Abstract Details (PID = P173)
Title:Innovative Remote Smart Home for Immersive Engagement (P173)
Description:An openly accessible, remotely operated smart home will be demonstrated as an engaging tool for physics and environmental students. The presented system can be utilized to cover topics such as: energy flows, cost benefit ratios of various technologies, impacts of new technologies, and proper management of resources. The use of a web accessible, remote laboratory dramatically reduces lab setup time and equipment cost/space requirements for educators. Special attention is given to the web based interface to ensure the system is easy to use and requires only a standard web browser in order to operate. The interface also includes a video link so the user can feel that they are working with real hardware in real time and not using a simulation or virtual facility. An associated website provides a self-scheduling tool to provide access to the system and a resource for related background information on smart grid and residential energy efficiency technologies. In addition, supporting instructional materials that coincide with NGSS standards are available via download.
