Digitally controlled BrailleJet printing


The aim of the BrailleJet project is to create a new type of affordable Braille printing system, which would help the visually impaired people in their everyday life. The overarching objective of the feasibility study is to mitigate risks related to subsequent phases of the innovation project, i.e. the risks associated with the planned industrialization, the commercialization of the BrailleJet device and post-project exploitation of the results.

As part of the work performed, the BrailleJet conception has been revised and updated, and all planned tasks aimed at mapping and minimizing the risks inherent in the implementation of the project have been fulfilled.

In addition to wide market research, the accomplishment of the user experience study, as well as the required material examinations and technological tests, an international partners’ network guaranteeing the success of product development and the introduction onto the market has also been established.

The final result of the BrailleJet SME Instrument Phase 1 project is that we understood much better the needs and possibilities of the market and we were able to harmonize of our goals with them.
