TECHNOLOGY AND FACILITIES

 EYE TRACKING 
The HIT centre is equipped with several remote and head-mounted devices that allow to monitor the eye movements, several pupillometric indices and other eye-related measures (e.g. saccades, microsaccades, blinks). These tools can be coupled with other instruments in order to concurrently co-register different physiological signals (e.g. EEG, EDA, fEMG, HR). More

 

 PHYSIOLOGICAL AND NEURAL MEASUREMENT  
HIT centre is equipped with several systems that allow the aquisition and elaboration of psychophysiological signals resulting from the activities of both the central nervous system (electroencephalographic signals) and the peripheral nervous system (e.g. heart rate, electrodermal activity, respiration rate). More

 


 BODY AND HANDS ACTIVITY TRACKING 
The HIT centre is equipped with several motion sensing input devices (e.g. Kinect One, 360, and leap motion). These tools can be utilized in order to control and interact with consoles/computers without the need for a game controller that is by means of body and hands gestures. One of the principal methods by which body or hands movements can be electronically monitored, in a context of human-computer interaction, is the optical detection. More

 VIRTUAL AND AUGMENTED REALITY 
HIT centre is equipped with highly immersive virtual reality helmets and augmented reality glasses. The lab also has a mixed-reality space called eXperience Induction Machine (XIM2), Body haptic interfaces and vibrotactile and data gloves. Further technologies are: high definition monitors, autostereoscopic 3D displays, last generation powerful computers and videorecording digital equipment. The lab also includes a riding training simulator. More

 TDCS/TMS 
Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) and Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (TDCS) are both non-invasive methods for stimulating parts of the brain. TMS and TDCS are active neuro devices, in the sense that they change the firing rates and activity levels of neurons, and groups of neurons in the brain. Major differences between TMS and TDCS are described below. More
 


 VIDEO RECORDING, EDITING AND ANALYSIS 
In qualitative research, it is crucial for the researcher to ask whether, in light of his or her object and goals, it would be more appropriate to conduct systematic observations, to produce a handwritten or recorded field journal, to conduct interviews (structured or not), to photograph, to videotape and so on. More




 DRONE AND ROBOTIC TECHNOLOGY 
The HIT centre is equipped by all these equipments that allow to create and prototype innovative and advanced instrumentation for scientific research. More




 PRINTING 
In computing, a printer is a peripheral which makes a persistent human readable representation of graphics or text on paper or similar physical media. A 3D printer is a device for making a three-dimensional object from a 3D model or other electronic data source through additive processes in which successive layers of material...
