Our newest Housing LIN guest blog, 'What smart homes can learn from the independent living movement’, is by Phil Robinson of Possum and Clive Gilbert of Policy Connect.

This blog argues that policy makers, manufacturers, and designers need to work with the people who will use the technology in order to ensure that it is inclusive and meets their needs.
