After a couple of weeks of hard work, we finished a project course called “Smart Environments”. Our groups project was called Ambion. One can find more info on: http://ambion.bob-loos.com/?page_id=31 we think our project was a succes. We also presented our product in 10 minutes to other students and some other interested people. This was done by Julia and me. Our stand was built up like a room, so we could walk through an imaginary door to demonstrate how the system turns on when entering the room. Once you have entered it, it will determine one of 7 moods: party, romantic, sleepy, wake-up, casual, casual sunny and casual rainy. It does this by checking with how many people you are in the room, the weather outside, the day and the time. What I did for this project was mainly programming. I programmed an arduino so that it could control 2 lamps by mimicking a remote control. Also as the groups’ “artist” I made some visual impressions of the working of the system. Another technical part I made was the user override. The team is very happy with the accomplished prototype especially concidering the amout of time we had for it,  and so were the instructors. They gave us a 9 for this course.
