Optimization of environmental control to fit living space requirements
MetadataShow full item record
This study examines the application of Environmental Control Systems (ECSs) for people with disabilities who live in the dormitory. ECSs allow people with disabilities to control appliances in their homes and parameters in their environment. The purpose of this study is to analyze effectiveness and efficiency of current ECSs when they are used in this setting, and formulate ways of reducing the cost and complexity of these systems. ECSs are compared against the needs of a real client with disabilities who lives in a dormitory room on the Texas A&M University main campus. General conclusions about the strengths and weaknesses of the systems, when applied to the small living space, are formulated. Alternative ECS designs are conceived and discussed. Finally, an example ECS component subsystem design is produced in detail.
