RehabNet proposes to develop a novel rehabilitation paradigm, based on low cost technology that can deliver motor rehabilitation for ALL patients, ANYWHERE they are.
This will be achieved following 2 main research objectives: To develop a novel upper-limb rehabilitation system that allows us not only to effectively train motor function , but to monitor and to collect extensive synchronized brain activity and behavioral data on patient performance during the recovery process. This unique system will provide us extremely valuable data that will allow us to propose a generalization of it to a neurofeedback paradigm that can eventually be used by all stroke patients, either at home or in the clinic.
With ProCEED, our aim is to explore the ICT design requirements of local micro-entrepreneurs in Mozambique, prototype these experiences in the form of a mobile-based service that capitalizes on an existing Portuguese TTS system to enable literate and illiterate vendors to connect with their customers, and test and evaluate the service prototype in the field.
Future Fabulators encourages European citizens to imagine, experience and investigate living in a range of possible futures, designed as artistic experiments today. It takes uncertainty as a creative challenge in creating cultural spaces in which visions of everyday life in the time ahead become tangible and discussable. FF merges the voices of futurists, scientists, artists, policy makers and economists with those of the experts of everyday life, aiming to raise awa- reness about the impact of future visions on contemporary culture and lifestyle.
Field robotics is the use of sturdy robots in unstructured environments. One important example of such a scenario is in Search And Rescue (SAR) operations to seek out victims of catastrophic events in urban environments. While advances in this domain have the potential to save human lives, many challenging problems still hinder the deployment of SAR robots in real situations. This project tackles one such crucial issue: effective real time mapping. To address this problem, we adopt a multidisciplinary approach by drawing on both Robotics and Human Computer Interaction (HCI) techniques and methodologies.
CEDAR -- Collaborative Engineering Design And Review -- proposes to advance the state of the art in collaborative virtual environments. The main idea of our research approach is to combine the power of novel interaction paradigms with the results from ethnographic observations of real world engineers and their successive evaluations to the different versions of the system.
The Affidavit project ― Automating the Proof of Quality Attributes for Large Scale Software Architectures ― aims to make the current state of knowledge about software architecture design accessible to mainstream system developers by building a framework that will allow architects to investigate the properties of their architectures through architectural simulation and ensure their correct application through architectural transformation.
