audEERING is part of the OPTAPEB project funded by BMBF
audEERING has joined the OPTAPEB project which aims to improve anxiety therapy with a sophisticated Virtual Reality Agent. The project is funded by the BMBF and aims to develop an immersive and interactive virtual reality system that assists users in curing phobia. The system will allow to experience situations of phobia and protocol this emotional experience and the user’s behaviour. Various levels of emotional reactions will be monitored continuously and in real time by the system that applies sensors based on innovative e-wear technology, speech signals, and other pervasive technologies (e.g. accelerometres). A further goal of the project is the development of a game-like algorithm to control the user experience of anxieties through exposure therapy and to adapt the course of the therapy to the user needs and the current situation automatically.
audEERING will provide its Audio Intelligence and emotion detection capabilities to the project. We are very proud to be part of this great consortium including Universität Regensburg, Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft IIS, VTplus, ambiotex, Zentrum für Telemedizin Bad Kissingen and New Textile Technologies.
