A low-cost KInematic Detector to assist early diagnosis and objective profiling of ASD

Autism spectrum disorders (ASDs) are a heterogeneous set of neurodevelopmental disorders characterized by deficits in social communication and reciprocal interactions, as well as stereotypic behaviours.Recent identification of atypical kinematic patterns in children and infants at increased risk for ASDs provides new insights into autism diagnostic and objective profiling. KiD intends to help move these insights into the development of a low cost, easy-to-use, yet reliable wearable tracking system, designed to assist detection and classification of ASDs. The main use of the devices will be to assist clinicians to achieve expedited diagnosis, ensuring early and timely access of children at risk of autism to evidence-based intervention programs.

Intention-from-MOVEment Understanding: From moving bodies to interacting minds.

From observing other people’s movements, humans make inferences that go far beyond the surface flow of motion: inferences about unobservable mental states such as goals and intentions. I.MOVE.U intends to provide the first comprehensive account of how intentions are extracted from observed body motions during interaction with conspecifics.
