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.
Successful candidates are expected to design a low-cost wireless Arduino multi-sensor module to calculate real-time Energy (BTU) and thermal comfort index (PMV) using InvenSense CMOS MEMS technology.
Develop basic understanding of open-source Arduino MCU
Hands-on experience for making a prototype of a micro energy/PMV sensor according to ASHARE standard
Collaboration with the MEMS engineers and the MIT collaborator on this project
