You develop new technology concepts for the office of tomorrow in a realistic environment: The team led by Professor Dr.-Ing. Sabine Hoffmann from the TU Kaiserslautern and Professor Dr. Andreas Dengel from the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI) is working closely together in the newly opened "Living Lab smart office space". Here they want to test their ideas directly in practice.

Too hot, too cold, too loud, too dry, too little privacy - these are just a few points from a user survey conducted by the International Facility Management Organization in 2009 on office space. They clearly show that in many cases, comfort in offices increases too wish leaves. In particular, there are frequent complaints about the thermal conditions that lead to job dissatisfaction. Even poor lighting conditions and high noise levels are not conducive to concentration.

Professor Sabine Hoffmann and her team in the new “Living Lab smart office space” will work with DFKI research colleagues on how to improve the comfort of everyone in the office. "In the office of the future there will be personalized workplaces that are tailored to the needs of the individual and take better account of individual differences," says Hoffmann, who holds the chair for building systems and building technology at the TU Kaiserslautern. “Targeted automation technology can regulate temperature, lighting and ventilation at every workstation, for example. The aim is to keep people in control of their surroundings.”In addition to comfort, Hoffmann will also focus on energy efficiency. "Above all office buildings have a very high energy consumption," continues Hoffmann."With new intelligent technologies, a large amount of heat, electricity and water can be saved."

Intelligent assistance systems should promote creativity

The colleagues of the DFKI around Professor Dr. Andreas Dengel, head of the Knowledge Management research area, will work here in future on new hardware and software that will simplify everyday office life. He adds: “With intelligent assistance systems, the office of tomorrow can also be designed comfortably when using knowledge, thus promoting creativity and productivity. Furthermore, the use of modern information technologies, such as sensory activity detection, offers enormous potential for flexible work environments."

Professor Dr. Arndt Poetzsch-Heffter, Vice President of the TU Kaiserslautern, is pleased with the new cooperation: “The TU Kaiserslautern and the DFKI can look back on many years of successful cooperation, which has made a significant contribution to making our location visible nationally and internationally. Many technical innovations and company foundations have resulted from this. With the new Living Lab smart office space, we are now opening another chapter. Here, too, researchers will think about and develop tomorrow's technology.”

Professor Dr. Wolfgang Wahlster, CEO of DFKI: “Our DFKI Living Labs show innovation that you can touch in concrete practical application situations. We already operate two of our six previous living labs on the topic of "Smart Factory" and "Smart City" at the Kaiserslautern location with great success for customer training - but also for citizen dialogue. With the third Living Lab launched today, Kaiserslautern continues to profile itself as a hotspot for innovation.”(Ud)
