iHomeLab, Lucerne University of Applied Sciences
Lucerne University of Applied Sciences

iHomeLab is a Research Laboratory at Lucerne University of Applied Sciences specialized in various applications of building automation that include embedded systems, wireless communications, automatic hardware configuration, plug and play protocols, indoor localisation and operating concepts, real time computing, and best price solutions. CEESAR provides the interdisciplinary area of computer science and excellence electronics in both projects of applied research and development, as well as for the degree of qualification.

The iHomeLab is the Swiss think tank for Building Intelligence. Recently completed, it is continuously upgraded with new showcases. Key research aspects of the iHomeLab are energy efficiency, comfort, and safety; special attention is given to the issue of ambient assisted living. The core competencies here are applications of automation networks that are user friendly, appropriate for the masses, and efficient in terms of cost-benefit ratio. The iHomeLab Living Lab is also a network platform with national and international impact, where the latest results of joint venture research projects are presented and discussed with experts and wide public. With a program for publications and events we lay a foundation for the consumer acceptance on intelligent living. The iHomeLab makes a contribution to the interdisciplinary guiding theme “Buildings as Systems” of the Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and sensitises experts and the public to the increasingly popular theme of intelligent living.

The team of the iHomeLab has a broad experience in analysis, adoption, integration and deployment of building automation applications based on embedded systems pervasive computing, wireless communication, automatic hardware/software configuration, plug & play technologies, indoor localisation, advanced metering infrastructure and human-machine interfaces.

The broad experience of participation in European and Swiss funded application-oriented research projects in collaboration with industrial partners like Siemens, Landis+Gyr, Schindler, Swisscom has resulted in profound competence and knowledge growth in the area of adopting wireless sensor networks applications. In the same time, being a member of ZigBee Alliance, iHomeLab addresses the cutting edge problems of wireless sensor network and Internet of Things technologies standards in terms of usability, compatibility and interoperability.

As a summary, since 1997 the team of iHomeLab has conducted around 50 applied and cutting edge embedded systems research projects.
