Novel Services through Consumption Monitoring
Future Homes will have one or several gateways to information on the Internet. Norway will introduce Smart Meters by 2019, giving the opportunity to develop new services on top of this infrastructure. Current regulations suggest a reading of power values 1/hour, or in maximum every 15 min. Given a high-frequency reading of power consumption (1/s, 1/2s, 1/min) might give an opportunity to introduce new services. One of such services is the virtual fall sensor, establishing a probability of an abnormal situation with the readings from e.g. power consumption. Such an analysis, comparing the habits/profile of the user with the actual consumption, is suggested to be performed in the home of the user, and thus preserve privacy.
The envisaged assessment of novel services will be based on high-frequency consumption data from actual smart meters, as well as modelling of services

Various paths can be explored and we decide about it together with the student.
