Buildings consume 60% of global electricity. However, current building management systems (BMSs) are highly expensive and difficult to justify for small to medium-sized buildings. As such, the Internet of Things (IoT), which can monitor and collect a large amount of data on different contexts of a building and feed the data to the processor of the BMS, provides a new opportunity to integrate intelligence into the BMS to monitor and manage the energy consumption of the building in a cost-effective manner. Although an extensive literature is available on IoT based BMS and applications of signal processing techniques for some aspects of building energy management separately, detailed study on their integration to address the overall BMS is quite limited. As such, the proposed paper will address this gap by providing an overview of an IoT based BMS leveraging signal processing and machine learning techniques. It is demonstrated how to extract high-level building occupancy information through simple and low-cost IoT sensors and studied the impact of human activities on energy usage of a building, which can be exploited to design energy conservation measures to reduce the building's energy consumption.

Effective control of air conditioning systems (ACs) has the potential of significant electricity savings and demand response management for an entire power system. In this context, this paper demonstrates some key experimental results on controlling the electricity consumption of ACs. In particular, the degree to which energy can be throttled for energy management purposes without affecting the end user's comfort level is described. The testbed was set up in a residential building, in which the ...

Energy disaggregation is the task of segregating the aggregate energy of the entire building (as logged by the smartmeter) into the energy consumed by individual appliances. This is a single channel (the only channel being the smart-meter) blind source (different electrical appliances) separation problem. The traditional way to address this is via stochastic finite state machines (e.g., factorial hidden Markov model). In recent times, dictionary learning-based approaches have shown promise in ad...

Public space utilization is crucial for urban developers to understand how efficient a place is being occupied in order to improve existing or future infrastructures. In a smart cities approach, implementing public space monitoring with Internet-of-Things (IoT) sensors appear to be a viable solution. However, choice of sensors often is a challenging problem and often linked with scalability, coverage, energy consumption, accuracy, and privacy. To get the most from low cost sensor with aforementi...

Abstract We propose an Internet of Things (IoT)-based occupancy detection system using change patterns of dust concentrations such as particulate matter. Previous research studies have used other features such as visual, chemical, or acoustic data. In this paper, the point extraction algorithm is proposed to construct triangular shapes, and their properties are used to detect occupancy in an indoor environment. For the verification of the proposed method, an IoT-based system is implemented for t...

Global warming, and the resultant climate change, has become an urgent global issue. One potential partial solution to this problem and the focus of this paper is to design energy management mechanisms for buildings that encourage users’ acceptance of the technology for increased environmental sustainability. Particularly, this paper focuses on the design of an energy management technique for the air-conditioning (AC) systems in residential buildings that considers users’ views on how they use s...

Residential load forecasting has been playing an increasingly important role in modern smart grids. Due to the variability of residents’ activities, individual residential loads are usually too volatile to forecast accurately. A long short-term memory-based deep-learning forecasting framework with appliance consumption sequences is proposed to address such volatile problem. It is shown that the forecasting accuracy can be notably improved by including appliance measurements in the training data....

Ideally, in the method about people counting based on multi-feature regression, the features, such as weighted blob area and perimeter, should have a linear relationship with the number of people in the scene. However, although the overall linear trend, due to the existence of occlusion, the foreground extraction errors and other factors, the local presents nonlinear characteristics. Gauss process regression is very suitable for linear features with local nonlinearity, so it is widely used at pr...

Abstract Intelligent building automation systems can reduce the energy consumption of heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) units by sensing the comfort requirements automatically and scheduling the HVAC operations dynamically. Traditional building automation systems rely on fairly inaccurate occupancy sensors and basic predictive control using oversimplified building thermal response models, all of which prevent such systems from reaching their full potential. Such limitations can no...

Increasing cost and demand of energy has led many organizations to find smart ways for monitoring, controlling and saving energy. A smart Energy Management System (EMS) can contribute towards cutting the costs while still meeting energy demand. The emerging technologies of Internet of Things (IoT) and Big Data can be utilized to better manage energy consumption in residential, commercial, and industrial sectors. This paper presents an Energy Management System (EMS) for smart homes. In this syste...

The goal of this paper is to serve as a guide for selecting a detection architecture that achieves the right speed/memory/accuracy balance for a given application and platform. To this end, we investigate various ways to trade accuracy for speed and memory usage in modern convolutional object detection systems. A number of successful systems have been proposed in recent years, but apples-toapples comparisons are difficult due to different base feature extractors (e.g., VGG, Residual Networks), d...

In this paper, we propose an Internet of Things (IoT) layered architecture that supports heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC), lighting and security systems in a building, depending on continuous environmental parameters monitoring and efficient occupancy detection. The proposed architecture is composed of five layers: end devices, network connectivity, fog processing, cloud processing and security and privacy layers. This architecture is used to build a prototype of an office ambien...

Internet-of-Things (IoT) devices are nowadays massively integrated in daily life: homes, factories, or public places. This technology offers attractive services to improve the quality of life as well as new economic markets through the exploitation of the collected data. However, these connected objects have also become attractive targets for attackers because their current security design is often weak or flawed, as illustrated by several vulnerabilities such as Mirai, Blueborne, etc. This pape...
