Qualisys has delivered a complete 8 camera system to the Humanities Lab in Lund, Sweden.
The lab is a new cross-disciplinary lab-environment for research and education concerning culture, communication and cognition. It has a basic humanities profile, but it is also – and most importantly – designed also to attract those researchers from the medical, natural and technical sciences who are interested in culture, human (including man- machine) communication, and cognition.
The research lab consists of a number of – potentially interacting – special lab modules: an Eye-tracking lab, a (Virtual) Reality lab, an Electrophysiology lab (ERP-measurement), an Acoustics lab with an echo-free chamber, and a Body-tracking lab.
In cooperation with the Centre for Technical Rehabilitation Research at Lund University, they have recently set up a Tactile Lab with the world’s first automatic finger-tracker, making it possible to compare, for example, visual reading in real-time in sighted persons with tactile reading in real- time in congenitally blind subjects.
The experiment studios can house up to ten subjects simultaneously, making it possible to study, for example, gaze and gestures during a round-table negotiation.
