Towards a wireless sensor platform for energy efficient building operation
Ó Mathúna, S. Cian
Currently, the IT-support for energy performance rating of buildings is insufficient. So-called IT-platforms often “built” of an ad-hoc, inconsistent combination of off-the-shelf building management components, distributed data metering equipment and several monitoring software tools. A promising approach to achieve consistent, holistic performance data management is the implementation of an integrated, modular wireless sensor platform. This paper presents an approach of how wireless sensors can be seamlessly integrated into existing and future intelligent building management systems supporting improved building performance and diagnostics with an emphasis on energy management.
