The Biosignals Lab (see Figure) at the Cognitive Systems Lab (CSL) consists of an interaction space (5x4m) which allows to blend real with virtual reality interactions .
The Biosignals lab is fully equipped with a range of sensory devices to capture biosignals resulting from human behaviour like speech, motion, eye gaze, muscle and brain activities under both controlled and less restricted open-space conditions.
