Klaus-Hendrik Wolf


Aim of this laboratory is to investigate the application of health enabling technologies in residential environments to permit a self-determined and self-sufficient life.


since 2006


This laboratory consists of a full equipped bedroom, a bathroom, a kitchenette and a living quarter. In the whole laboratory stationary sensors (switches, presence and pressure sensors) are communicating with actors and turn on the ceiling light if required or a subtle orientation light if the inhabitant stands up at night. If the inhabitant will leave and lock the laboratory, the cooker and all lights were turned off automatically. Even an alarm can be given manually or automatically in case of sabotage.
