Abstract

This article describes IOT enhancements in a smart house so as to provide a calm computing environment. Experimental studies using a portable wireless EEG-casket indicate that the habitants’ calmness can increase with simple, yet effective reinforcements in the existing in-house infrastructure. A ground robot assists by providing services and spherical video feedback to the humans while remaining out of visual contact to them. Wireless sensors measuring the sound level, luminosity, humidity, CO, temperature, and pressure assist in the calmness. At the same time, the persons’ heart rate and their interaction with their smartphones is monitored resulting in appropriate actions. A Google-hub enabled device provides actions to the robot, a loudspeaker, an air-cooling device and powers up smart power outlets.
