Research projects - Human behavior

Noldus plays an active role in several leading research projects around the world. Our preferred role is that of a technology partner: we develop tools and methods, and the researchers use and validate them. This way we contribute to scientific progress. At the same time, the projects give us an opportunity to develop relevant new technologies - not only for today's mainstream use but also for tomorrow's needs. If you are setting up a research project and think that Noldus could be a partner in the consortium, please contact us.

Current projects

 

ACROSSING ACROSSING ACROSSING is a multi-disciplinary research project developing advanced flexible new 

AIMS-2-Trials In this project, the partners will make substantial leaps in understanding the underlying mechanisms of autism and developing treatments for it.  Noldus will develop a smart baby suit which measures the activities of babies at risk of autism, 24/7 in the home environment and securely transmits the data to the researchers’ lab.

Brainview BRAINVIEW This Horizon 2020 project is about creating an integrated view on disruptions of early brain development.
BrainWave BrainWave The BrainWave project will develop a wearable brainwave (EEG) processing platform enabling 24/7 healthcare of Parkison's and epilepsy patients.
Topsecor Agri&Food Breaking habits for the better

In this project, the partners experimentally research the fundamental scientific understanding of consumers’ food habits and choice behavior and develop new tools and methods to enable that.

CAS

Citius Altius Sanius Citius Altius Sanius means faster, higher, healthier and this project will focus research into new technologies which can help prevent sports injuries.

Cognitive Village (CogAge) Cognitive Village Cognitive Village (CogAge) is a German project in which new human-centred, mobile and dynamic technology are being developed to assist elderly people in a rural village.

Coach Assist Coach Assist Using beyond state-of-the-art techniques for sensing and tracking of athlete's position, movement and physiology, combined with new sensor fusion and analysis software, we will bring a ground-breaking solution onto the market which will give professional sports coaches far greater actionable insights into the performance and quality of their teams than anything that is currently available.

DAISY DAISY-2 In this project, a radically new type of radar technology is being developed. Noldus will test its applicability as a tracking technology for behavioral data in a number of situations, such as consumer behavior and people-tracking in which its guarantee of anonymity will be of benefit.
DriveLab for health DriveLab for Health Noldus' DriveLab solution is an integrated setup for measuring the behavior of someone using a driving simulator. DriveLab was originally created for human factors research and in this project, it will be further developed with particular attention to the possibilities for research into the impact of diseases and ageing on driving ability.
eNHANCE eNHANCE This Horizon 2002 project develops technology to detect the intention of a user of a prosthetic limb, so that the limb can carry out the user's wishes more effectively.

E-Watch eWatch This project will develop the next generation of wrist-worn wearable devices which will be able to measure physiology much more accurately and with more parameters than currently possible. Noldus will develop a software platform for researchers using these devices and validate a number of research use cases.
 

WePod

IAT

This INTERREG project will work on various aspects of cross-border automated transport including truck platooning, automated cars (WEpods) and parcel delivery. Human factors (how do passengers and other road users react to and experience the automated vehicles) is an important aspect.


MIND project MIND In the Medical Innovation Netherlands - Germany project, we are developing a number of behavioural-based smart devices, including using augmented reality glasses to aid Parkinsons' patients.

PRAUTOCOL

Prautocol The technical development of autonomous cars is proceeding at a fast pace and this raises important questions about the role of the 'drivers' of those vehicles. As their role changes from actively driving more to monitoring, how can we ensure that it is still safe on our roads? Prautocol investigates the role of testing and certification of both the car and the operator in autonomous cars.

MaxMobiel in SMILE project

SMILE SMILE investigates the opportunities of developments in ‘ambient intelligence’ for improving the safety situation for low-speed vehicles for older drivers.

VIBE

VIBE In this project about medical simulation and training, Noldus will develop tools for measuring human behavior in virtual environment.

Recently completed projects


FOODCOST project FOODCOST This ERASMUS Plus project aims to modernize and improve university education in the field of food production, food quality and consumer studies through synergistic effects of international cooperation, transfer of innovations and creation of new values in the project consortium of 10 partners in 9 countries.
iCARE iCARE Improving Children's Auditory REhabilitation (iCARE) was an ITN training project focussing on improving the communication of children with a hearing impairment in which Noldus developed a tool to automate measuring communication.

iCarenet The iCareNet eating dataset is available from the project page.

LetItFlow LetItFlow This project produces IT tools to support elderly workers in healthcare so that they can continue to work effectively despite changes in knowledge and technology.
Miraculous Life Miraculous Life The aim of the Miraculous-Life project was to develop an innovative user-centric technological solution, the Virtual Support Partner, attending to an elderly person in his or her daily needs.

VER

Virtual Emotion Reader This project is developing a new system for measuring consumer choice behaviour, including emotions whilst the subjects are eating.

SportsConnected2Society SportsConnected2Society The performance of sportspeople is increasingly measured with a variety of digital devices.  In this project, the companies producing those devices cooperate together to enable integration of the various data streams, so that sports scientists and coaches can get a more complete picture of what is going on in the mind and body of the sports person.
