    Abstract

    This paper discusses human-centred design of technical infrastructures of smart environments. Smart environments make our everyday environments computerized by embedding information and communication technology in them. The design of smart environments includes to a great extent design of technical infrastructures that facilitate interaction within and with the environment. Therefore, human-centred design should be extended from individual services to focus already on the technical infrastructures that the services will be built on. This paper describes two project cases. The first case concerns the design of a technical infrastructure that facilitates interaction with the smart environment with personal mobile phones. The latter case reflects the design of a technical infrastructure facilitating interoperability of different devices and services for smart environments.
