Abstract


Occupant behaviour has been shown to have a large impact on the energy consumed in buildings than other thermal related process. For worthwhile energy savings, it is therefore crucial that occupant behaviour be included in the process control of building systems. For this set of control objective with the user central in the control of building systems, it is most important to detect the individual user on a specific workplace within a time span of minutes because the inertia of the building systems is in this order of his magnitude. The indoor occupancy detection system should be able to detect every individual in a spatial area and to be able to track and trace the person. Therefore an indoor occupancy detection and positioning system is being designed which, can communicate with a Building Energy Management System (BMS). The results of a first experiment are described in this paper.
