The lab aims to study, design, implement, and experiment innovative solutions for realization of complex Smart Spaces. Smart Spaces are: “Environments that are enabled for the cooperation of different objects (e.g., devices, sensors, actuators, etc.) that have capabilitry to self-organize themselves with the gola of providing better services to customers and citizens, making living more confortable and efficient”.

The lab extends this definition by: (1) considering persons and things in the space as first class entities, (2) addressing the social interaction among these elements, and (3) defining spaces as smart if its services are easy and natural to use.
