Improving contextual awareness of a robot through the analysis of acoustic information - ROXAC


The main objective of ROXAC project is to develop a robust sound environment analysis system, for the Tiago service robot, capable to identify in everyday life various normal, abnormal and distress conditions.

Specific objectives:
  • Study of hardware, operating system and available procedures for Tiago servicerobot;
  • Identification of its acoustic performance;
  • Data acquisition with Tiago service robot;
  • Development of experimental model of sound analysis;
  • Implementation and testing of the experimental model;
  • Results validation through testing under real conditions at CITST;
  • Establishment of research topics for master and doctoral students (in the project domain);
  • Planning internships for master and doctoral students;
  • Contribution to the training of young researchers (master and doctoral).
