An Intuitive Environment for the Development of Smart Building Management Systems

Section 1 Project Overview

The goal of this PhD project is the formalization and the development of a generic modular environment that can be used by all type of users: experts and non-experts (e.g. building experts, facility managers, architects, civil engineers, etc.). It enables the development and the deployment of the BMS (Building Management Systems) / BEMS (Building Energy Management Systems) / BCS (Building Control Systems) solutions, by integrating basic intelligent elements for data collection, processing and visualization.

The study is designed to develop a technological base that offers:

  • A generic framework/architecture for managing smart and energy efficient buildings
  • A platform enabling a visual development for such buildings
  • Intelligent processing and data visualization modules

Section 2 Collaborators

Nobatek
A private technological resource center, located in Anglet – France, which develops research activities and provide innovative service activities in sustainable development and construction areas. In the context of its actions, Nobatek led missions of instrumentation, management, andcontrol of intelligent buildings (acquisition phases and processing data, monitoring and steering) with a strong challenge at the present time in the autonomous and intelligent functioning of the buildings.

The LIUPPA (laboratory) T2I team

Also located in Anglet – France, is a computer science laboratory related to the “Université de PAU et des Pays de l’Adour” (UPPA), and interested in the formalization of digital ecosystems in multimedia sensory networks and microgrids.

The aim of the collaboration between Nobatek and LIUPPA is to extend their work to themanagement of intelligent buildings. Section 5 External Links
