DOMUS' infrastructure

DOMUS benefits from a rich and versatile research infrastructure to design, implement, and assess cognitive orthotics. This infrastructure integrates three variations on the living lab concept:

  1. a smart apartment on the campus enabling short term studies in technology rich simulated housing;
  2. a living lab in an alternative housing unit for people with traumatic brain injury enabling long term ecological studies in a technology rich real housing;
  3. at home, such as seniors' residences and personal residences (apartments and houses), enabling long term ecological studies in a mobile and agile technology environment.
