A SPACE MAKE YOU LIVELY: A BRAIN-COMPUTER INTERFACE APPROACH TO SMART SPACE
CAADRIA 2006 [Proceedings of the 11th International Conference on Computer Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia] Kumamoto (Japan) March 30th - April 2nd 2006, 303-312
This research is paying attention to the new field of “Smart Homes”. The goal of Smart Homes is to provide and more economical dwellings for humans. Le Cobusier envisioned a house as a machine for living. To enable a space to take the initiative in perceiving the demands of the user and to respond with appropriate feedback under diverse conditions, there is a new field development of Brain-Computer Interface (BCI). This research proposes, therefore, a smart space that enables the user to work in an energized way via the BCI system. When the space “perceives” that someone is getting sleepy by monitoring the user’s brainwaves, it will take appropriate action such as providing specific background music or adjusting the lighting and temperature in the room as subliminal reminders to the user to stay alert and productive.
