Ambient intelligence

Ambient intelligence aims at increasing the quality of life by introducing the technology into our everyday environment in a way that places minimal burden on the user. Due to the rapid aging of the population, care for the elderly and telemedicine are among the area’s main goals, but applications for the general population, such as smart buildings, are also important. A prerequisite for ambient intelligence is understanding the user’s situation and needs, which we address by analyzing human behavior using various sensors. We work with many sensor types, but have particularly extensive experience with:

  • Smartphone sensors
  • Dedicated inertial sensors
  • Real-time location systems
  • Infrared motion capture

We work on a wide range of ambient intelligence tasks, for example:

  • Activity recognition
  • Human energy expenditure estimation
  • Fall detection
  • Detection of unusual behavior caused by health or security issues
  • Detection of unusual environmental events
  • Recognition of diseases
  • Smart home applications focused on energy efficienty, security and ease of use
