Abstract
Diabetes type I is a chronic disease that requires strict supervision. MyDiabetes is a utility application for diabetic users. This application served as basis to develop a logical unit, composed of logical rules, translated from medical protocols and guidelines, to advise the user. The data in the application is a source of knowledge about the user's health state and diabetes intrinsic characteristics. An existing concern is the weak user adherence and consequential data absence. The implemented solutions were gamification and an interface rework. As later confirmed through a survey, users feel captivated by appealing interfaces, achievements and medals. In a near future, we will resume our work with the S. Joao's hospital, with a new trial and volunteers. User testing will be used to validate the gamification techniques.

Abstract
In this work an acoustic tag detector was developed for the integration in a mobile robotic fish tracking architecture. The present paper presents both the developed system and preliminary results with particular emphasis of the developed solution with the tag manufacturer receiver. The work has been developed in the context of the MYTAG Portuguese RD project, addressing the study and characterisation of the European flounder migrations in the northern estuarine environments of Portugal. The detector is to be integrated in a tracking system using autonomous surface vehicles and fixed buoys. The main objective is to detect tags inserted surgically in flounders for the MYTAG project, while simultaneously identifying them. A detector solution is presented allowing for the detection and identification of V7 VEMCO tags and preliminary comparative results with the commercially available manufacturer receivers are also presented and discussed. © 2018 IEEE.
