networks
    will give vulnerable customers greater access to
    an independent life within the wider community
    and reduce the need for institutional care
  • This is not exclusively services for older
    members of the community it includes young
    people who need care at home, permanent heart
    monitor wearers, pregnant women, etc.

STF264 Telecare solutions (end user aspects)
  • Intelligencia Ambiental 2004
  • UBICARE 2004
  • National workshops in Spain, Sweden, Norway and
    UK in 2004 (Q3/Q4)
  • 3G World Congress 2004
  • ETSI workshop in 2005
  • IMPACT candidate
  • press relesse,
  • presentation package (brochure )

STF 265 User Profile Management
  • User profiles - increasingly important for
    customisation of terminals and services to
    provide efficient communications.
  • Proper user profile management will be critical
    to the universal acceptance and success of new
    and advanced communication services.

User-oriented handling of multicultural issues in
broadband and narrowband multimedia communications
  • New STF work to start October 2004

Rationale, scope, tasks
  • The eEurope programme envisages widespread
    availability of online public services
  • European citizens and visitors to Europe come
    from a very wide range of different cultures
  • There are two major requirements
  • to avoid users having to manually select from a
    long list of different versions of a service each
    time they use one
  • to support those introducing services by not
    expecting them to produce variants of the service
    for every possible different culture
  • The proposed work addresses these issues by
    identifying ways in which services can access a
    users language and other cultural preferences/
    abilities and deliver a service variant most
    suited to those preferences/abilities

Planned liaison/downstreaming activities
  • It is proposed to involve the cultural
    localisation community in the work of the STF
  • This will include
  • a number of ISO and CEN committees working in the
    field of cultural issues related to ICT services
  • LISA (the Localization Industry Standards

Expectations from ETSI PR
  • The STF, like previous STFs, would benefit from
  • high quality leaflets which give a relatively
    non-technical description of the proposed work of
    the STF
  • press releases corresponding to the start of the
    STF and to key outputs of the STFs work
  • The availability of the above would facilitate
    successful initial contacts with individuals and
    organizations that could benefit the work of the
