Semantically-enhanced IoT-enabled Building Analytics and Diagnostics

We spend 85-90% of our lives in buildings and require them to offer a comfortable and safe environment, as well as to be operated efficiently for economic reasons and compliance with EU and national regulations. As a result, most commercial buildings are already equipped with Building Automation Systems (BAS) and sub-systems that monitor and control heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) and other parameters (such as air quality, lighting, water distribution and security).

BAS  solutions typically require pre-deployed devices and pre-designed monitoring and control intelligence. However, the emerging level of maturity of the Internet of Things paradigm and the subsequent proliferation and high penetration of smart portable and embedded devices (i.e. sensors, mobile devices, etc.) that can be deployed in buildings, taking advantage of readily available wireless internet infrastructure, turn the BAS market into a rapidly growing market. It is expected to grow at an annual rate of 16.7%, from €5.6 billion in 2016 to €16.2 billion in 2023, making it a very attractive market.

Domognostics+ project aims to conduct industrial research and develop and evaluate  an innovative low-cost intelligent software/hardware solution  designed for building operators to  better monitor and control  their building systems and  reduce their operational expenses  due to systems' inefficiencies or previously undetected events (i.e. water leakages, energy losses), based on state-of-the-art research-based data analytics, machine learning and artificial intelligence methods.
