This paper presents the integration of simple well known vision techniques into a complex environment for children with severe autism. The interest lies in describing how this vision system has been designed such that it adapts to the strong
constraints set by the environment. Specifically: (a) non invasive to the users, (b) cope with variable visible lighting and background,(c) full body interaction for the users, (d) real tim detection, (e) defined ambiance, (f) adapt to a wide spectrum of non-typifiable users, (g) transportability (relatively light weight, fast setup and small footprint), (h) reduce costs and (i)safe, robust and sturdy.
