SENSATION will deliver a wide range of micro and nanosensor technologies to provide unobtrusive, cost-effective, real-time monitoring, detection and prediction of human physiological state in relation to wakefulness, fatigue and stress anytime, everywhere and for everybody. The fundamental results from the multidisciplinary research effort will include micro and nanosensor technologies of various kinds (brain biosensing, wearable, posture/motility, eye-related, autonomic functions, etc.), innovative, wearable power sources, improved signal processing with computational intelligence, telematic technologies for body / local / wide area signal transmission, sleep research and system integration development.

The different states of human brain will be analysed within (SubProject) SP1: large databases of recordings of normal and involuntary (during task-execution) transition from wakefulness to sleep from hundreds of people will be created and analysed to serve as development and reference basis.


In SP2, 17 micro sensors and 2 nano sensors will be developed. These include brain monitoring, wearable, eye-related posture and motility and autonomic functions sensors; all wirelessly integrated through a body/local/wide area network. These sensors will be combined to provide medical systems for medical diagnosis and treatment within SP3.

They will be also integrated in a system for operator's hypovigilance detection and prediction, to be used in various industrial operations and environments within SP4. The overall IP is coordinated by a series of cross-project activities within Subproject 5, which cover management, training, system architecture, dissemination, evaluation, exploitation, user awareness enhancement, standardisation, ethical and legal issues.
