About

The Internet of Things (IoT) is increasingly influencing our personal lives, businesses and infrastructures. It interconnects devices having embedded processing, sensors, data storage and physical capabilities, such as actuation. The interconnection of such devices enables the sharing of data and processing for mutual benefit. For buildings and their heating, ventilating and air-conditioning (HVAC) systems, the IoT can support improvements in monitoring of equipment and space conditions, energy management, supervisory control and participation in electric-utility demand response programs to mention a few. The presentations in this course provide examples of how the IoT can deliver improvements to building operation and control.

Objectives

  1. Define the IoT
  2. Describe 3 potential uses of the IoT in building operation and control
  3. Characterize the prevalence of connected thermostats in homes currently
  4. Describe how the IoT can be used to optimize building or home operation for a building subject to time varying electricity prices
