Ubiquitous Computing Applications Laboratory (UbiCA Lab)
Handheld device pointing at the smart shelf, where the AR marked is visible. Close up view of the handheld screen, showing the superimposed item information, and the green square indicating the active area i.e. the user clicked location.
Back of a Smart Shelf Showing the RFID System.
This picture shows an User-Object Interaction system. The system is equipped with off-the-shelf Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) antennas and Light Dependent Resistor (LDR) sensors. This system not only detects the user-object interactions through the LDRs, by implementing the RFID technology it is possible to identify the object interacted.
User interacting with the smart shelf through Augmented Reality interfaces.
The Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) Robot is an autonomous mobile solution able to identify and locate passive electronic labels in any given area.
Full-Body Interaction Lab
The Full-Body Interaction Lab is focussed on understanding the underlying principles supporting the benefits from Full-Body Interaction in all the application spectrum. It also provides infrastructure and support for designing, developing and assessing real world applications especially in the areas of Play, Learning and Special Needs and especially for children.
Floor projection system with a tiled portable screen of 6x6 meters. Total projection resolution: 1920x1920 pixels.
Tracking system: computer vision based on four colour cameras which track lit colour markers. Transportable.
Large inflatable slide (8x8x4m) augmented with interactive technology. Large projection area 4x3 meters. Computer Vision based tracking system working with infra red camera and lighting.
3x2 meters rear-projection reflection-based multi-touch screen for full body interaction.
The Synthetic Perceptive, Emotive and Cognitive Systems Labs (SPECS)
Virtual Reality Lab
An immersive room equipped with a number of sensors and effectors that has been constructed to conduct experiment in mixed-reality.
A virtual reality head-mounted display. We use the oculus to study virtual navigation, spatial memory and much more.
The virtual reality lab is an infrastructure with the latest generation hardware and immersive VR technologies enhanced with different types of wearable, unobtrusive sensors capable of measuring human psychophysiological signals.
This laboratory provides several types of robots including humanoid robots such as the iCub and the Nao, ground vehicles (wheeled and tracked vehicles), flying robots (blimp based and quadrocopters), a number of robot arenas, a tracking infrastructure and a 3 x 4 m. long wind tunnel for the study of chemotactic behaviors.
The rehabilitation lab uses all Virtual Reality infrastructures
A physical space in the Library / CRAI Poblenou to promote learning , sharing knowledge and ideas and collaboration on topics such as technology, media or digital arts.
Artificial Intelligence (AI)
Nao robots are programmable humanoid robots that can perform a lot of things like play football, talk and recognize you.
Image Processing for Enhanced Cinematography (IP4EC)
in cinema industry at post production stage, reproduction of colors for different display devices such as digital cinema projectors and HDTV is necessary, developing perceptual gamut mapping algorithms to achieve this task without the supervision of colorists.
High Performance Computing
The SNOW Linux Cluster consists of 15 compute nodes, 11 of which have four 16-core processors per node, and the remaining 4 nodes have two quad-core processor each, for a total of 736 cores. It is configured with 3144Gb of total memory and 13TB of NFS disk space, although more storage can be transparently added. Its theoretical computer performance peak, according to the manufacturer specifications, has the capacity of 8490 Gflops
