|WSU team places and activates smart home sensors.|
Smart home research uses programmed sensors in the home to monitor, predict and ultimately improve quality of life, especially in care of the elderly.
WSU researchers have already developed the non-intrusive “smart home in a box’’ that is able to monitor and learn residents’ normal daily activities in their apartments or houses. About the size of a printer, the system can monitor residents’ locations and activities, learn their routines, note when there is a change and prompt them if they forget to do something.
