Lifestyle & Design Cluster - IOT in lifestyle products
A LDC project aiming to demonstrate how and why companies in the fashion and lifestyle industry can integrate IoT into their products, so that they are at the forefront of customer expectations and demands for transparency and traceability.
In this project MiCollect partnered with Wehlers, a Denmark-based sustainable furniture brand and FORCE Technology, Denmark’s largest research and technology organization (RTO).
Our Focus of Study
The likelihood of furniture requiring repair, is influenced by usage, the quality of care and maintenance by users. To address the challenge of predicting the need of repair, our study centered on testing how to monitor usage of lifestyle products.
During our project we utilized IoT technology to capture a set of data from a selection of furniture driving insight on usage of the furniture. These insights of relevance to make customer recommendations and notifications on timely and proper care and maintenance - all for the purpose of increasing longevity of furniture.
