Living Independent Longer. Are Smart Homes A Great Solution For Dementia Patients?
When researchers talk about smart homes, we usually mean technologies that use artificial intelligence to learn your habits and automatically adjust your home in response to them.
One aspect would be to understand how smart home tech can aid those with dementia. If AI could learn to identify different domestic tasks a person with dementia does daily, this could help develop household robots that could assist them with their daily routine. Smart tech could potentially help them lead an independent life for longer. Smart tech can help them by automatically closing the doors if they are left open, switch off the stove, and even judge how well they are sleeping thanks to sensors.
Different appliances within the home can be controlled remotely. Smart tech can also help those with dementia if they get lost by having smart monitoring systems in place. If the regular data is entered into a system for processing, the software will slowly gain a better understanding of the workings within the home. One drawback could be the potential loss of privacy. One major trouble in designing home care robots is the unstructured surroundings. Factory robots are designed to work in a specific environment, carrying out particular tasks, which is not really a problem. One key way to understanding how tech can be improved is to understand how people interact with it.
