Exchange information between households appliances


In this project the Internet of Things, Social Networks and Intelligent Systems converge. It is about creating a protocol by which household appliances can exchange information on use and results and learn from it to achieve more efficient operations. 

A simple social network has been proposed in which the user, without advanced knowledge, introduces their case and presents their finals results. Thus, a large database is created with each case, the conditions that have been adopted and the level of final user satisfaction.

CARTIF works on the application of Computational Intelligence and also on the creation of a space to demonstrate the results. The ultimate goal is to demonstrate the usefulness of this type of techniques in a particular case such as the handling of household appliances.


Research project that uses the homework scenario to experiece an IoT network.

  • Infrastructure that allows devices in the home to speak to a middleware where the user can create recipes.
  • Knowledge management environment where the user interacts with a social network to issue what we call recipes, which are adjusted through cognitive processes: user feedback and shared knowledge on the network.


Experience the future of the human-centered Internet: users are the owners of the rules that operate things. As members of a social network, they share information to improve together.

  1. At local level, integrate devices in the network.
  2. Globally, integrate thousands of devices in a single network.
  3. From an abstract perspective, 1 and 2 constitute the infrastructure where IoT and IoP merge (user community).

Expected Results

  • Development of the infrastructure for the user to communicate with their household appliances. The user contributes his experience and his degree of satisfaction with the executed recipe to a social network that learns from his opinions and proposes new recipes according to his tastes.
  • CARTIF hosts a demosntrator with electrical appliances connected to the network. Carrying out experiments to nurture the social network, and validate the results of the algorithms provided by the recipes.

The objective is to develop a new generation of Socio-Bio-Cooperative robotic devices based on haptic technology combined with the novel Socio-Bio-Cooperative control approach to robotic systems, which proposes to use the biophysical signals of the users to adapt their reaction to the user’s state.
