IRiS - Intelligent Rettung im SmartHome

IRiS Logo

The Symcon GmbH coordinates the "IRiS - Intelligent Rescue for SmartHomes" project. This project investigates how a SmartHome can save lives together with a fire brigade in a case of a fire. Here, supporting measures in the house should be switched automatically and the fire brigade should be given access to the actuators and sensors. As a result, a greatly increased success rate is expected, since the first steps can be taken before the fire brigade arrives and the operation can be carried out more effectively and efficiently.

The research project is carried out by Symcon GmbH together with the University of Paderborn and Vomatec GmbH. The focus of Symcon GmbH is on the automatic reaction of the house and the appropriate provision of sensors and actuators to the fire brigade.

The project started on October 1st 2017 and is scheduled for three years. It is funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research.
