TOSS: Thermal Occupancy Sensing System


We propose a system that can accurately determine the occupancy of zones within a building. As an easily deployable sensor system, TOSS provides detailed information about a zone's occupancy to a building's energy management system in order to control the Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning, (HVAC) and lighting behavior for specific zones within the building. This incurs a significant benefit, as building zones that are not fully occupied do not require 100% use of the HVAC or lighting systems.
