Student Involvement

The Aware Home provides a number of resources and opportunities for students in the Georgia Tech community. The house was developed as a space for researchers to experiment with home technology in its proper context. It is outfitted with a myriad of technologies to help facilitate research in the fields of smart home applications, aging in place, health and well-being, digital media and entertainment, education, sustainability, and home management.

Interested students can contact us for more information and help in getting started.
