Today was the second preparation day for the ERL in Oldenburg and Lisa got a chance to explore the benchmark arena. It’s a fully furnished and functional smart home apartment. Because it’s used permanently for researching assisted living for elderly people, two very creepy dummies are “living” there.

By exploring the rooms, Lisa creates a map of the apartment, so that she is able to navigate autonomously. Afterwards, we set POIs (points of interest), so that Lisa knows where to go for the different tasks.
