Wireless Sensor Network Deployment for Building Environmental Monitoring and Control

  title={Wireless Sensor Network Deployment for Building Environmental Monitoring and Control},
  author={Essa Jafer and Rostislav Spinar and Paul Stack and Se{\'a}n Cian O'Mathuna and Dirk Pesch},
It is commonly agreed that a 15-40% reduction of building energy consumption is achievable by efficiently operated buildings when compared with typical practice. Existing research has identified that the level of information available to Building Managers with existing Building Management Systems and Environmental Monitoring Systems (BMS/EMS) is insufficient to perform the required performance based building assessment. The majority of today’s buildings are insufficiently sensored to obtain an… 

Design and deployment of a new wireless sensor node platform for building environmental monitoring and control

A wireless sensor network mote hardware design and implementation are introduced particularly for building deployment application and the core of the mote design is based on the 8-bit AVR microcontroller and 2.4 GHz wireless communication chip, CC2420.
