  • Adaptive automation and run time equalization with real time monitoring for split air conditioners in telecom applications for energy efficiency

    Telecom and data centre application requires air conditioned environments. For small installation split air conditioners with high sensible heat factors are selected with n number of units along with standby units according to the heat load. The selection of number of units for the particular time is determined by human. If the cooling is insufficient then more number of units were switched on manually There is no monitoring system for the air conditioner to determine their efficiency. This results the following problem (1) wastage of energy due to random number selection of air conditioner (2) non uniform hour operation of the air conditioner. This paper aims to address the above issues by (1)selecting the number of units optimally according to the room temperature by embedded controller designed for this purpose and also (2)the run hour of all air conditioner are made equally made by introducing run hour equalizing algorithm. (3)The status of the air conditioner and run time are monitored through internet (4) The in efficient working units are monitored through internet for taking action to repair. We used Arduino mega with Ethernet shield for the above purpose. Which is a low cost open standard board. We used Bitnami PHPmyadmin server which is an open standard software for hosting the status mentioned above.

  • Connected Smart Buildings, a New Way to Interact with Buildings

    Summary form only given. Devices, people, information and software applications rarely live in isolation in modern building management. For example, networked sensors that monitor the performance of a chiller are common and collected data are delivered to building automation systems to optimize energy use. Detected possible failures are also handed to facility management staffs for repairs. Physical and cyber security services have to be incorporated to prevent improper access of not only HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning) equipment but also control devices. Harmonizing these connected sensors, control devices, equipment and people is a key to provide more comfortable, safe and sustainable buildings. Nowadays, devices with embedded intelligences and communication capabilities can interact with people directly. Traditionally, few selected people (e.g., facility managers in building industry) have access and program the device with fixed operating schedule while a device has a very limited connectivity to an operating environment and context. Modern connected devices will learn and interact with users and other connected things. This would be a fundamental shift in ways in communication from unidirectional to bi-directional. A manufacturer will learn how their products and features are being accessed and utilized. An end user or a device on behalf of a user can interact and communicate with a service provider or a manufacturer without go though a distributer, almost real time basis. This will requires different business strategies and product development behaviors to serve connected customers' demands. Connected things produce enormous amount of data that result many questions and technical challenges in data management, analysis and associated services. In this talk, we will brief some of challenges that we have encountered In developing connected building solutions and services. More specifically, (1) semantic interoperability requirements among smart sensors, actuators, lighting, security and control and business applications, (2) engineering challenges in managing massively large time sensitive multi-media data in a cloud at global scale, and (3) security and privacy concerns are presented.

  • Poster Abstract: Context Intelligence in Pervasive Environments

    Intelligent personalization systems are becoming increasingly reliant on contextually-relevant devices and services, such as those available within modern IoT deployments. An IoT context may emerge-or become pervasive-when the intelligent system generates knowledge from dialogue-based interactions with the end-user; the context is strengthened even further by incorporating state representations about the environment (e.g., generated from wireless sensor data) into the knowledge graph. This is crucial for pervasive applications like digital assistance in IoT, where context-aware systems need to adapt quickly: activities like leaving work home-bound, driving to the grocery store, arriving at home, and walking the dog, for example, can occur in a relatively short period of time-during which an intelligent assistant must be able to support user requests in a consistent and coherent manner. Given that computational ontologies can serve as semantic models for heterogeneous data, they are becoming increasingly viable for reasoning across different IoT contexts. This involves: (a) federation and dynamic pruning of multiple modular ontologies, ideally, to comprehensively capture only the knowledge that will facilitate execution of a multi-context task; (b) fast consistency- checking and ontology-based inferences, aided by rules-based execution environments that can evaluate/transform ambient wireless sensor network (WSN) data, in real-time; and (c) run-time execution of ontology-based control procedures, through rule-engine actuation commands sent across the WSN. Only by realizing these functionalities may intelligent systems be capable of reasoning over device properties, system states, and user activities, while appropriately delegating commands to other intelligent agents or other relevant IoT services. In this poster, we illustrate how a multi-context knowledge base can be structured on the basis of modular ontologies and integrated with a distributed rules-based inference engine in multiple smart- building environments, in order to enable scalable contextual reasoning for intelligent assistance. Preliminary results are also discussed. This work is conducted through the partnership of Bosch Research Pittsburgh and Carnegie Mellon University (CMU), and is in partial satisfaction of CMU's Bosch Energy Research Network (BERN) grant, awarded for developments in intelligent building solutions. The approach we describe is also partially based on the Ubiquitous Personal Assistant (UPA) project, Bosch Research's largest research initiative worldwide.

  • Design of an emergency building evacuation system

    As a result of recent developments in electronic equipment and sensor technology, usage and implementation models of building automation systems (BAS) are increasing. BAS provides smart, automatic and centralized management of various different services. However, BAS implementation contains several challenges. Due to realization of different services with hardware that can be very different from each other; it is very hard to propose an automatic management model that is suitable to each service. In this study, as a specific service included in BAS services, an emergency evacuation model is proposed. Moreover, a service model and corresponding definitions that can be appropriate to various hardware and software tools, are proposed. In other words, a practical and efficient model is proposed for emergency evacuation scenario. A management approach is also demonstrated. Beside these, in order to show practicality of service definitions, implementation by using hardware and software tools with low costs are realized.

  • Indoor environmental parameters monitoring for building automation systems

    This article presents the implementation of a novel architecture of a specialized measurement and control system that is intended to be integrated in a complex automation system for buildings. The proposed design is realized around Atmega 328 microcontroller embedded on Arduino Uno development board. For indoor environmental monitoring are used different sensors associated with various physical quantities. In our approach were used three types of sensors: a combined temperature-humidity sensor (AM2302/DHT 22) characterized by a high precision and having digital output and digital pressure sensor (BMP 180) together with a light depended resistor (LDR) for light intensity measurements. The system is extendable and in the proposed configuration is capable to control multiple loads, including pulse width modulation (PWM) based proportional control. The correct operation and the reliability of the monitoring and control system were evaluated through simulations and practical test with implemented module. Compared with other implementations, the proposed design has the advantage of a flexible and versatile implementation, based on reconfigurable concepts specific to the high performance programmable microcontrollers, combined with a simple user interface for equipment control.
