Ambient Intelligence (AmI) is about sensitive, adaptive electronic environments that respond to the actions of persons and objects and cater for their needs. This approach includes the entire environment – including each single physical object – and associates it with human interaction. The option of extended and more intuitive interaction is expected to result in enhanced efficiency, increased creativity and greater personal well-being.
