Real-time monitoring system that allows the detection of behaviors associated to fatigue in a non-invasive and non-intrusive way. PerforMetric aims to develop leisure and work context-aware environments that may improve quality of life, mental health and individual performance, as well as productivity in organizations.


The main objective of this project is thus to develop a framework to model the user’s context, focusing on stress, and to provide this information to a Virtual Environment (VE) so that richer communication processes can be developed that allow for its users to communicate in ways that are closer to face-to-face communication. One of our guiding lines is that such framework will be non-intrusive and non-invasive since less intrusive techniques facilitate more accurate and frequent monitoring. Thus being, the estimation of stress will be based on the transparent analysis of the user’s behavior and interaction patterns.
