  Procedure
Living rooms become living dreams
  SIKOWO detects the situation of the persons in a room with the aid of an automatic, multi-camera image processing system. All factors that are decisive for living comfort such as the position of the doors, windows, blinds and lighting are hereby taken into account.

How it works

The objects in the living area are detected using a newly developed algorithm. The algorithm extracts the contours of the objects from the video sequences (with subpixel accuracy).
After monitoring a short period a differentiation is made between immobile, rigid, mobile rigid and flexible objects. Using typical personal features, the parts of the body of the person present are identified from the flexible objects. The localised persons are then monitored for their activity and classified into categories such as walking/standing, seated, lying and exercising.
This knowledge then allows the exact adjustment of the control parameters to the individual requirements of the user and situation.
 





The multiple video camera system in the lab: It registers the outlines of persons and their movements.
 
  Application
Part of a vision
  Together with the partial projects SIPADIM (control of the comfort via natural speech ) and SIPBILD (control instructions via gestures) SIKOWO represents an integral system for an intelligent house instrumentation.
The intelligent house should see and understand you. It should actively and interactively control your living comfort and adapt automatically to your needs. Within this vision, SIKOWO will be taught to see and hear in the "house of tomorrow".
