Abstract

Energy needs to be used as effectively as possible by anticipating on the human behaviour with the purpose of providing optimal comfort. The purpose of this research is to assess the energy saving potential by sending the energy to those spots (hotspots) where needed and to determine how the user can be taken into account in the design to improve the performances of office buildings. Possibilities for human position tracking measurements by means of a WSN were investigated to determine the user behavior of aoocpants of a building. An experimental set-up was developed which was implemented on the 3th floor of one of the offices of Royal Haskoning consulting engineers. This showed the positive effect of using wireless technology to optimize the occupants comfort while minimizing the energy consumption,
