The focus is set in the research on environmental sensors in different application environments – objective is to have reliable data for energy efficient conditioning of the air in the environment. The intended implementation is with locally installed sensors, connected via a sensor grid together and to a management system for the air quality.
The project targets two application areas, namely air quality monitoring in aircrafts cabins and HVAC systems in buildings. Indoor air quality is crucial for the well-being of the people inside of it.
LEITAT’s role in the project:
- Support on WP1: Definition of Functional Specifications and Reference Architectures of Wireless Sensor Networks and Data collection and Retrieval systems
- WP5: Leitat will contribute by design and developing indoor energy harvesters (wide-band rectennas) based on electromagnetic sources including RF sources and induction sources from AC mains lines
- WP6: Leitat will contribute to this WP by validating and assessing the energy harvesting modules developed in WP5. It will also Leitat collaborate in the integration of electromagnetic energy harvesters in the building demonstration scenario to arrive at a validation in a real application environment
