Bilateral Meetings

  • Wednesday 10:40 h – 13:00 h
  • Wednesday 14:00 h – 18:00 h
DescriptionWith twenty three years of existence, CCG – Centre for Computer Graphics dedicates its activity to applied research and development, in the fields of computer graphics, information, communication and electronic technologies. It works at both the national and international level. One of its applied research domains is UMC – Urban and Mobile Computing that the technical and scientific capability to enroll and create innovative solutions, among other, for:
- Indoor positioning and navigation;
- Mobile application development;
- Urban sensing;
- Intelligent transportation systems (ITS);
- Ambient assisted living (AAL);
- Wireless sensor networks;
- Smart spaces.
These skills and competences have been applied and enriched through the participation in many research and industry projects, like for example in the field of Ambient Assisted Living, context awareness digital content distribution, real time location system (for hospitals), remote monitoring of chronical diseases, mobile solutions for tourism, etc.

        Smart sensing

        We offer expertise in the creation of advanced solutions with wireless sensors to acquire data from the environment or from a person (using health/medical devices like scales, blood pressure, oximeters, etc).
        We have experience in development of complete solutions including client (mobile) applications to collect data from sensors and to interact with the end users and server side solution to store, integrate and analyse collected data.

        Smart boxes

        We can create advanced pervasive solutions to enable the interaction between caregiver/medical staff and the elderly or patients. The interaction can done using different technologies and interfaces (including TV, smart phones, desktop computers or embedded devices) and can include the ability to automatically collect data from medical sensors.
