Abstract

This lead to current architectural design trend: the principles of Universal Design. In particular, an adaptive architecture is transformable building design that response to various demand and convenience. This research aim to develop a prototype of automatic adaptive space system using object tracking algorithm for multiple users simultaneously in single residence. By using video image processing, our system can detect 2 types of the user: wheelchair and general user. This research can be divided into 3 parts. First, studied on the problems of wheelchair users by using questionnaires and interviews. The analyzed result can be used to define the area requirement. We have found that the main problem of sharing space between users is non-flexible wall and furniture. Second part is the prototype development of automatic adaptive space system with object tracking technology. The final part is system efficiency evaluation. The system can facilitate and safely for everyone in the home.
