ÖBB – Digital Innovation at ÖBB

Augmented Reality

Augmented reality devices like Google Glass and Microsoft HoloLens mix digital information with reality. Exclusive devices and selected first visions on apps are tested within ÖBB and may become reality in the areas of blended-learning, maintenance-support, technical acceptance & simulation, as well as remote-assistance and facility management.

Detection of emotions and psychological stress

The human face human gives an unconscious indication about the emotional condition and the psychological stress a person is exposed to. Based on the activity of different muscles in the facial area the relative share of the six base emotions can be detected and used for an evaluation.

A sensor is used to capture the facial expression in a non-intrusive way.

The stress detected with this method is emotional stress (as for example happiness is also causing stress) and needs to be associated with health parameters (e.g. EKG, BVP) that are usually captured with Healthbands. Knowledge about the condition and development can help to get insights about immediate and delayed impacts of the emotional state of the drivers and derive Insights for following initiatives and activities.
