Internet of Things in the Built Environment

PI: Dr. Xinghua Gao

With the networks of sophisticated sensors and devices, building systems have the potential to serve as the infrastructure that provides essential data for the Internet of Things (IoT)-enabled Smart Built Environment paradigm. However, current building systems lack inter-system connectivity or exposure to the larger networks of IoT devices. Our team is working on an IoT-enabled data acquisition framework that utilizes low-cost computers, sensors modules, developed software agents, and the existing building Wi-Fi network to establish a central facility database.
