GACM presents: SFB 1483 – Empathokinesthetic sensing
Sensing techniques and data analysis methods for empathokinesthetic modeling and state estimation
Developing sensor technology and collecting movement data of the human body is the aim of the new Collaborative Research Center SFB 1483, which has just been approved by the German Research Foundation (DFG). The new SFB bears the project title “Empatho-Kinaesthetic Sensor Technology” (EmpkinS). This research aims to combine the external observation of body movements, such as movements of the head, torso and limbs, facial expressions or even a slight twitch under the surface of the skin with internal processes using body function models.
The research team headed by Prof. Dr. Martin Vossiek from the Institute of Microwaves and Photonics and Prof. Dr. Björn Eskofier from the Machine Learning and Data Analytics Lab wants to achieve this by developing methods and technologies that link information from external movements with internal biomedical processes. The external movements are measured with sensory systems, which are also developed within the CRC. The aim of EmpkinS is to enable the simultaneous detection of several body (dys) functions with non-invasive and in the future easily available sensors. The focus of EmpkinS is on medical issues in immunology, neurology and palliative medicine as well as mental illnesses such as depression and stress.
