Smart Systems for Occupancy and Building Energy Control
Dr. Leonardo Bobadilla & Dr. Ali Mostafavi
The goal of our project is to teach people how to save energy because simple changes in occupants behaviors can quickly lead to significant energy savings. This application provides information on occupancy behavior and energy consumption in buildings. This will include displaying the occupancy in different zones, artificial and natural lighting information, and temperature inside and outside the building, plug load information, predictions for air conditioning, predictions for consumption of some appliances and prediction for the monthly costs associated with energy expenditure. This application will display the information in real time so that it can help to teach people to use the electricity in an efficient way.
