Innovation at your fingertips: The Bremen Ambient Assisted Living Lab (BAALL) is a fully furnished apartment, which adapts to the needs of the inhabitants. For research and development, the BAALL, opened in 2009, is the ideal environment: New intelligent technologies with focus on mobile assistance and support systems are being developed in a realistic environment, tested, and continuously improved with regards to their everyday usability. This includes smart appliances like a sink or toilet adjusting automatically to a person’s height, an intelligent wardrobe suggesting outfits, an intelligent wheelchair and walker, which are fitted with technical equipment to compensate declining physical and cognitive capabilities of elderly people.
Furthermore, we would like to show how we use BAALL as a learning and experimental environment to actively involve different stakeholders in development projects, to offer students attractive learning opportunities related to topics of Information Technology and Smart Environments and to make research transparent to an interested public.
