The DOMUS Living Lab is an automated home in the form of a 3-room apartment recreated in the Grenoble IT laboratory (LIG). All the commands (opening/closing the blinds, switching the electric kettle, the television or the lights on or off) can be activated via multiple interfaces and from a central control station. More particularly, these devices are activated through an Awabot robot called Emox, shown here at the bedside. The behaviour of both residents and operators was recorded to study how the presence of a robot affected the humans involved in the project.
