    Abstract

    The purpose of this unit is to introduce learners to the concept of SMART homes, from the perspectives of three distinct industry sectors - Construction; Information and Communication Technology; and Health and Care. Learners will be introduced to emergent themes and innovations relating to SMART homes, from three sectoral perspectives, to develop an understanding of how cross-sectoral interactions can enhance the positive economic and societal benefits associated with SMART homes. In the final outcome of this unit, learners will undertake a cross-disciplinary project in response to a SMART home related case study. The Meta skills units will support the skills required in the final section.
