Abstract

Cognitive behavioral systems would definitely benefit from a supporting technology able to automatically recognize the context where humans operate, their gestures and even facial expressions. Such capability poses challenges for many researchers in various fields because the ultimate goal is to transfer to machines the human capability of representing and reasoning on the environment and its elements. The automation can be achieved through a supporting infrastructure able to capture a huge amount of information from the environment, much more than humans do, and sending it to a processing unit able to build a representation of the context that would catch all elements necessary to interpret the specific environment. The goal of this paper is to present the VISION infrastructure and how it can support cognitive systems. Indeed, VISION is a software/hardware infrastructure that overcomes the limitations of current technology for Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) providing broadband wireless links for 3D video streaming with very high reliability, obtained by an innovative reconfigurable context and resource. aware middleware for WSNs. We show VISION at work on the communicative impaired children scenario.
