Health and Eldercare
The monitoring and evaluation of the health hazards present at a workplace is useful to both employees and employers. Similar aids oriented to elderly people can empower them to live independently for longer, leading to a better social support and a positive impact on general mental and physical wellbeing. We develop portable and wearable nonintrusive sensor systems to assess conditions and health risks in an easy and inexpensive way.
Sport and rehabilitation
Sport training and rehabilitation are applications which can benefit from ambulatory sensor systems technologies designed to capture human motion-related variables in real-time. We are interested in the design of sensor systems that are able to provide a personalized user feedback with motivational aspects the can only be achieved by customized information treatment and knowledge extraction in prolonged time periods.
Industry 4.0: man-machine collaboration
Ambulatory activity recognition is a key element to facilitate a natural and effortless integration of people in new cooperative scenarios, such as human-robot interaction or ambient intelligence. Human should not care about such coupling, the technology has to detect motions and intentions of humans, and act accordingly. We develop new methods and tools aimed to have robots interacting with humans safely.
