On June 1, 2017, Nicolas Tsiftes from RISE SICS presented the E-care@home project in a seminar at the University of Bristol. The seminar was given to researchers in the SPHERE project, which is a large e-healthcare project in the United Kingdom. The presentation consisted of an overview of the interdisciplinary work carried out within the distributed research environment of E-care@home, as well as a more detailed presentation of the research on the Internet of Things and sensors carried out within WP1.
In addition to the seminar, Nicolas was given a tour of the SPHERE House (http://www.irc-sphere.ac.uk/sphere-house), an experimental apartment consisting of a plethora of sensors to monitor people’s health and quality of life. The SPHERE House is similar to the Ängen facility
(http://angeninnovation.se/) in Örebro, Sweden, which is used as an common platform for experiments within E-care@home project.
