- Objective 5: Developing computational methods for the analysis and prediction of movement qualities from behavioral signals, based on multi-layer parallel processes at non-linearly stratified temporal dimensions. As a result, we expect the project will produce a library of software modules for the EnTimeMent platform, providing the measurement tools needed for enabling automatic measurement, prediction, and entrainment of movement qualities at both the individual and group level.
- Objective 6: Supporting experiments and proof-of-concepts through a hardware and software platform (the EnTimeMent experimental platform), towards the experimentation of novel generations of time-aware motion perception and prediction systems, by enabling: (i) real-time and synchronized data capture from multiple and different input devices; (ii) automated measurement, processing, and prediction of qualities of movement exploiting the theoretical conceptual framework, and in particular the multiple non-linear stratified temporal dimensions; (iii) delivery of multisensory feedback through multiple output devices, including sonification. The platform needs to be scalable to different scenarios, ranging from controlled laboratory environments to ecological realistic settings. Besides common input devices such as video cameras and wireless on-body microphones, the EnTimeMent platform will support commercial as well as prototypes of motion capture systems, Inertial Measurement Units, devices for real-time physiological data acquisition (e.g., EMG and Functional Near Infrared Spectroscopy [fNIRS]).
- Objective 7: Developing three (3) proofs-of-concepts exploiting both the envisaged platform and libraries – in three different real-world scenarios: healing and support of everyday life in disabled persons, human interaction with non-anthropomorphic robots (living architecture), and sensory-motor entrainment and commitment in sport, dance and music. The three proof-of-concepts are selected to cover a broad variety of real life contexts, so that they can fully demonstrate the functionalities of the developed technologies. The expected result is to demonstrate the effectiveness of the technology from the perspective of its broad future exploitation.
EnTimeMent measurable objectives can be summarised as follows:
