Living with supportive intelligence
Background and Goals
Within a feasability study addressing smart homes and user centered design, the project „WUI – Wohnen mit unterstützender Intelligenz“ was carried out in cooperation with the TU Vienna. A prototype of an intelligent flat for seniors was developed and tested in a real life situation at the Seniorenzentrum Schwechat. The system collects environmental data of the flat/occupant and tries to infer a behaviour pattern. This way critical situations can be detected and in case of emergency help can be called. The aim is to raise safety and comfort at home.
The results were directly adopted by the project eHome ￫.
