Competitive advantage

  • Decades of accumulated knowledge and algorithms for real-time human performance
  • Software that allows the system to operate with any commercial off-the-shelf system
  • Expertise to transform lab-based psychology into in situ real-time metrics
  • A technology that works with different data sources and is robust against loss of a data source. A technology that assesses human mental states on a second-by-second basis and integrates them to adapt AI and automation to the human.


  • Real-time improved understanding of human performance and behaviour in organisations
  • Improved decision making through real-time cognitive augmentation
  • Trusted human-machine environments

Successful applications

  • eLearning commercialisation, Smart Sparrow
  • Real-time assessment of human performance in air traffic control systems
  • Trusted human-autonomy teaming in teleoperation
  • User-task co-adaptation for effective interactive simulation environments, offering a generic bi-directional human-machine communication system that allows users to adapt their cognitive load to a task and adapting the task to the user

Capabilities and facilities

  • An integrated 12-seat laboratory—using a variety of sensors including EEG, Kinect, Eye Tracker, and physiological sensors—for cognitive and behavioural human performance measurement
  • High-fidelity simulation environments including air-traffic management and uninhabited all-domains vehicles (UxVs) modelling
  • State-of-the-art defence simulation environments including Virtual Battlespace System
  • The technology uses multiple data sources including electroencephalography (EEG), facial expressions, language, speech, keyboard, and vibrations
