CybSPEED: Cyber-physical systems for pedagogical rehabilitation in special education

The project is implemented under a program Marie Skłodowska Curie - "Exchange of staff for research and innovation" - to Horizon 2020: H2020-MSCA-RISE-2017: Research and Innovation Staff Exchange. Duration 48 months. The aim of the project is to propose new methods of analysis, modeling, synthesis and implementation of cyberphysical systems in special education through interdisciplinary research of the brain-computer interface for the purposes of robotics, cognitive biometrics and artificial intelligence in humanoid and nonhumanoid platforms.

Through the project CybSPEED many scenarios of human-robot interaction will be realized, including games, pedagogical tasks and stage behavior, in which children and adults will develop abilities, which in standard situations are a problem for them. The complex research will be conducted in an interdisciplinary and inter-sectoral network of organizations from Bulgaria, Spain, France, Greece, Chile, Morocco and Japan.
