Low-cost Wireless Arduino-based Micro Energy Sensor for Smart Energy-Efficient Buildings in the era of Internet of Things
Measurements of energy in terms of BTU (British Thermal Unit) rate are extensively employed in the energy industry, such as HVAC system by using steam, hot water or refrigerant, and real-time natural gas monitoring. The goal of this project in collaboration with MIT, is to build a low-cost wireless Arduino-based Micro BTU sensor for smart energy-efficient buildings.
