CASE STUDY 4 – Smartification of Furniture

Case study intent: To demonstrate the smartification furniture process, as a way to improve user quality of life.

 

The environment around us is becoming smart and connected, providing services and solutions to assist us or making life easier.

Internet of Things (IoT) is materialized in sensing and communication devices that connect with other devices generating data and information that become useful while analyzed and deployed to services and applications.

Smartification makes use of the panoply of available devices to provide awareness of objects and the overall environmental conditions around us. If associated with intelligent systems, as those resulting from AI algorithms, using big data collections to feed machine learning analysis, it becomes supportive and proactive for a person’s benefit.

Using an OMDF platform, it becomes possible to use smartification for the furniture industry, providing solutions for manufacturing in a DIT environment by adopting strategies, designed experimentally in a Fab Lab, tested and validated for that purpose. Those smartified furniture pieces are provided with sensors to enable awareness of the environment.
