The Augmented Human Assistant project is an ambitious scientific and technological endeavour that aims at providing solutions to alleviate the current and upcoming social, psychological and economical burden related to sedentarism and aging related morbidities. It brings together innovation and research in a cross-disciplinary consortium with expertise in such diverse areas such as Human Functioning and Performance, Augmented Reality (AR) technologies, serious games for health, physiological signal acquisition systems, computer vision systems, robot navigation and intelligent scene assessment.
We propose to develop adaptive Augmented Reality physical training tools that deliver online feedback on performance to prevent sedentarism, support active aging and provide personalized tools for function re-training in motor impaired patients.
Monitoring of user state by means of biosensors, computer vision systems and exercise performance data. User state will be assessed in a transparent manner and data will be visualized through friendly user interfaces, and shared with patients, clinicians and/or relatives.
The systems will be integrated on a mobile robotic platform with indoor navigation capabilities that will interact through a virtual coach system to monitor patients, provide reminders on tasks, guide patients through exercises, and assist them in daily routines.
