Tiny House Movement

2022-05-17

The tiny-house movement (also known as the small house movement) is an architectural and social movement that advocates for downsizing living spaces, simplifying, and essentially “living with less.”

Professor Sheng-Kai, Tseng from NYCU Institute of Architecture and Professor Yi-Bing Lin’s research team attempts to harness the concept of renewable energy and AIoT to achieve the “energy autonomy”, creating the AIoT Tiny House. This tiny-house is designed to fit a variety of Taiwan’s climate, from subtropical to the climate in mid-to-high altitudes. This tiny house is located in an open area of NYCU Chiaotung Campus where it is not disturbed by the crowds nor surrounding buildings to ensure that all experimental variables are under control.

The Tiny House is equipped with an IoT platform combined with Quanta Computer’s smart medical kit to provide a comfortable and energy-saving quarantine environment for epidemic prevention which includes a complete energy supply system and instant adjustment of electrical equipment such as fans, lights, heater, and air conditioner based on the environmental monitoring sensors and physiological condition measured by the smart medical kit.
