DOMUS Laboratory: DOmotics and Mobile Computing at the Université de Sherbrooke


  • Description
    • DOMUS Laboratory staff are studying cognitive assistance, medical monitoring and tele-vigilance among those with cognitive disorders. DOMUS is composed of an interdisciplinary team in areas such as computing, engineering, occupational therapy, neuropsychology, psychology, clinical psychology, and design. The research projects are centred on the targeted needs and challenges of providing independent living to those with cognitive disorders. Designing prototypes, experimenting, evaluating, and validating tools and hypotheses in real-life settings over long periods of time are essential to developing relevant solutions which can be transferred and applied in daily usage. To this end, the laboratory has a smart apartment on the campus of the Université de Sherbrooke and a living laboratory in a home with 10 persons with cognitive impairments at its disposal. Experiments and clinical studies are also led in homes and residences. The models and applications developed by this interdisciplinary team encourage the independent living of those with cognitive disorders caused by cranial trauma, Alzheimer's disease, intellectual disabilities, and schizophrenia.
