Smart glasses for multifacEted visual loss mitigation and chronic disEase prevention indicator for healthier, saFer, and more productive workplAce foR ageing population
Foundation of Research and Technology – HELLAS participates in the See Far project funded by the European Commission within the Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation program with € 4M for the next 3 years. Twelve partners from five different countries, including universities, research centers and enterprises, participate in the project, providing the necessary experience to ensure the success of the project in all its stages of development.
See Far consists of the See Far smart glasses and the See Far mobile application. It is a digitally enabled adaptive solution supporting ageing workforce with vision deficiencies, an age-related condition, to remain actively involved in professional life, helping them to sustain and renew their work and personal life–related skills and support an independent active and healthy lifestyle.
This solution will ensure the creation of an adaptive smart working and living environment (augmented reality workspace). See Far smart glasses are adapted to the needs of the users and optimize their view empowering older adults to solve the most meaningful problems, transforming how they design, build, maintain and collaborate in their organization, perceiving the world conveniently and enjoying a safer exploration in an indoor/outdoor environment. In order this to be achieved a personalized visual assistant will be developed capturing the condition of the eye, detecting the problem and provide the appropriate adjustment through the integration of gaze tracking, machine learning and augmented reality technologies.
The Unit of Medical Technology and Intelligent Information Systems of the Institute of Molecular Biology and Biotechnology and the Computational BioMedicine Laboratory of the Institute of Computer Science of FORTH participate in the See Far project.
