Innovation in national and European projects
We are an active partner in regional, national and international research and pilot projects.
Smart Homes is expert in the implementation of user centred design approaches. We focus on gathering user requirements by innovative methods which allows an equal and creative interaction between users and experts.
Within research projects, Smart Homes is partner in pilot design, field trials, and user evaluations. Starting from a user-centred approach, Smart Homes defines and designs the system and is involved in the evaluation of developed technology and services in real life situations. Smart Homes recognizes that the process of moving innovations out of the laboratory into real homes is delicate and must never be underestimated. We see it as our duty to study people in situ, in real homes, to gather a rich and in-depth understanding about people’s wishes and needs.
