The project, whose full development lasted two years, aimed to design autonomous devices based on different technologies available today that can be incorporated into the furniture of both domestic and public uses, and it can perform various functions in the field of energy management, safety, welfare and communication (Domotic systems).
Usually, the domotic installations are based on a set of sensors distributed throughout the housing, positioned at appropriated fixed locations for the magnitude to be measured, that are the “senses” of the system. Depending on the instructions of the controller and the signals received, various actions are executed that are related to energy management (on / off equipment), security (alarms, presence simulation), welfare (turning on lights, bath, heating) and communication (with owners, with alarm center, etc). Usually, the sensors capture environmental conditions.
This project proposes the development of devices that integrate sensors, controllers and actuators, which can run on systems with decentralized architecture, which can be configured modularly to be integrated in turn in different kinds of furniture.
To be integrated into the furniture will have a closer interaction with users, so they can detect very specific behaviours, and at the
The innovation degree of this project is high, and so far has not considered the creation of a decentralized domotic network, based on the integration of the devices in own furniture. This solution not only gives a great flexibility to the system, but allows mobility and accessibility options much higher than to current systems, which are based on fixed devices and intimately associated with building elements. Obviously, these considerations are joined to the already commented of the high degree of user interactionsame time can generate focused responses to reorient the welfare conditions, energy, security or communication.
