Wearable Sensors for advanced energy management

This research topic addresses the deployment of wearable sensors that together with fixed nodes might be used in advanced energy management. We have experience in the application of hybrid systems for in indoor localization of people in smart buildings. Knowing the position of people and moving devices besides other captured information will serve to improve the management and energy efficiency of smart buildings . The fixed IoT nodes provide an accurate positioning information and can be used as routers for uploading information to the cloud. Simulation of edge-devices plus the indoor localization techniques in IoT motes for a large deployment inside a smart building might be considered valuable.
