Intelligent environments amongst us

07.06.2004


The ROBOTIKER Technological Centre is undertaking a Project involving Recognition of the Person and Adaptation to the Environment

The interacting of users with intelligent environments can be divided into three phases: recognising the person, adapting to the person and interacting with them. The ADAPTA project, being developed by ROBOTIKER Technological Centre, involves the first two phases of interacting with intelligent environments, i.e. recognition of the person and adaptation to the environment being its aims:

Recognition of the Person: recognising the user with or without their explicit collaboration, non-intrusively, independently of the surrounding environment or position of the person, rapidly, efficiently and, whenever possible, using non-specific devices. The need for interoperability of the various technologies required for the identification and recognition of persons makes the design of new generic and modular architectures necessary to enable a different distribution of centres for capturing, storing and processing the required data (signature files, biometric characteristics and patterns, etc.), at the same time ensuring the inviolability of this data while it is being transferred and handled.



Adaptation to the Environment: contextualising the environment on the basis of the person’s identity, the profile thereof and the type of interaction to be carried out, in an intelligent and dynamic way. When personalising the environment it is not only necessary to know who the user is, but also what actions are to be undertaken. For this, new mechanisms for the management of virtual identities and their associated profiles are needed; and the orientation of the project to situations centred on the person instead of the application is required Apart from the mentioned aims, as part of the ADAPTA project an Intelligent Environment Laboratory is being created at ROBOTIKER, enabling the generation of situations where the different models and technologies can be tested.

Im Focus: A Challenging European Research Project to Develop New Tiny Microscopes

The Institute of Semiconductor Technology and the Institute of Physical and Theoretical Chemistry, both members of the Laboratory for Emerging Nanometrology (LENA), at Technische Universität Braunschweig are partners in a new European research project entitled ChipScope, which aims to develop a completely new and extremely small optical microscope capable of observing the interior of living cells in real time. A consortium of 7 partners from 5 countries will tackle this issue with very ambitious objectives during a four-year research program.

To demonstrate the usefulness of this new scientific tool, at the end of the project the developed chip-sized microscope will be used to observe in real-time...

Im Focus: Giant Magnetic Fields in the Universe

Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.

The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.

Galaxy clusters are the largest gravitationally bound structures in the universe. With a typical extent of about 10 million light years, i.e. 100 times the...

Im Focus: Tracing down linear ubiquitination

Researchers at the Goethe University Frankfurt, together with partners from the University of Tübingen in Germany and Queen Mary University as well as Francis Crick Institute from London (UK) have developed a novel technology to decipher the secret ubiquitin code.

Ubiquitin is a small protein that can be linked to other cellular proteins, thereby controlling and modulating their functions. The attachment occurs in many...

Im Focus: Polymer-coated silicon nanosheets as alternative to graphene: A perfect team for nanoelectronics

Silicon nanosheets are thin, two-dimensional layers with exceptional optoelectronic properties very similar to those of graphene. Albeit, the nanosheets are less stable. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have, for the first time ever, produced a composite material combining silicon nanosheets and a polymer that is both UV-resistant and easy to process. This brings the scientists a significant step closer to industrial applications like flexible displays and photosensors.
