At home

The DOMUS Laboratory is concerned that the technologies developed there can be easily implemented in the living environment of the people for whom they were created. This is why the Laboratory also uses wireless equipment, which is mobile and can be installed in people's homes in a discreet way and blend into the environment. Thus, sensors (e.g. movement, electricity, humidity, contact) are installed in the home and can track several activities in the house, such as:

  1. Rest periods;
  2. Activities related to preparing and taking meals;
  3. Activities related to personal care and hygiene;
  4. Outings and periods of inactivity.

The transmission of data simply is done using an Internet access.
