Smartline is an innovative research project looking at how technology can be used to help us live healthier and happier lives.
The project is a partnership led by the University of Exeter with Coastline Housing Ltd, Cornwall Council and Volunteer Cornwall.
Visit the Smartline website at smartline.org.uk for full details about this project.
Working with Coastline Housing customers in the Camborne, Pool, Illogan and Redruth area of Cornwall, researchers have fitted environmental sensors into 300 homes.
These sensors are collecting information on air quality, humidity, temperature, how much water is used, how air moves around different types of houses and how much energy it takes to heat them.
In addition, participants are taking part in surveys to help us understand their wellbeing needs, aspirations and desires for their community.
Researchers and Cornish enterprises will use the information collected to help design better systems for managing homes in the future, and for inventing new products and services to help us all live happier and healthier lives.
This project is supported by the European Regional Development Fund.
