Scientific Activities

Datasets


In smart home research, it is often very difficult to obtain good data. In addition, there is currently no consensus among researchers on the type of technology to use and on the method to use for data collection. This result in a lots of papers publishing methods and algorithms that are very difficult to reproduce. In order to contribute to smart home research and to enable researchers to reproduce our results, we will some of the datasets we collected for experiments are available here. The instruction on how to use the datasets are included along with the data. All use of our datasets must of course be acknowledged by citing the proper paper.

Open Source Projects
