Anthropomatics and Biological Engineering

The term Anthropomatics includes the words "Anthropos", the human being, as well as "Metric" and "Automation", thus indicating the science of the symbiosis between man and machine.

Researchers at KCIST study the interaction between humans and machines. A major goal is the design and development of human-machine interfaces for different application areas, amongst others:

  • automatic language detection and translation
  • cognitive systems to support the surgeon
  • users in interaction with hand-held power tools
  • driver monitoring and driver assistance systems
  • assistive technology for people with impairment, in particular people with seeing impairments
  • interactive systems for indexing and searching in multimedia content
