Project Title:
Low-cost Wireless Arduino-based Micro Energy Sensor for Smart Energy-Efficient Buildings in the era of Internet of Things
Supervisor:LEE Yi-Kuen
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.
Course type:UROP1000 UROP1100 UROP2100 UROP3100 UROP4100 
Applicant's Roles: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.  
Applicant's Learning Objectives: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 
Complexity of the project:Moderate
