sHOME: Smart Home, Office and Meeting Environment
What are smart environments?Smart environments are sensor equipped areas that gather information about their environment in order to support the people working and living in this area. For example they collect information about
- the number of persons in the room
- the identity of the persons
- mood of the persons
- spoken sentences
