Advanced Engineering Forum Vol. 19
The E|Home-Symposium bundles research in the field of energy-efficient and self-determined living through intelligent automation technology. Although energy efficiency plays the major role due to the goal of the European Union and the Federal Government of Germany to transform the energy system to one that heavily uses renewable energies, challenges stemming from demographic change and user acceptance are also addressed.The papers have their origin in various research disciplines such as computer science, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, medical science or social science and usually provide insight into an interdisciplinary research methodology spanning various disciplines. Following this approach it becomes possible to develop technical sound as well as highly usable solutions that have a significant and immediate effect in the application area. The scope of the conference considers smart homes that contribute to the generation, storage and distribution of energy as well as concepts for residential environments that provide comfort, security, infotainment and medical support.
