Projects

Senception Lda (since Oct 2013): 

Spin-off project from COPELABS - Association for the Research and Development in Cognitive and People-centric Computing - R&D unit. Its know-how derives partially from the European project ULOOP - User-centric Wireless Local Loop (2010-2013).

Our vision is to  improve the daily citizen's lives via  the application of pervasive, user-friendly technology. To achieve this vision, Senception has the mission to  design and to produce pervasive technology that assists in capturing and infering interactions among people and their surroundings

CitySense(SITI internal project: 2011 - 2013):
Investigation of large-scale opportunistic sensing technology able to augment people daily experience in urban scenarios based on the intelligent analysis of sensorial data opportunistically collected from the environment.

DTN-Amazon(SITI - University Federal of Pará Cooperation: 2012 - 2014):
Investigation of information centric architecture for opportunistic network tolerant to delays and disuption.

WiNeMo Cost Action (European Science Foundation: 2010 - 2014) / Portuguese representative in the Management Committee:
The Action aims to increase the knowledge and to coordinate research efforts of national and international projects in the area of Wireless Networking for Moving Objects (WiNeMO).
