The new research, say the scientists, is an opportunity to further human-computer interaction experiences in real time, where the rider and the eBike 'fuse' together to support each other.
Professor Florian 'Floyd' Mueller, Director of the Exertion Games Lab in the Faculty of Information Technology at Monash University and co-creator of this technology adds, "Through our research, we’ve been able to align internal bodily processes, such as neural activity, with machine integration. Via Ena, we are able to explore technology that integrates with the human body to amplify the happiness that being physically active offers, while keeping you safer."
Peripheral awareness, say the researchers, is something that changes without us realizing.
“By actually making these shifts available to people as deliberate feedback on how someone is doing," says co-creator of the project m.c schraefel, Professor of computer science and human performance and Director of the Wellthlab at the University of Southampton UK, "and then using that feedback to help them respond, especially to stressful situations, we are creating new opportunities not just for innovative interactive systems, but for all of us to build better awareness, and potentially to make better healthier choices.”
