human-machine interaction (hmi)
Carbon fiber fashion aims to assist humans to endure extreme weather and activities.
For individuals who communicate using a single switch, a new interface learns how they make selections, and then self-adjusts accordingly.
Robotic wheelchairs may soon be able to move through crowds smoothly and safely. As part of CrowdBot, EPFL researchers are exploring the technical, ethical and safety issues related to this kind of technology. The aim of the project is to eventually help the disabled get around more easily.
A novel approach to visual speech recognition that carefully designs the VSR model rather than increasing the size of the training data.
MagTrack Technology Opens Doors for Independent Operation of Smartphones, Computers, and Other Devices for Wheelchair Users
Clinical work begins with MagTrack, a cutting-edge assistive technology that enables power wheelchair users to control their connected devices and drive their power wheelchairs using an alternative, multimodal controller.
Human-robot interaction focuses on teaching robots from third-person observations of demonstrations to make it invariant and robust to the embodiment differences.
Designed as a necklace-style wearable in a 3D-printed case, SpeeChin is capable of recognizing 54 English and 44 Chinese voice commands — even if the wearer never says anything out loud.
Impact of personally relevant robotic failures (PeRFs) which would reduce trust in robots and robots’ likeability and willingness to use more than failures that are not personal to the user.
A system developed by Grégoire Courtine and Jocelyne Bloch now enables patients with a complete spinal cord injury to stand, walk and even perform recreational activities like swimming, cycling and canoeing.
Under severe occlusions, the method has outperformed all the existing state-of-the-art methods both quantitively and qualitatively.
In this episode, we talk about how a new wearable device can combat fatigue and how monitoring BAC via sweat can be a new use case for wearables.
Fatigue, due to extended periods of work and insufficient rest, can impair job performance, situation awareness and decision-making capabilities, even when it’s needed most.
Researchers have created a method to help workers collaborate with artificial intelligence systems.
Image analysis tools can make diagnosis and planning more efficient for implantation of the advanced hearing aid cochlear implant.
