Consistent and reliable data is essential in achieving optimised building and system. With some systems producing data down to a second interval, today’s buildings are capable of generating millions of units of data every day. This data needs to be correlated to specific sensors and activators, and with thousands of construction products and sensors on the market, a robust method of correlation and capturing is essential.
Our research on data and monitoring is focussed on open-source data capture, naming schemas, and the enabling of digital platforms for broad application of these resources.
We have recently developed a secure, open-source IoT platform for receiving and storing system-agnostic data, which we are currently testing and continuing to develop. It can be downloaded here.
