The Technikum Wien University of Applied Sciences has been working on smart homes and supporting technologies for ten years, which enable both older people and people with special needs a high degree of autonomy in everyday life. Since May 2019, the new Smart Living Lab at FH Technikum Wien has been offering a complete apartment including smart home technologies for lighting, heating and air conditioning on more than 250 square meters of usable space. With an eye tracker or a tablet, for example, the lights can be switched on and off or the door opened. Service robots and e-health technologies have also been integrated. In R&D projects, the department's staff can perform user tests in a typical home. In addition, new open standards and technologies for evaluation can be integrated into the home environment.
