Research, innovation and development are genuine vocations of Next2u. We investigate people emotions by a, non-intrusive, contact-less assessment of their psycophysiological state, by the means of intelligent IR thermal imaging and affective computing, so by overcoming the intrinsic limits of other techniques based only of behavioral assessments. Think of what such information can do for your research or your business, either whether it is matter of improving safety of workplaces and tasks of the workers or of increasing safety at driving or, even, by augmenting the pleasure itself of driving, or facilitating the interaction between companion robots and children or elders.
Ask us how we can shape the future together.
The driver monitoring project will introduce a compact, purely IR thermal imaging based system that aims to monitor the driver to improve the driving experience, while preventing dangers due to stress, discomfort, weariness that tipically occour during long haul roadtrips, commuting, night time driving.
Affective computing is the core field of research at Next2U. We empower machines to sense the emotions and the physiology of the users without any disturbance, so to favor the most natural possible form of human-machine interaction.
We make it by means of smart IR thermal imaging and artificial intelligence. Our solutions work either in stan alone modality or can be integrated and complement any other existing solution
Projects on robotics are all aimed at providing to robots the ability to sense emotions of the subject they are interacting with. It has been proved how this approach can make humans feel the robot more human-like and thus improving the interactions between subject and robot.
Moreover, by monitoring psychophysiological parameters we can provide useful informations in healthcare assistance settings.
