Technologies of Vision: past activities and projects

*people tracking, gesture analysis, activity recognition

  • ACube - Ambient Aware Assistance (PAT Grand Project). The goal is to improve the quality of life for the elderly and disabled through technological progress in areas such as a rehabilitation center or an institution for Alzheimer sufferers. ACube acts in the framework of Ambient Intelligence: the scientific challenge is to study methods and technologies for monitoring complex environments using distributed sensor networks in order to detect events, situations, and activities even in complex scenarios with many people.
