To discourse on automation level that
can be achieved.
Ambient Intelligence(AmI) is the vision of a
technology that will become invisibly embedded in
our natural surroundings, present whenever we need
it, enabled by simple and effortless interactions.
Radio Frequency Identification
Radio-frequency identification (RFID) is the use of a wireless
non-contact system that uses radio-frequency electronic
fields to transfer data from a tag attached to an object

Microchip implant (human)
A human microchip implant is an integrated circuit
device or RFID transponder encased in silicate glass
and implanted in the body of a human being.

A sensor is also called detector which is a
convector that measures a physical quantity and
converts it into a signal which can be read by an

Nanotechnology entails the application of fields of
science as in surface science, micro fabrication etc.

Biometrics refers to the identification of humans by

Affecting computing is the machine should interpret
the emotional state of humans and adapt its
behavior to them, giving an appropriate response for

Ubiquitous Computing means the integration of
microprocessors into everyday objects like
furniture, clothes or toys.
Using ubiquitous computing, people will not be
aware of the presence of computers, they will be in
Ubiquitous Communication should enable these
objects to communicate with each other and with
Intelligent User Interface
Intelligent User Interface enables the inhabitants of
the AmI to control and interact with the environment
in a natural (voice, gestures) and personalized way
•Need high finance to install and maintaining
•Possibility of making people lazy.
• The Ambient Intelligence is time saving, provides security,
safety and entertainment, reduce the stress leading to an
overall higher quality of life.
• However, the ability to prepare or complete more and
more everyday tasks such as shopping or banking at home,
potentially leads to reduced interaction.
