Modulating Human Subjective
Time Experience

Our Project

Process model, showing the loop of stimulation, measurement, and theoretical interpretation for the ChronoPilot project
ChronoPilot focuses on harnessing the plasticity of human time perception to enhance performance, decision-making, and well-being. ChronoPilot aims to alter subjective time experience in real-time by using Extended Reality technologies that engage vision, audition, and haptics.

Our state-of-the-art research identifies sensory and cognitive factors influencing time perception and how they impact performance and well-being in laboratory and real-life contexts.

We develop scientifically tested and validated visual, auditory, and haptic time modulation techniques and tools for seamlessly integrating these effects into immersive applications. These applications include futuristic scenarios (e.g., precision farming with drones) and tasks which allow single-user and multi-user perspectives along with human-machine collaborations.

ChronoPilot employs cutting-edge machine learning techniques to predict subjective timing from physiological signals and from the environment the user is in. We use these predictions to supply the user with the optimal signals to modulate their time perception, performance, and well-being. ChronoPilot’s innovative approach to modulating human time perception has the potential to revolutionize how we manage time in various contexts, enhancing productivity, reducing stress, and improving overall well-being.
