Smart Heating Systems and the FREEDOM project



Speakers: Simone Stumpf, Centre for HCID, City, University of London

Series: HCID Research Seminars

Seminar Abstract:

Smart heating systems that try to optimise user comfort based on complex models of user preferences and other factors are becoming more popular in recent years. In this talk I will describe our work in the FREEDOM project, led by PassivSystems Ltd and funded by Western Power Distribution Wales & West Utilities. I will describe the current state of the art in HCI relating to smart heating systems and present the results of a study to investigate user controls and user interface explanations. I will briefly review further work on this project and potential future work in smart heating system in vernal.
