SEEMPubS - Smart Energy Efficient Middleware for Public Spaces.
The SEEMPubS project is our most resent project, it started first of September and focuses on creating a system that can help public spaces to become more energy efficient. Both new buildings such as offices but also older buildings like museums.
SEEMPubS specifically addresses reduction in energy usage and CO2 footprint in existing Public buildings and Spaces without significant construction works, by an intelligent ICT-based service monitoring and managing the energy consumption. Special attention will be paid to historical buildings to avoid damage by extensive retrofitting. SEEMPubS will provide control of appliances to effortlessly optimise energy efficiency usage without compromising comfort or convenience and offering decision makers strategies and tools needed to plan energy saving measures. SEEMPubS will make use of the service-oriented middleware for embedded systems being developed in the Hydra project and use its huge potential to create services and applications across heterogeneous devices to develop an energy-aware platform. The SEEMPubS platform will provide necessary functionality and tools to add energy efficiency features to monitor dynamic sensor data in real time, taking advantage of natural resources (like daylight and solar energy) and controlling the operation of both passive and active environmental systems to ensure the best possible comfort conditions with the most efficient use of energy.
