I2Home project der DFKI
Graphic Interface Solution for Universal Remote Console
The scope of I2HOME is the intuitive interaction for everyone with home appliances based on industry standards. In this way I2HOME will make devices and appliances at home more accessible to persons with mild cognitive disabilities and older persons, using a new mainstream user interface standard — the Universal Remote Console (URC) standard.
Although focusing on the needs of these specific user groups, the results to be achieved are applicable in the much wider context spread out by topics like Home Automation, Intelligent Environments and Ambience, Intelligent Environments the Automobiles, and a series of others.
Hence, the project can provide the technological basis for quite many applications that can be derived from the very flexible concept on which the project bases - the Universal Remote Console.
The approach of I2HOME can be considered in line with the vision of ambient intelligence and therefore contributes to the opportunity for Europe to reposition itself for the next generation of generic products and services building on a large user industry and service providers. www.I2Home.org
