Survey into AT opportunities for disability sector

The Australian Housing and Urban Research Institute wants volunteer research participants to be part of a national study into assistive technologies (AT). If you are an end-user or carer who have or intend buying, smart technology or other products including monitoring or security devices, then this survey is for you. (Survey details below).


The aim is to identify the social and economic benefits and opportunities that AT does and can play in supporting independent living. It will investigate how people with disability perceive AT and their views on incentives and disincentives to invest in them; and what drives or does not encourage better AT policy.

Eligibility criteria:

  • have assistive device(s) at home that use Google Home, Amazon Alexa or similar
  • are 18+ or a guardian can complete the survey for the participant
  • have a disability, age or non-age related

The project is being undertaken between the University of New South Wales, Faculty of the Built Environment, City Futures; The University of Adelaide, Centre for Housing, Urban and Regional Planning (CHURP) and University of Tasmania, Housing and Community Research Unit, School of Sociology and Social Work AHURI Research Centre.
