PROJECTS AND ACTIVITIES
Some companies and institutions with whom we have collaborated:
We defined attachment to virtual and intangible objects and possessions. The interest of the project was to know if people would develop emotional attachment to objects and virtual possessions, similar to what it happens with physical possessions. The final goal of the project was to develop applications that would facilitate the development of this attachment to virtual objects.
We were involved in a project on technological innovation funded by the Ministry of Industry. The project whose acronym was Mio! was aimed at designing technology that allows providing ubiquitous services in intelligent environments and adapted to each individual and its context, using the mobile terminal as a basis for interaction with both services provided by companies, as with micraservices created and provided by the users themselves in mobility.

We are currently involved in the development of two different projects: AIRPORTS and AUTOPACE. The former applies to the the development of a computational model to measure and predict the mental workload that an air traffic controller supports in her/his work. The latter will stick on the key aspects of the human performance in a highly automated ATM system to allow the identification of the competences and training that maximises automation benefits.
We collaborated in the development of a telediagnosis system, which had the function of diagnosing possible skin diseases in users living in no-hospital areas. It has been calculated that an early diagnosis can solve many skin problems, hence, the difficulty of accessing frequent health check-ups by a large part of the population motivated the study.
