Interaction and Sensors

‘Interaction and Sensors’ is a multidisciplinary research project funded by the BMBF within the scope of three ‘Forschungscampus’ projects developing new technologies for smart homes. Several partners from research, education and development like Deutsche Telekom AG, TU Berlin and ART+COM work on technologies that innovate interactions and sensors.

The Design Research Lab concentrates on the communication in between roommates and family members and develops prototypes to support the everyday interaction at home. Based on workshops, interviews, discussion rounds and cultural probes, the DRLab explores in cooperation with other partners how roommates communicate and organize themselves at home.
