The smart open house provides optimal adaptability using sensing, operating, information, and communications technology,
in conjunction with open building in-filled components, to perceive user needs and environmental changes, and
thereby meet the needs for sustainability and a healthy living environment. These needs are particularly pressing in view
of the aged society that will emerge in Taiwan after 2020. Based on the smart open house hypothesis, this study proposes
using agent-based smart skins in a smart open house, where an agent-based smart skin is embedded in a lifetime
home (or ageless home) with an open system construction. The agent-based smart skin operating mechanism
employs fuzzy logic inference and neuro-fuzzy learning to process environmental information from sensing devices and
drive skin elements, achieving adaptive action, meeting residents' lifetime use needs, and offering a user experienceoriented
smart care capability.
