Event description

Description

The recent technological advancement in Internet of Things (IoT) has enabled sensor technologies to expand in everyday life beyond our expectations. It has benefitted greatly in environmental monitoring of buildings too. With easy access to internet (via Wi-Fi), sensors can publish data to a cloud server in real-time, which can eliminate the need to make trips to the monitored building to download data in physical memory of computer or portable memory devices. This workshop will: provide an introduction to wireless environmental monitoring system; demonstrate ySense data logger use; show how to conduct thermal comfort surveys; explore visualization of environmental data and thermal comfort responses; and discuss the application of the device in research projects.

This workshop is part of the Sustainable Built Environment 2016 - International High-Performance Built Environments Conference in Sydney. It is only opened to conference registered delegates and UNSW students and staff.

The workshop is organised by Dr. Anir Upadhyay and Malay Dave, UNSW.

Anir Upadhyay is a Research Fellow at UNSW Built Environment. He is working on a CRC for Low Carbon Living research project that investigates residential energy consumption and GHG emissions. He is trained as an architect and has a PhD in sustainable design from the University of Sydney. Anir is passionate about climatic design and is working towards simplifying climate data for building professionals. He co-designed ySense (an advanced sensor technology) for collecting environmental data and conducting thermal comfort surveys.

Malay Dave is a sessional academic at UNSW Built Environment where he teaches in undergraduate and postgraduate courses in sustainability. He holds Bachelor of Architecture from CEPT University, India and Master of the Built Environment (Sustainable Development) from UNSW Australia. After working in the architecture profession in India and Australia for more than a decade he is currently pursuing doctoral research on sustainable affordable prefab housing at the CRC for Low Carbon Living.
