Designing sensory-substitution devices: Principles, pitfalls and potential

Authors: Kristjánsson Árni, Moldoveanu Alin, Jóhannesson Ómar, Balan Oana, Spagnol Simone, Valgeirsdóttir Vigdís Vala and Unnthorsson Rúnar in: Restorative Neurology and Neuroscience, vol. 34, no. 5, pp. 769-787, 2016 Abstract: An exciting possibility for compensating for loss of sensory function is to augment deficient senses by conveying missing information through an intact sense. Here we present an overview… Continue Reading Designing sensory-substitution devices: Principles, pitfalls and potential

Exploring Multimodal Biosignal Features for Stress Detection during Indoor Mobility

Authors: Kyriaki Kalimeri and Charalampos Saitis in: 18th ACM International Conference on Multimodal Interaction Abstract: This paper presents a multimodal framework for assessing the emotional and cognitive experience of blind and visually impaired people when navigating in unfamiliar indoor environments based on mobile monitoring and fusion of electroencephalography (EEG) and electrodermal activity (EDA) signals. The overall goal is to understand which… Continue Reading Exploring Multimodal Biosignal Features for Stress Detection during Indoor Mobility
