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: In best circles: First integrated circuit from self-assembled polymer

For the first time, a team of researchers at the Max-Planck Institute (MPI) for Polymer Research in Mainz, Germany, has succeeded in making an integrated circuit (IC) from just a monolayer of a semiconducting polymer via a bottom-up, self-assembly approach.

In the self-assembly process, the semiconducting polymer arranges itself into an ordered monolayer in a transistor. The transistors are binary switches used...

Im Focus: Hybrid optics bring color imaging using ultrathin metalenses into focus

For photographers and scientists, lenses are lifesavers. They reflect and refract light, making possible the imaging systems that drive discovery through the microscope and preserve history through cameras.

But today's glass-based lenses are bulky and resist miniaturization. Next-generation technologies, such as ultrathin cameras or tiny microscopes, require...

Im Focus: Stem cell divisions in the adult brain seen for the first time

Scientists from the University of Zurich have succeeded for the first time in tracking individual stem cells and their neuronal progeny over months within the intact adult brain. This study sheds light on how new neurons are produced throughout life.

The generation of new nerve cells was once thought to taper off at the end of embryonic development. However, recent research has shown that the adult brain...
