List of all the projects carried out at MI-ITI, past and ongoing, searchable by title, year and author.
MITIExcell will Improve M-ITI’s capacity in research and technological development, expanding human potential and promoting a critical mass of researchers with interdisciplinary experience in human computer interaction (HCI) seeking to investigate and develop humanistic and technological innovative solutions, that take advantage of outermost geographical position of Madeira to promote justice social, environmental sustainability and motivation of communities by new technologies and social networks. It shall also work on tools to analyze trends in tourism and marketing, complemented with transmedia experience. The three year project will be leveraging international Partnerships with Carnegie Mellon University, University of Texas at Austin and University College London, in the R&D aspect.
Funded by FCT (Portuguese Foundation for Science and Technology) under the Carnegie Mellon | Portugal Early Bird 2013 program (CMU|Pt EPB), this project seeks to understand and design for prolonged engagement with wearable activity trackers.
The “AHA: Augmented Human Assistance” project is a novel, integrative and cross-disciplinar approach of 4 portuguese universities, CMU and 2 portuguese industry partners that combines innovation and fundamental research in the areas of human computer interaction, robotics, serious games and physiological computing.
leapFROG M-ITI - Enhancing the Research and Innovation Potential of M-ITI through Human-Computer Interaction and Design Innovation
The goal of the project proposal is to seek funding in order to expand the research and innovation potential of the Madeira Interactive Technologies Institute (M-ITI) of the University of Madeira through the hiring of an ERA Chair in Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) and Design Innovation (DI).
RehabNet proposes to develop a novel rehabilitation paradigm, based on low cost technology that can deliver motor rehabilitation for ALL patients, ANYWHERE they are.
This will be achieved following 2 main research objectives: To develop a novel upper-limb rehabilitation system that allows us not only to effectively train motor function , but to monitor and to collect extensive synchronized brain activity and behavioral data on patient performance during the recovery process. This unique system will provide us extremely valuable data that will allow us to propose a generalization of it to a neurofeedback paradigm that can eventually be used by all stroke patients, either at home or in the clinic.
With ProCEED, our aim is to explore the ICT design requirements of local micro-entrepreneurs in Mozambique, prototype these experiences in the form of a mobile-based service that capitalizes on an existing Portuguese TTS system to enable literate and illiterate vendors to connect with their customers, and test and evaluate the service prototype in the field.
