Report from the future

Behind the scenes: Dean of Studies Prof. Dr. Cochlovius provides insights into the Internal link opens in the same window:Smart Home Lab of the Faculty of Computer Science

"Can I offer you a water? My data signals that you haven't drunk enough today." A slightly tinny voice echoes through the lab, which is furnished like a modern apartment. "Your risk of dehydration is 65%!" Whirring softly, the humanoid robot "Pepper" turns the corner. In his hand, he holds a water bottle and grins benignly in a student's face. "No, thanks, Pepper, I'd love to do it a little later! I still have to finish the facial recognition for the lab's automatic access control system first," replies Boris, who is currently in the final phase of his master's project with his team.

What reads like a report from the future is already part of everyday life today in the Internal link opens in the same window:Smart Home Lab of the Faculty of Computer Science. In this living lab, students in the Mobile Systems programme carry out ambitious projects in a "close-to-life" situation.
