We propose an architecture of intelligent space based on distributed intelligent sensors. Intelligent space is an environmental system able to support humans in informative and physical ways. Since an intelligent space should adapt to the various sizes and shapes of an environment, an architecture based on distributed intelligent sensors is designed. The proposed architecture satisfies not only scalability but also reconfigurability, modularity, easy maintenance, and affinity problems in building an intelligent space. Intelligent sensors are distributed among a space and they provide functions based on position information. According to the particular situation, cooperation among intelligent sensors or cooperation among function modules in the intelligent sensors are performed. Selected demonstrations are described in the paper.
