s autonomy. The system will be designed to inform and assist the user
and his/her caregivers through monitoring and mobility help. Thus, we
plan to contribute to the development of the next generation of
assistive devices for older persons or people with disabilities so that
they can be self-dependent as long as possible. We focus on add-ons to
be compatible with existing technologies and to achieve an easier
integration into existing systems. We also aim at adaptive systems as
transparent, and consequently, easy to use to the person as possible.
Scalability is meant to include or remove devices from the system in a
simple, intuitive way. The focus is the development of an adaptive
biosensor-based module that measures biometric data, learn to classify
them in order to conclude about changes in affectives states like
Biosensor-based assistance module
The applicant will develop an adaptive biosensor-based assistance
module. First typical cognitive, sensory, and motor deficits in a target
population have to be assessed and have to be represented in a knowledge
base. Second online information will be received from a biosensor module
sensitive to the emotional and attentive states of the user. Based on
both types of information a profile of the user will be generated,
continuously updated and used for the adaptive user support. A platform
for this assistance module will be an intelligent walker and an
autonomous wheelchair developed in SHARE-it.
Practical experience in a number of the following areas is desired:
software design and development
multi-sensor user activity profiles/ multisensory information processing
processing of biometrical and physiological data
knowledge-based systems and uncertainty management
Additional knowledge that would be appreciated:
experience with international research projects
interest in psychological/medical applications
The successful applicant of the position is expected to autonomously
communicate and interact with the European cooperation partners that
jointly develop the SHARE-it modules and platforms. The requisites for
the position is a graduation in a relevant area or a master / diploma in
computer science as well as interest in basic and applied research,
and/or experience in a similar project field.
As the University of Bremen intends to increase the proportion of female
employees in science women are particularly encouraged to apply.
In case of equal personal aptitudes and qualification disabled persons
will be given priority.
