UK universities in SMART2 project

The universities of Ulster, Bath and Sheffield will collaborate with Philips and BT to share expertise in telecare research, body worn sensors and telemonitoring technologies. The SMART2 project follows SMART1, which showed how technology could help home rehabilitation for post-stroke patients. Research for the project will be undertaken within a new ‘smart’ environment constructed in the School of Computing and Mathematics. This environment is made up of a kitchen and living room which will be kitted out with sensors and computer technology to record, interpret and feedback information to the person on routine tasks such as preparation of a meal, and their level of activity.
