Smart home technologies have become, in the last few years, a very active topic of research. However, many scientists working in this field do not possess smart home infrastructure allowing them to conduct satisfactory experiments in a concrete environment with real data. To address this issue, this paper presents a new flexible 3D smart home infrastructure simulator developed in Java specifically to help researchers working in the field of activity recognition. A set of pre-recorded scenarios, made with data extracted from clinical trials, will be included with the simulator in order to give a common foundation for testing activity recognition algorithms. The goal is to release the SIMACT simulator as an open source component that will benefit the whole smart home research community.
