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.

Researchers from the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) at the University of Waterloo led the development of a new extensible wiring technique capable of controlling superconducting quantum bits, representing a significant step towards to the realization of a scalable quantum computer.
"The quantum socket is a wiring method that uses three-dimensional wires based on spring-loaded pins to address individual qubits," said Jeremy Béjanin, a PhD...
In a paper in Scientific Reports, a research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute describes a novel light-activated phenomenon that could become the basis for applications as diverse as microscopic robotic grippers and more efficient solar cells.
A research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) has developed a revolutionary, light-activated semiconductor nanocomposite material that can be used...
By forcefully embedding two silicon atoms in a diamond matrix, Sandia researchers have demonstrated for the first time on a single chip all the components needed to create a quantum bridge to link quantum computers together.
"People have already built small quantum computers," says Sandia researcher Ryan Camacho. "Maybe the first useful one won't be a single giant quantum computer...
COMPAMED has become the leading international marketplace for suppliers of medical manufacturing. The trade fair, which takes place every November and is co-located to MEDICA in Dusseldorf, has been steadily growing over the past years and shows that medical technology remains a rapidly growing market.
In 2016, the joint pavilion by the IVAM Microtechnology Network, the Product Market “High-tech for Medical Devices”, will be located in Hall 8a again and will...
