The "Showroom" concept is an interactive showroom which aims to highlight and illustrate the results that emerge from Idiap's research. This "Technology Showcase" is a tool used for public communication. It focuses on the different institute's visitors such as researchers, industrialists and students. This room is interactive which means it includes touch screens with mini-film presentation, demonstrators (using technologies such as speech processing, biometric authentication, object recognition, etc.).
In addition to this, the room is equipped with microphones and cameras that record the visitors' movements and actions in order to enable the detection of people (including their mutual interactions).
