In a partnership with McLean Care and Deakin University, the ETLab are leading the ethnographic component of the Intelligent Home Solutions for Independent Living project. The project will trial ‘smart’ home technologies with elderly participants who are living at home, to greater understand how these technologies are used; how they could be better designed; and how they affect their everyday living experience.
