Computer vision is a field that includes methods for acquiring, processing, analyzing, and understanding images and, in general, high-dimensional data from the real world in order to produce numerical or symbolic information.
A digital signal processor is a specialized microprocessor (or aSIP block), with its architecture optimized for the operational needs ofdigital signal processing.
Paul Ekman (born February 15, 1934) is an American psychologistwho is a pioneer in the study of emotions and their relation to facial expressions, has created an ‘atlas of emotions’ with more than ten thousand facial expressions, and has gained a reputation as “the best human lie detector in the world”.
Facial Action Coding System is a system totaxonomize human facial movements by their appearance on the face, based on a system originally developed by a Swedish anatomist named Carl-Herman Hjortsjö.
HALOsonic technology offers a technically sophisticated,solution for every acoustic challenge and is available to car manufacturers throughout the world – either as an integral part of the infotainment system or as an independent unit integrated in the existing sound system.
Haptic technology, haptics, or kinesthetic communication, is tactile feedback technology which recreates the sense of touch by applying forces, vibrations, or motions to the user.
A head-up display or heads-up display is any transparent display that presents data without requiring users to look away from their usual viewpoints.
High-dynamic-range imaging is a set of techniques used in imaging and photography to reproduce a greater dynamic range of luminosity than standard digital imaging or photographic techniques can do.
Horizon 2020 is the eighth phase of the Framework Programmes for Research and Technological Development (also called Framework Programmes; hence the project’s alternative name of ‘FP8’), funding programmes created by the European Union in order to support and encourage research in the European Research Area (ERA).
Human-Machine Interface researches the design and use of computer technology, focusing particularly on the interfaces between people (users) and computers.
Individual Sound Zones is a new technology from HARMAN that reduces unwanted noise while enhancing and personalizing the sounds that passengers want to hear.
In road-transport terminology, a lane departure warning system is a mechanism designed to warn a driver when the vehicle begins to move out of its lane on freeways and arterial roads.
Multimodal human machine technology
Multisensory and Multimodal Processing
In computing, a natural user interface, or NUI, or Natural Interface is the common parlance used by designers and developers of human-machine interfaces to refer to a user interface that is effectively invisible, and remains invisible as the user continuously learns increasingly complex interactions.
Near-infrared illumination is a method of night vision wherein a device that is sensitive to invisible near infrared radiation is used in conjunction with an infrared illuminator.
Programming paradigm is framework that defines how the user conceptualized and interprets complex problems. It is also is a fundamental style or approach used in software engineering to implement a programming language.
Original equipment manufacturer is a term used when one company makes a part or subsystem that is used in another company’s end product. The term is used in several ways, each of which is clear within a context.
A point cloud is a set of data points in some coordinate system. In a three-dimensional coordinate system, these points are usually defined by X, Y, and Z coordinates, and often are intended to represent the external surface of an object.
The RGB color model is an additive color model in which red, green, and blue light are added together in various ways to reproduce a broad array of colors.
Serial ATA is a computer bus interface that connects host bus adapters to mass storage devices such as hard disk drives and optical drives
Serial Attached SCSI is a point-to-point serial protocol that moves data to and from computer storage devices such as hard drives and tape drives.
Small and medium-sized enterprises or small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) are businesses whose personnel numbers fall below certain limits.
A software development kit is typically a set of software development tools that allows the creation of applications for a certain software package, software framework, hardware platform, computer system,video game console, operating system, or similar development platform.
A software requirements specification is a description of a software system to be developed, laying out functional and non-functional requirements, and may include a set of use cases that describe interactions the users will have with the software.
In the context of network security, a spoofing attack is a situation in which one person or program successfully masquerades as another by falsifying data and thereby gaining an illegitimate advantage.
Time of flight describes a variety of methods that measure the time that it takes for an object, particle or acoustic, electromagnetic or other wave to travel a distance through a medium.
User Experience involves a person’s behaviors, attitudes, and emotions about using a particular product, system or service.
The user interface, in the industrial design field of human-machine interaction, is the space where interactions between humans and machines occur.
