Topic: Improving and fostering active living and wellness of people with dementia (PWD) from sensing to analytics
It is necessary to promote new care and treatment strategies to keep PWD living independently at home for longer. Monitoring the behaviour and patterns of daily activities of PWD allows to identify changes that may help with the detection of anomalies, so as to provide prompt help and treatment. Therefore, we propose research, development and evaluation of advanced localization techniques making use of the latest smart devices available in the market with the aim of developing innovative and enhanced location-based services that foster active living and wellness of PWD. Technical environment: Signal processing, data fusion, machine learning and artificial intelligence techniques on data coming from satellite navigation systems, inertial sensors and/or RF interfaces, among others.
Candidates should have a first class or good 2.1 honours degree in Software Engineering, Computer Engineering or Telecommunications Engineering (other equivalent disciplines will be also considered). An appropriate degree at Master Level will be mandatory in order to access to the PhD program (applicants finishing a Master’s degree along the 2020-21 academic year will also be considered). Proficiency in spoken and written English is desired; knowledge of Spanish is not a requirement. To be eligible, candidates must become a full-time worker at DeustoTech facilities.
