Maestroo (2011)

Maestroo - an Immersive Sensing Tool (2011)


Software (discontinued)


Maeestroo is a cooperative sensing middleware which can seamlessly collect information from the most varied sensors of a device, to an open platform, being the transmission open and based on IP. Maestroo has been developed in the context of the CitySense project.

Maestroo main features are:

  • Flexible configuration of network access for data collection
  • Virtual sensors - sensors "borrowed from other devices"
  • Automatic detection of sensors available
  • User-friendly selection of sensors for data gathering
  • Visualizer - capability to provide state collected on a specific visualizing tool




Maestroo is available for the Android platform, as well as for Windows phones.



The Team


Maestroo is middleware developed in the context of the CitySense project, by SITI/COPELABS, Universidade Lusófona.


The core team of Maestroo is composed by:

  • Ricardo Barbosa, MSc student at Universidade Lusófona/SITILabs and main responsible for the implementation of Maestroo.
  • Bruno Batista, supervisor (SITILabs researcher and PhD student at MAP-i Doctoral Programme)
  • Paulo Mendes, supervisor and CitySense scientific coordinator (SITILabs Scientific Director for Innovation)

Latest Research

SITI - Informatics Systems and Technologies Group

SITI w400SITI is focused upon user-centric trends that are emerging in several fields of Information and Communication Technology (ICT), OSI Layers 2 and 3. As in other grassroots movements, the user will have an active say concerning services provided and consequently, concerning the techno-social environment that surrounds him/her.

CTIP - Technology Intensive Psychology Group

CTIP w400This group is based (i.e. integrated members) on a core of scientifically active researchers from the former CEPCA (Pedro Gamito, Jorge Oliveira, Rodrigo Brito, Paulo Lopes, and Ana Loureiro) 2 more recent PhDs (Cristina Camilo and Bárbara Gonzalez). Note, however, that the CEPCA team (team size, funding and indicators included in 5.) changed substantially since 2008, when it had 8 PhDs (of which only PG remains) and 5 groups. In 2011-13 the team grew to 14 integrated PhDs in 2-3 groups. By 2013, however, it was clear that the bulk of CEPCA output of international level (13 of the 14 indicators in table 5.) was the responsibility of the neurocognitive/cyber therapy-focused group, with only 3 PhD and 2 non-PhD members (PI: PG). The inevitable consolidation of CEPCA around this core group pointed to the desirability of joining forces with an informatics team – SITILABS – to create COPELABS as an interdisciplinary R&D unit (see Description of the R&D unit).
