Internet Of Things Research Group

The IOT-Lab research group has three physical laboratories at the University of Reutlingen, each one focused on a specialized topic:


Demographic change is moving into the home. Daily life has many facets: orientation in space, eating, leisure, sleeping and also medical care are part of it. In the laboratory, realistic scenes are supported with appropriate technology. The goal is to lead a self-determined life at home.

The Ambient Assisted Living Lab (AAL-Lab) is a development and experimental laboratory. The research done in this lab helps remove barriers to the use of environmental support technologies by people with high assistance needs, including user, technology, network and market barriers for AAL solutions.

The AAL-Lab is built up as a small apartment including a smart kitchen, sleeping, eating and living areas, a bathroom, an observation room and an infrastructure room.

IoT-Lab + SmaRTextiles@IoT

Miniaturized computers can be built into everyday objects so that they can interact with the world. For example, a T-shirt can be used to record an ECG or a fabric flower can be used to measure the intensity of UV radiation. Innovative wearables are developed in the interdisciplinary SmartTextiles workshop of the Internet-of-Things Lab.

The IoT-Lab+SmaRT@IoT-Workshop is conceived as an interdisciplinary space with infrastructure for the development of embedded software, hardware and textile systems.

Future Mobility Lab

The driving simulator analyses driving behavior in realistic 3D scenarios. Driver-centered assistance systems are tested and further developed. Almost every reaction can be detected and evaluated in the simulator. Emotions are distinguished by sensors. Driving safety is improved and consumption is reduced.

The Future-Mobility-Lab consists of two driving simulators: one maker-style for rapid prototyping and a newly designed one with a cockpit using bio-based materials and interactive textile sensors.
