Abstract: In this talk I will present a range of projects we have recently begun under the “Smart Hospital Living Lab” in Melbourne. The work is still ongoing, so I will take this opportunity to received feedback from the audience regarding the direction of our work and our future plans. In this presentation I will describe how we have approached our collaboration with hospitals in Melbourne, and will discuss how we use our expertise in Ubiquitous Computing and user-centered design to solve problems that the hospitals have. The presentation will give a summary of how a living lab approach to research works, and how it can be used to identify problems and solutions by involving multiple stakeholders in the process. The ongoing projects I will present include patient & staff tracking, the smart pillbox, the IV detection project, and handwashing detection.
