The tPOT Research Group is part of the Technological University Dublin's School of Electrical Engineering Systems. The group is based in the Focas Institute, adjacent to TU Dublin's Kevin St campus. The group was established in May 2007, consolidating its members' ongoing research into technology that interacts with humans or with the human body - what we call People Oriented Technology (POT). The group's activities include research and teaching in biomedical signal engineering, human-machine interfaces, assistive technology and health informatics.
The Smart Dementia Care project will benefit from the continual involvement of the Dementia Research Advisory Team, facilitated by The Alzheimer Society of Ireland. The team consists of people living with dementia and caregivers who are willing to actively participate in research in a Person Public Involvement (PPI) capacity by providing consultation, feedback, and expertise from lived experience. The technology developed as part of the Smart Dementia Care project will be co-designed and evaluated with members of Dementia Research Advisory Team.
