Low-cost Wireless Arduino-based Micro Energy Sensor for Smart Energy-Efficient Buildings in the era of Internet of Things
Project Description

Measurements of energy in terms of BTU (British Thermal Unit) rate and thermal comfort index (ASHARE Predicted Mean Vote/PMV) are important to develop smart HVAC system The goal of this project in collaboration with MIT, is to build a low-cost wireless Arduino-based multi-sensor module for smart HVAC control system.
