iVOICE – integrated VIOce analysis of satellite Communications Embedded in time and safety-critical environment, funded by the European Space Agency (ESA).

Objectives of iVOICE

Every year there are numerous casualties due to mental strain and fatigue in operators. 

One innovative and very promising way of detecting this mental stain and fatigue is by analysing voice communication.

This study evaluates improvements to existing voice analysis technologies, coupled with high fidelity communications signal and GPS data, aiming to detect situations of mental strain and fatigue in operators and offer a new technology – iVOICE.

The project focus is the potential to develop services linked to high-risk and high-stress environments or dislocated domains, including heavy equipment operation, ground and air transportation for private and commercial use.

The applications for future use will range from distributed health care for remotely living populations to peace-keeping communication and navigation services.
