Abstract

Houses of tomorrow will be equipped with many sensors, actuators and devices, which collectively will expose services. Such services, composed in an automatic way, and invokable through adaptive user interfaces, can support human inhabitants in their daily activities. In this paper we present the approach and some results of the SM4All EU project (http://www.sm4all-project.eu/), which is investigating automatic services composition and advanced user interfaces applied to domotics.
