Mindtooth – Wearable device to decode the human mind by means of neurometrics for a new concept of intelligent interaction with the environment.
Mindtooth will enable truly “intelligent” and “cooperative” interaction between human actors (e.g., car drivers, airplane pilots, factory workers) and the devices around them through the use of brain signals.
In fact, the Mindtooth system will return a set of operations based on “neurometric primitives” that industry can use to fine-tune a new range of “user-sensitive” services, thus augmenting human-machine interaction (HMI) and conjugating it into the cutting-edge concept of human-machine cooperation.
Vehicle interiors, aircraft cockpits, industrial inspection and maintenance, factory control panels and operational workstations in general are expected to become increasingly automated, with the aim of increasing precision, productivity and safety. However, on the other hand, their total autonomy from human control could be counterproductive, especially when human intervention is the key to increasing quality, flexibility and creativity when needed.
Mindtooth is expected to establish a new era within the HMI domain, where systems will.
(i) will be designed with real user perception in mind, and
(ii) will become truly “cognitive”, being able to perceive the users’ psychophysiological state and make informed decisions according to their timely needs and intentions.
Project Resolution Objectives:
In particular, Mindtooth is expected to be integrated into the next generation of intelligent control interfaces and dashboards to provide added services to users, such as drivers, pilots and general industrial workers, as well as during their training and evaluation protocols. Mindtooth is therefore expected to fully adapt to the needs of the emerging field of Industry 4.0 and the Internet of Things (IoT).
