The Multimedia/Multimodal Signal Analysis and Enhancement Laboratory (MuSAE Lab) conducts research at the crossroads of biomedical engineering and telecommunications. The MuSAE Lab develops award-winning, biologically inspired signal processing techniques with applications in three areas: multimedia communications, health diagnosis, and human/machine interaction. Data is used to develop human models that will be incorporated into next generation technologies.
The MuSAE Lab boasts:
The following systems are available for neurophysiological signal acquisition:
EMOTIV EPOC+ headset
Near-infrared Spectroscopy (NIRS)
Empatica E4 wristband
The MuSAE Lab is available to INRS Énergie Matériaux Télécommunications Research Centre faculty, students, and staff for their research projects.
Lab resources and expertise can also be used for external collaborations or research and development contracts.
