A Data-driven Self-aware Smart Building with Internet-of-Things

Description

Buildings are among the largest consumers of energy, topping 40% of total energy usage in many countries. A significant portion of energy use in buildings is attributed to the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC), which accounts for up to 50% of the total energy consumption in buildings.
 
In this project, we develop data-driven self-aware smart buildings, which can explicitly construct physical models of themselves (e.g., incorporating building structures, materials, and thermal flow dynamics) to enable effective real-time control in building management systems. We will utilize real-time Internet-of-Things systems, such as wireless sensors, mobile devices, and smart appliances.
