Innovation at your fingertips: the Bremen Ambient Assisted Living Lab is one of six DFKI Living Labs. Here, new intelligent technologies are being tested in a realistic environment, and development work is made transparent to the public. The BAALL is a fully furnished apartment, which adapts to the needs of the inhabitants. This includes e.g. smart appliances like a sink or toilet adjusting automatically to a person’s height, an intelligent wardrobe suggesting outfits, an intelligent wheelchair and an intelligent walker, which are fitted with technical equipment to compensate declining physical and cognitive capabilities of elderly persons.
For research and development the BAALL, opened in 2009, is the ideal environment: here, researchers are developing mobile assistance and support systems for seniors in spe. They are testing them with regards to their everyday usability, and are continuously improving them.
In this guided tour we also like to provide insight into how we use the BAALL to provide hands-on learning experiences especially for school girls.
The project SMILE aims to sustainably increase the proportion of women taking up studies in computer sciences.
