5GMOBIX – 5G for cooperative & connected automated MOBIlity on X-border corridors

.PIU.UMCICTprojects  , , , , , , , , ,

2019-2021 The 5GMobix project, funded through Horizon 2020, aims to validate 5G technologies for CCAM (Cooperative, Connected and Automated Mobility) use-cases, in seven different European and Asian trial sites, including a Portugal-Spain Corridor connecting the cities of Porto and Vigo. The remarkable technical advance of the last few years regarding communication networks like 5G and autonomous driving technology is paving the way for a future of CCAM. The European Union intends to be on the innovation frontline of this new paradigm, contributing to the technological development, preparing regulations and identifying business models that can support it. The 5GMobix project is a step in such a direction, involving 58 partners from several European and Asian countries. CCG’s contribution CCG will take part through the PIU (Perception, Interaction, and Usability) e UMC (Urban Mobile Computing) applied research domains. It will coordinate the technology user-acceptance evaluation across all trial sites and conduct the technical coordination of the Portuguese-Spanish Corridor. The project is expected to produce valuable knowledge regarding the real-world deployment of CCAM – 5G technologies, potentiating business models for exploitation and supporting the regulatory effort in years to come.

PATErSoN – Prototyping medical AcousTic Environments for the deSign of New auditory warning signals

.PIU.UMCprojectsSaúde&Bem-Estar  , , , , ,

2018-2021 The “PATErSoN – Prototyping medical AcousTic Environments for the deSign of New auditory warning signals” project will redesign the sound alarms of the medical equipment present in the operating rooms and hospital recovery rooms. This Paterson project aims at a user-centered approach to the design of audio warning interfaces, rooted in psychophysics and neurophysiology, making warning signals more informative and detectable. We believe this will reduce the probability of human-generated errors that often result in serious harm to patients. All new warning signals will be validated in three different settings: laboratory psychophysical and neurophysiological tests, audio-visual immersive CAVE-like environment using real-time auralisation, integrating motion capture and 3D projection, and finally in a biomedical simulator environment. Contribution of the CCG CCG, by the applied research domains PIU e UMC, is responsible for the tasks of modeling and simulation of sound space in laboratory context and validation of sound warning signals in laboratory, immersive and simulated environment. Results The project’s final output will be a library of audio warning signals adapted to different levels of workload, background noise and events. All requirements will be translated into an acoustic prototyping tool which will serve both manufacturers and sound designers. It will allow selecting different sounds for different events and understand their real effect on a simulated operating or recovery room soundscape. As a whole, this research will contribute to a set of more adequate audio design guidelines for medical contexts, and better interactions and decisions in highly stressful and workloaded environments.

Fashion Awareness Customer Profiling (FACPROF) – Inovretail

.cVIGICTprojects  , , , , , , , ,

2018–2019 The project Fashion Awareness Customer Profiling (FACPROF) aims to create the necessary conditions for better management of stocks in the retail fashion products based on a characterization of visitors and their consumption, thus meeting the real needs of consumers. The contribution of the CCG The Centre for Computer Graphics (CCG) participates in the project through its Domain of Applied Research – CVIG (Computer Vision Interaction & Graphics) with the research and development of the module of characterization of visitors, which will make intensive use of computer vision techniques. The goal is to extract information in 2 main levels: Type of visitor according to gender and age range and User’s garment size and color distribution. Benefits The collected information allows the visitor “to be categorized”, thus helping to predict their purchasing profile and therefore lead to an optimization of stock management. This optimization of stock management translates into greater availability of the parts and sizes intended by the consumers and on a better adjustment of the stock to the real needs. Due to turnover in clothing and footwear retail, a small increase in sales, margins or a decrease in inventory cost can translate into significant increases in retailers’ results.
