This paper is related to ambient intelligence systems capable of locating and tracking humans. These are the first steps of a human-centered ambient intelligent system, ranging from data acquisition to robust tracking, for the purpose of interpreting human behaviors in monitored environments. The first objective is to improve human detection through the fusion of thermal-infrared and color video segmentation. On the level following to segmentation, the traditional tracking problems (e.g. occlusions, crossings, etc.) are faced. Finally, the use of several classifiers such as support-vector machines and artificial neural networks are proposed to enhance the tracking level. The work proposes a combination of both color and thermal infrared spectra in human tracking. © 2011 IEEE. Source

The INT3-Horus framework, dedicated to intelligent monitoring and activity interpretation with special application in advanced surveillance systems, is introduced. INT3-Horus is presented in two parts. This paper introduces the first part which is dedicated to provide a general description of the approach. The following aspects of the proposal are highlighted: the framework is multisensory by nature and includes information fusion abilities; it is based on the model-view-controller paradigm; it is defined as a hybrid distributed system; it incorporates a Common Model that houses the data structures to support the exchange of information between levels of the framework. The currently available INT3-Horus processing levels are also described in this paper. The second part introduces the ontological model of the framework [14]. © 2012 The authors and IOS Press.

Currently, there are many solutions in the field of assistive technologies addressing some kinds of disabilities. Each solution has opted for very specific and incompatible technologies. Recently, new devices initially destined to electronic entertainment are appearing. These kind of devices have joined in a single sensor various types of technologies typical for assistance. In this paper, we show how theses kind of sensors also called RGB-D sensors are capable of replacing traditional heterogeneous technologies and a single device covers several solutions in the field of multimodal human-computer interaction and assistive technologies. Furthermore, a prototype of a software equivalent to a traditional assistive technology product is shown. Copyright 2012 ACM. Source

Fall detection is an emergent problem in pattern recognition. In this paper, a novel approach which enables to identify a type of a fall and reconstruct its characteristics is presented. The features detected include the position previous to a fall, the direction and velocity of a fall, and the postfall inactivity. Video sequences containing a possible fall are analysed image by image using the lateral inhibition in accumulative computation method. With this aim, the region of interest of human figures is examined in each image, and geometrical and kinematic characteristics for the sequence are calculated. The approach is valid in colour and in infrared video. © 2013 Antonio Fernández-Caballero et al. Source

After several months of therapeutic work on Mateo, a child with special needs, the therapist of the Child Development and Early Intervention Centre (CDIAT) observed with astonishment how the child correctly associated the fruits with the corresponding pictograms. That was after only a few sessions using the Interactive Fruit Panel presented in this article. The interactive application described in this paper is a way to digitize one of the games commonly used by CDIAT therapists to help children to associate real objects (fruits in this case) with their graphical representation (pictogram) in a therapeutic activity using real objects as the interactive basis. This article summarizes the description of the proposed system, as well as the results obtained from a pilot test with real participants in collaboration with professionals from CDIAT. The preliminary results show how children with special needs achieved learning goals faster with the interactive panel, and how the children's attention improved. © 2015 ACM. Source
