dHealth Best Poster Award: Eva Hollauf, Oliver Jung, Veronika Hornung-Prähauser

Best Poster Award bei der dHealth 2023

Our colleagues Oliver Jung, Eva Hollauf and Veronika Hornung-Prähauser, together with Tess den Uyl and Kasper van Zon from VicarVision in Amsterdam, were awarded the Best Poster Award at dHealth 2023.

The award-winning research is dedicated to promoting healthy ageing with the help of a robotic assistance system and the recognition of emotions:

The ageing population brings challenges such as loneliness, limited mobility and medical problems. To address these issues, a proposed robotic platform offers personalised suggestions to change wellbeing. Developed through a user-centred process involving surveys and focus groups, and tested with an initial prototype, the system is ideal for people with ‘special social needs’. Technical results suggest that emotion recognition is valuable, with attention and valence being the most important metrics. User acceptance and the quality of face/speech analysis for older users remain a challenge.
