Project Work

In some modules of the study courses at the University of Lübeck the students develop prototypical projects. Here are some completed projects listed.


The personalized patient room

Patient identifies with the system
Personal design is chosen
Room adapts to user wishes
From jungle to desert ... at home

Project Internship Ambient Computing - "Ambient Hospital", WS 2017/18, Prof. Dr.-Ing. Andreas Schrader (ITM)

Team: Patrick Dresel, Julia Holldorf, Tristan Kersten, Henning Lück, Simon Thiessen

Supervision: Daniel Burmeister (ITM)

The project implements an interactive patient room of the future. The aim is to create a personally adaptable feel-good atmosphere. Patients can control the brightness and color of lamps, select the ambient soundtrack and project preferred pictures and videos onto the walls via a beamer. For the control, an app was developed, the identification of patients via RFID. Nurses are recognized by the system and, in certain situations, can create a neutral, calm and bright environment by presence alone.


Wake Up Agent (WAKE)

Delirium after surgery
Projection is adjusted to the viewing direction
Avatar provides information
Projection in sight

Project Internship Ambient Computing - "Ambient Hospital", WS 2017/18, Supervision: Prof. Dr.-Ing. Andreas Schrader (ITM)

Team: Tim Ole Caliebe, Markus Dresel, Lukas Heeger, Christian Pick

Supervision: Börge Kordts (ITM)

WAKE (wake-up agent for a child environment) is a wake-up agent for patients after surgery. Typically, this phase is associated with delirium and concomitant postoperative confusion, which can produce both acute stress and long-term health effects. WAKE is a graphically simulated agent that automatically provides information about the location, time, and condition of the patient. A camera recognizes the viewing direction of the patient and projects the animation according to the field of view.


Nurse Smart Assist

Technician sets up system
Patient empties carafe
Staff is informed
Short ways without demands

Project Internship Ambient Computing - "Ambient Hospital", WS 2017/18, Prof. Dr.-Ing. Andreas Schrader (ITM)

Team: Guillaume Assaud, Elisabeth Bartsch, Torben Lohmann, Manuela Paula Ritter, Toni Schumacher

Supervision: Bennet Gerlach (ITM)

The nursing staff in clinical wards is often challenged with many routine activities that would be more meaningfully invested in personal attention. The project implements intelligent logistics support for the beverage supply. With the help of weight sensors in the patient table and RFID in decanters, the level and type of drink are automatically detected. The order for subsequent delivery calculated from this is distributed to all relevant persons on the ward (lamps, messages on mobile devices). So many ways can be saved.


Interactive medicine dispenser

Nursing specialist equips system
Data is entered
Patient retrieves information
Alarm function reminiscent of ingestion

Project Internship Ambient Computing - "Ambient Hospital", WS 2017/18, Prof. Dr.-Ing. Andreas Schrader (ITM)

Team: Catriona Eschke, Jens Krauth, Rafał Łokuciejewski, Julian Petzold

Supervision: Daniel Burmeister (ITM)

The project implements an interactive medicine system based on a mobile device application with a capacitive touch screen. Special cups are identified by the device. By simply placing the cups on the touch screen information about the medication can be retrieved. An alarm reminds of taking.
