Missouri S&T’s Smart Living signature area seamlessly improves quality of life by transforming home, workplace, transportation and energy infrastructures into “smart” environments.
Smart Living increases our understanding of how people and technology interact by combining sensing with physical action, social behavior analysis, data analytics, engineering, technology, communication and decision-making into a single, integrated concept.
Smart Living means more than creating intelligent cities, homes and infrastructure. It also means designing systems that people can and will use.
Smart Living research areas include:
Missouri S&T’s multidisciplinary Smart Living team combines the university’s strengths in energy research, architectural design, computing, environmental sustainability and transportation infrastructure with emerging strengths in organizational behavior, design, process improvement, social dynamics, policy, and usability to develop a more secure, sustainable and adaptable society. The Smart Living signature area also involves industry partners and University of Missouri System campuses to make the research a statewide effort.
