IS-2004-52: Learning to Control a Smart Home Environment
A future home run by computer-based agents is envisioned. These agents collect and process data from sensors throughout the house looking for meaningful patterns. The researchers simulated sensor data generation to test the algorithms. Trials of MavHome (Managing an Adaptable Versatile Home) are being run in a laboratory (MavLab) and in an apartment (MavPad) at the University of Texas at Arlington.
