Human-centered technologies


In the field of security technologies, from secure access to electronic devices and bank accounts to personnel time attendance systems and access control to restricted areas, one of the fundamental challenges is the need to securely authenticate the identity of individuals. Currently, systems based on measuring biological characteristics, intrinsic to the person themselves and therefore difficult to transfer or steal, are becoming popular. For example, facial features, fingerprints, iris patterns, retinal scans, earlobe geometry, gait analysis, among many others. These techniques are known as biometrics and they provide credentials that do not depend on the end user to maintain their security.

Face detection and recognition system for identity identification and verification. Applications in video surveillance, digital onboarding, automatic entry/exit registration, among others.

Assistive and rehabilitation systems

Serious games are computer games designed for various purposes such as education, personnel training, healthcare, among others. These systems provide new forms of interaction by immersing the player in a virtual world through their body movements, achieving their purpose in a playful manner. In the field of clinical medicine, various studies have shown positive effects of using these devices in patients with different motor difficulties. The range of applications is wide, from promoting physical activity in children, youth, and adults to the rehabilitation of neurological patients.

Exergames-based systems for the assessment, monitoring, and management of motor rehabilitation and physical capabilities evaluation. Implementations using embedded systems, depth cameras, and balance platforms, with routines designed by specialists.
