PROJECTS

International Projects featuring novel AR, VR, AI & IoT Solutions

Feb 2019 – Jan 2020

The Immersive4Learning platform will adopt the Advanced Technology AIDE from KTH and Industrial Platform Neural Compute Stick (NCS) from Intel. The AIDE enables the implementation of the core linked data model connecting heterogeneous data sources and descriptions within the Virtual Reality Learning Environment (VRLE). The NCS is used to perform the demanding computation on the edge with collected data from the VR environment, parametrizing the heterogeneous data collected using the AI and then forwarding the abstracted data for further processing to the cloud in order to perform VR content personalization.

Feb 2019 – Jan 2020

Immersive4Learning is an intelligent platform powered by artificial intelligence (AI) and pedagogical and cognitive models for creation and delivery of teaching material in Virtual Reality environments. It utilizes a set of pedagogical models, including gamification, and a behaviour, learning style and cognitive performance monitoring engine, enabling dynamic personalization of the learning experience.

Mar 2018 – Feb 2019

May 2014 – Sept 2015

ARgenie is a web browser online tool which enables RAPID and SIMPLE creation and deployment of AR applications using a ‘drag&drop’ concept that does not require programming skills. It is a cross-platform cloud-based service for building AR powered smartphone, tablet, or desktop applications. The solution enables application execution on any desired platform: Android, iOS, Windows, and Mac.

May 2014 – Sept 2015

MOBIWallet – Mobility and transport digital wallet. Development of interoperable fare management for sustainable urban transport. Purchase of public transport tickets via smart phone with options for travel planning and information on arrival times through Augmented Reality.

May 2014 – Sept 2015

The SMARTIE project works on security, privacy and trust for data exchange between IoT devices and consumers of their information. Results are demonstrated in smart cities in Germany, Serbia and Spain. Additional partners are from Portugal and the UK.

May 2014 – Sept 2015

CITI-SENSE will develop “citizens’ observatories” to empower citizens to contribute to and participate in environmental governance, to enable them to support and influence community and societal priorities and associated decision making. CITI-SENSE will develop, test, demonstrate and validate a community-based environmental monitoring and information system using innovative and novel Earth Observation applications.
