Description: Solar is a project that aims to develop a software to receive the necessary data and produce the desired results in terms of sunlight availability inside buildings. The presence of sunlight over time can be predicted using variables such as latitude and longitude, the configuration of windows, balconies and other surfaces of sunlight entry, and a survey of the surrounding obstacles. Its goal is to develop an image processing algorithm that can determine the blocked and unblocked areas for each combination of azimuth and elevation coordinates and generate the desired solar exposure data for new construction or solar exposure analysis of existing buildings. It is hoped that procedures for assessing the thermal quality of buildings will be added at a later stage, with the goal of more efficient energy use.

Description: The MoSBurn project aims to model the Burnout (considering the three dimensions: exhaustion, cynicism and effectiveness) of college students based on a quantitative study that includes questionnaires with internationally validated scales. Burnout is a state of emotional, mental and physical exhaustion caused by excessive and prolonged stress (distress), which has a detrimental effect on students’ academic performance and can ultimately lead to dropout. Recently, this problem seems to have increased due to the pandemic of COVID-19, which is a major concern for universities. By applying the Structural Equation Modeling, it is expected to estimate a model that allows identifying which (in)direct effects are statistically significant regarding burnout of college students, considering optimism and distress as potential predictors. Understanding the results may help suggest some intervention to improve student performance and help universities in their mission to provide well-being and quality education to their students.

For this purpose, in addition to using energy from renewable sources (Green H2), in order to make the process even “Greener”, and so as to maximise relevance, wastewater will be used in the hydrogen production process. Thus, the treatment of wastewater is necessary to achieve high hydrogen purity and efficiency of process. The plant will be operated in multiple emulated configurations (energy storage, microgrid, fuel production). Hydrogen is increasingly seen as a very important energy vector, both at European and national level. IPT is part of a working group created by the CIMT to turn the Médio Tejo into a “Hydrogen Region”.

Description: The recent growth in the use of inertial sensors and their applicability in areas such as health, sports, navigation systems and aircraft / aerospace engineering is a phenomenon that can have significant impacts on the use of this technology. In addition to the low cost, small size and low power consumption, the inertial sensors have the ability to measure the intensity of physical quantities of a moving object without the need for external references. In the health area, particularly in monitoring, this type of sensor, has been under investigation in situations of support for physical rehabilitation and monitoring of the mobility of Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s patients. The effectiveness of these sensors depends on the ability of the algorithms of gathering information from each of them and estimating more accurate information by sensor fusion algorithms. The fusion of inertial sensors data with other types of sensors such as force censors, allows devices to determine patients movement intentions. Moreover, the physical rehabilitation of patients that suffered accidents or traumatic actions frequently requires the use of physical structures to guide and sustain the required rehabilitation exercises. In these cases accurate motion and force controls are mandatory to prevent further injuries and allow patient rehabilitation. The proposed system enables the control of limb movements based on the sensor data and the patient intentions. The type and intensity of the training may be programmed by the medical staff that receives feedback from the wireless sensors. The patients receive a number of visual and physical stimulus generated by a virtual reality installation.

HTPDIR (POCI-01-0247-FEDER-017644)

logo Title: Human Tracking and Perception in Dynamic Immersive Rooms
Partners: SketchPixel, IPT, UC
Researchers: Gabriel Pereira Pires, Luís A. Almeida, Miguel Abreu
Date: 2017-02-01 - 2021-01-31
Status: completed
url: project sheet / website
Description: The potential of immersive reality systems and its broad range of application are well known. Despite the numerous systems available, there are currently no solutions that map static and dynamic obstacles in the physical space, and thereby users have to circulate in empty rooms or perform interaction with the immersive system in a very limited space. On the other hand, the tracking of the users restricts to the user’s head (or hands through the use of controllers), or when members and hands are also tracked, users need to stand in front of the RGB-D sensors -D (or other sensors) in a limited space. The motion tracking of the entire body in larger areas is usually solved using tags, with optical or radiofrequency modulation, placed at several points of the body, and using high frequency sensors to capture these tags. This leads to systems with low flexibility and extremely expensive. In this project it is proposed to develop a low cost system based on multiple RGB-D sensors (> = 4), providing simultaneously the tracking of the full body of the user at any point of the physical space (areas of tens of m ^ 2 ) considering unstructured and dynamic environments, gesture recognition for a more natural interaction with the immersive environment, as well as the interaction with the real world from the immersive world. This system finds a broad range of applications in many areas, namely, shopping area (real estate development, allowing to show final finishing/decoration in spaces), education (space simulation in classrooms, museums, showrooms), training in simulation (accident simulation, police training, social training). The possibility of adapting any space to a new dynamic virtual world, where the user can move within it, opens up a whole new range of solutions with a potential that can be exploited in several areas of activity.
