Recently, electronic devices which compose our surrounding environment have been evolving dramatically. These devices have enhanced information processing capability.

Moreover, Cloud computing ― a combination of the deployment of digital communication network such as the Internet, and mobile phone network and huge server centers ― has a potential to significantly contribute to overcoming physical impairment by linking and utilizing various technologies and services organically.

This year’s TRON Enableware Symposium (TEPS2013) focuses on the latest digital technologies, and discusses and deepens our understanding of how they can support the life for physically-challenged and aged people from diverse viewpoints.
