|The Laboratory for Research on Intelligent, Interactive Environments can be found in room C420 at the top floor in the MIT Building. The lab contains a smart home environment and a number of prototype applications for different purposes related to autonomous and interactive computer-based support in every day work and leisure activities. Here you can also find our master thesis students, summer workers (if summer) and NAO robots Neja and Njao.|
