"To boldy connect what no one has connected before"
The Home Area Networking (HAN) Group was set up in September 1995 at
the University of Cambridge Computer Laboratory. We have, since,
researched, designed, and built a number of Home Networking and Home
Automation Systems. Our research interests include everything from the
physical layer to HCI. Our systems are aimed at a multimedia-capable,
auto-configuring, self-organizing, highly reliable, scalable,
extensible, secure and easy to use HAN.
|AutoHAN - An application environment for simple home integration.
|HAN Events - An approach to home device control using events.
|Hanlan - A multiaccess ATM and Ethernet LAN using home phone wiring.
|Media Cubes - Intuitive lego-style tangible interfaces for AutoHan programming.
|Warren - A lost cost ATM approach to HAN allowing for proxy control of dumb ATM devices.
Other Working Areas
|Security and Authentication Environments.
|HAN HiFi Consortium.
|Design of HDLs and Protocols for direct implementation in hardware.
|Implementation of Proxy Signalling Entities for regular ATM service over dumb switches.
