The Smartline Story

Smartline is a research and innovation project aimed at supporting SMEs in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly develop innovative products, processes and services. The project will do this by increasing their understanding of how technology can be used to improve people’s health and wellbeing.

The project, which has received funding from the SW AHSN, is recruiting 350 households in Camborne, Pool, Redruth and Illogan and sensors will be installed in their homes to provide information about how the house works for the residents. The team will be looking at 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.

Researchers and businesses will use this information to help design better systems for managing homes in the future, and for developing better products and services to help us all live happier and healthier lives.

To find out more about Smartline, and the support they can offer local businesses, visit their website or contact them via smartline@exeter.ac.uk
