This talk will focus on the signal processing and human-computer challenges involved in the Vital Responder project. This is a CMU -Portugal funded project with the main goal to provide secure, reliable and effective first-response systems in critical emergency scenarios. To achieve this goal an interdisciplinary team with expertise in areas such as wearable technology for vital signs, biomedical signal processing, sensor networks and RF Location/Intelligent buildings was formed. During this talk, other projects in which the MediaLab research group at the University of Porto is involved will be presented: CAGE - Computer Assisted Gastroenterology Examination; DigiScope – DIG Itally enhanced stethosCOPEs for clinical usage; T-Life – Therapeutic Learning of Facial Emotions.
