Smart and integrated control of building services

The aim of the project is to develop solutions for controlling the office building environment by the means of intelligent and learning methods. Also system integration is considered.

The goal of the project is to improve the comfort conditions and thus productivity of employers and at the same time to achieve energy savings.

The goals are attained by developing new user interface solutions, control strategies and sensor technology. The approach in the project is user oriented. The control of the user environment is realized by the means of technical system, which is controlled via the user interface. HUT's responsibility in this project is to implement new control algorithms and to explore new sensor technology.

The project is part of Tekes CUBE program. VTT and TKK take the responsibility of the research work.
