Easyhome is a project funded by the Friuli Venezia Giulia Region and the European Union through the POR FESR 2007-2013 channel, 1.1 b). The partners involved are the Plast-Optic Research Center, Electrolux S.p.A., Elettra Sincrotrone Center, University of Udine, Pordenone Technology Center, Sipro S.r.l., Xivet S.r.l. and MarMax S.r.l ..
The aim of the project is to demonstrate a new home automation system paradigm that can respond effectively to the real needs of older users and, at the same time, to contribute as much as possible to their well-being and relaxation.
In particular, Easyhome aims to integrate a number of specialized contributions in the field of electronics, ergonomics and cognitive ergonomics and ICT technologies to develop services directed at an aging active population. This class of users, not subject to particular pathologies, can benefit from the implementation of home automated services when the use of technology becomes easy and relaxed.
To achieve the feeling of simple and familiar use of the domotic apparatus, light is used not only as a source of illumination but also as a function of the system or as a way to implement advanced features such as attraction / attention, sleep / alarm clocks or bactericidal drugs in stock in your home appliances.
