As the population ages worldwide, more and more efforts are being made toward providing the best conditions possible for our elders. In these efforts, technology plays a very prominent role. We present our proposal for ambient-assisted living spaces where an underlying sensorial infrastructure, coupled with sentient visors, can aid individuals in many daily… (More)
This paper proposes the use of ubiquitous computing and multi-agent systems to obtain information related to the locomotion of people with visual impairments on public spaces; and use that information to evaluate the accessibility of such spaces.
The human action recognition problem, for real time implementation have always been part of the research interest in the iSpace. Different techniques have been used in approaching a real time sensing and processing of the information to be able to deliver feedback to the user as well to monitoring systems. In this paper we apply wavelet processing… (More)
A digital signal processing training module (DSPTM) is constructed around a TMS320C6211 starter kit. The DSP target system is enclosed in a portable case with the necessary accessories: A host port interface connector, power supply, function generator, audio amplifier, speaker, input/output audio sockets and selector switches. DSP demonstration software is… (More)
