Task Optical Computer Recognition of Stress, Affect and Fatigue During Performance in Spaceflight (Completed)
Last Published:  07/29/22 01:33:24 PM (Central)
Short Title: OCR Spaceflight
Responsible HRP Element: Behavioral Health and Performance
Collaborating Org(s):
National Space Biomedical Research Institute (NSBRI)
Funding Status: Completed - Task completed and produced a deliverable
Procurement Mechanism(s):
  1. Create an OCR system capable of monitoring facial displays of specific emotions (i.e. angry, happy and sad).
  2. Improve our current OCR system's ability to detect facial expressions of high versus low performance-induced stress.
  3. Develop OCR algorithms to identify fatigue due to sleep loss based on slow eyelid closures (PERCLOS).
  4. Test the technical feasibility of data acquisition and reliability of the advanced OCR system in spaceflight analogs that contain neurobehavioral stressors relevant to spaceflight (e.g., NEEMO).
