  • A Context-Sensitive Rule-Based Architecture for a Smart Building Environment

    In a smart building environment nomadic users can benefit from specialised context-sensitive services. These can increase productivity and offer an improved lifestyle for users. The data management system-context architecture (DMS-CA) has been designed to provide these services. The DMS-CA is novel in providing a completely generic system that is both user-friendly and efficient. The system is generic in that it can be tailored by the system administrator (using XML specifications) for a particular environment of context information inputs and a set of services. In addition, the actual rules that determine which services are triggered by which combination of contextual inputs are determined by the individual user in a user-friendly manner. Thus the generic architecture can be easily deployed for a particular building and an individual user. Generic solutions are sometimes inefficient but this system has been designed to be highly efficient through using an event-based architecture and dealing with time in a special way. The DMS-CA has been deployed for a building incorporating a wireless sensor network, and shown to provide a high quality, efficient context-sensitive data delivery service.

  • Occupancy Detection in Smart Buildings Using Support Vector Regression Method

    This paper proposes a novel approach which applies support vector regression (SVR) method to detect office occupancy in smart buildings. The model is able to detect occupancy with two sets of features corresponding to different degrees of convenience. The feature pool is comprised of solar factor, working time, lights energy, indoor temperature, and outdoor temperature, all of which are obtained through mathematical simulation based on the thermal software EnergyPlus. We show different results by setting different parameter values in the SVR model, and demonstrate model comparison on occupant detection. The proposed model displays advantages in occupancy detection which is capable of making accurate detections at low requirements for sensor accuracy and reducing the equipment cost in smart buildings.

  • Ultra low-energy transceivers for wireless sensor networks

    Summary form only given. An untapped opportunity in the realm of wireless data lies in low data-rate (<10 kbit/sec) low-cost wireless transceivers, assembled into distributed networks of sensor and actuator nodes. This enables applications such as smart buildings and highways, environment monitoring, user interfaces, entertainment, factory automation, and robotics. While the aggregate system processes large amounts of data, individual nodes participate in a small fraction only (typical data rates <1 kbit/sec). These ubiquitous networks require that the individual nodes are tiny, easily integratable into the environment, and have negligible cost. Most importantly, the nodes must be self-contained in terms of energy via a one-time battery charge or a replenishable supply of energy scavenged from the environment. With the proposed size limitations, battery power alone does not suffice to ensure self-containment. Energy scavenging approaches can deliver up to 100 /spl mu/W. Achieving such ultra-low power-dissipation level requires reductions from the system architecture down to the circuit technology. The presentation presents a number of techniques to accomplish this, and outlines avenues for further research.

  • Application of smart energy technologies in building sector — future prospects

    In buildings, various kinds of energies like cooling, heating, hot Water, lighting, electricity and gas are used on daily basis to provide safety and comfort to occupants. The national and global trend is to transform a conventional building to smart building by making use of smart technologies. The main objective of smart energy technology is to reduce the energy cost and environmental impact in building life cycle. All engineers, planners and designers are looking for applications of smart technologies in buildings to achieve the goal of lowest possible energy cost with zero environmental impact on building life cycle. Also the conventional cities are being transformed into smart cites which are financially and ecologically viable through the use of smart energy technologies and systems. Use of Renewable Energy is one of the pillars for attaining smart building and smart cities infrastructure. Technologies like smart metering, smart Lighting, smart grid and Energy Internet, Renewable, Distributed, Net metering, LED, Smart Building Energy Management Systems (SBEMS), Insulations, Day Lighting, Smart HVAC systems are the major technologies being used to achieve a smart Building architecture. Many countries have set up targets to reduce the carbon footprints by 10 to 30% by deploying smart and renewable energy technologies coupled with energy efficiency improvements and conservation actions. Future prospects for smart technologies are very bright and it is future technology revolution toward achieving sustainable energy goals. By deploying the smart energy technologies, conventional buildings can be transformed to Smart energy buildings leading to sustainable and green energy future.

  • Thermal Comfort Modeling for Smart Buildings: A Fine-Grained Deep Learning Approach

    The emerging internet of things (IoT) technology enables smart building management and operation to improve building energy efficiency and occupant thermal comfort. In this paper, we perform data analysis using the IoT generated building data to derive accurate thermal comfort model for smart building control. Deep neural network (Dnn) is used to model the relationship between the controllable building operations and thermal comfort. As thermal comfort is determined by multiple comfort factors, a fine-grained architecture is proposed, where an exclusive model is trained for each factor and accordingly the corresponding thermal comfort can be evaluated. The experimental results show that the proposed fine-grained Dnn outperforms its coarse-grained counterpart by 3.5× and is 1.7×, 2.5×, 2.4× and 1.9× more accurate compared to four popular machine learning algorithms. Besides, Dnn’s performance promotes with deeper network topology and more neurons, and a simple topology with the same number of neurons per network hidden layer is sufficient to achieve high modeling accuracy. Finally, the derived thermal comfort model reveals a linear relationship between comfort and air conditioning setpoint. The linear property helps quickly and accurately search for the optimal controllable setpoint with the desired comfort.

  • Smart buildings

    Considering that energy use in buildings represents more than 40% of global energy consumption and that humans spend 90% of the time indoors, technologies enabling smarter buildings can lead to significant reductions in greenhouse gas emissions, and produce a comfortable, efficient and sustainable environment. This is to be achieved through smart sensing, advanced automation, and intelligent computing/communication technologies to efficiently operate, monitor, and maintain buildings. In this talk, two topics will be highlighted, including 1) Integrated Building Energy Management, 2) HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, and Air Condition) Fault Detection. For each topic, problem importance, challenges and some of our results obtained thus far will be highlighted. The goal is to demonstrate that Smart Buildings are a fertile problem context for meaningful research and development. The talk will end with a brief introduction of the Technical Committee on Smart Buildings of the IEEE Robotics and Automation Society (RAS).

The alarms system presented in this paper is part of the effort to provide a proper framework for enhancing devices and services interoperability in smart buildings environment. Users will benefit of increased comfort, since actions can be taken as soon as an alarm occurs. Alarm conditions and policies can be easily customized and adapted to different scenarios, such as providing support to elderly people or monitoring patients with various medical conditions in their smart home environments. The alarms service provides real time feedback, thus allowing immediate action to be taken.
