Smart Space Orchestration Hands-On

with the Intel Edison Platform

Nov 21, 2014 - LRZ @ TUM Campus Garching bei München

On this page you find an alphabetic list of all speakers.

The S2O workshop is about making smart spaces become reality. In fact, smart spaces are reality already in research labs.

In the 10 o’clock slot, you have the chance to get to know about such smart spaces that are currently reality in research. Ten experts will tell you their different perspectives.

The BaaS Model House

In this talk I would like to introduce the BaaS Model House to you. It is a small scale physical building model including a lot of building automation technology. We build this model along the research done in the BaaS project and want to reflect the results in it.

Some of the problems occurring whilst developing building automation systems is the great effort testing the developed services, need of infrastructure and impact on the building usage. With the BaaS Model House we create a clear and easy to overview test environment we can use for demonstration and presentation of building automation systems. Finally we want to be able to develop building automation services tested on the model and deploy them in houses equipped with automation technologies. Therefore we integrate and use building automation hardware and technologies resulting in realistic behavior of the running system.

Get ready for further insights and the current state of our approach.

Smart Energy Living Lab @ fortiss

In this talk the Smart Energy Living lab at fortiss will be introduced. This demonstrator is integrated in a real office environment which represents a node of the future smart grid. The current implementation supports various device classes from different kinds of energy technology like solar panels, batteries, smart meters, actuators and sensors using different protocols. The demonstrator system is used to monitor, control, and manage the office environment as well as to store signals and data from every connected device. Furthermore, a rule system is applied to support autonomous behavior and increase the energy savings. In addition, mobile applications and corresponding interfaces are developed to interact with the system.

The Smart Energy Living Lab provides a basis for further research directions, which deal among others with the collection of sensor data, the analysis and forecast of production/consumption values, the creation of energy awareness, as well as the interconnection and interaction with other Smart Grid Nodes including energy related services.

Internet of Things and embedded : easy prototyping, fast production transition | Hands-On

Internet of Things : I love it, I even have an idea for a product. But how do I start developing a prototype ? And how to go from a prototype to a production batch ? That’s the problem IoT developers are facing today. It’s part embedded computing, part electronics, part software and you can’t be expert in everything. There’s plenty of platforms available, from Raspberry Pi to Arduino, but they all have different capabilities and features. It’s hard to choose. Plus, most of them are not convenient to put into production. So, why not start with Intel Edison ? It’s very small, works with USB power, has wifi and Bluetooth 4. It’s a linux PC so it’s easy to work with. But there’s a microcontroller inside too. Sounds interesting ? Come with us to code on Galileo and Edison !

IDEM -- Enforcing access control on data streams

In smart buildings a multitude of sensors measures the state of the building and its usage by the inhabitants. These information are collected at different places and at a time when it might be still unclear where these information will be analysed. It is therefore insufficient to imagine a centralized database for the storage of the information. Data streams are rather sent around and parts of it stored at different and/or multiple places. As a consequence, access control cannot rely on a database management system or a broker component but must be inherent to the data streams itself. We present a solution to this problem which uses attribute based encryption to protect data streams and enforce access control on the data level.

A Semantic Service Framework
for Building Automation Systems

This presentation will give a short overview of problems and challenges in building automation systems of today. The BaaS Semantic Service Platform aims at facilitating the development, engineering, commissioning and operation of innovative value-added building services along their lifecycle. The lifecycle support for services offered by the BaaS platform will be illustrated by means of a simple use case on monitoring of heating efficiency in buildings.

Predictive Automation for Energy Efficient Buildings

In the research project BaaS TWT develops mechanisms to reduce the energy consumption of shared spaces. As HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, Air-Conditioning) is one of the largest contributor to the overall energy consumption of buildings, our goal is to develop a proactive temperature control schema for shared spaces (e.g. meeting rooms) taking into account user-preferences, the room geometry, the outside temperature, as well as historical data. In this talk we give a first insight into our concept for using sensor fusion, information processing and domain-specific optimization algorithms in our planned demonstrator.

Smart Spaces -- a Research Perspective |
Why do we want Smart Rooms? | Hands-On

In the first talk I will give you a brief dive into smart space research.

In the demo session I will show you why smart rooms enable much more flexible use than non-smart rooms. At the example of a meeting room we show how space orchestration via software enables a dynamic reconfiguration of a room. Positive effects of such flexible usage are increased comfort and a reduced energy footprint.

In the hands-on we will develop something quite cool with you. Be curious ;)

Intuitive Control of Smart Spaces

Recent developments in smart home and smart office controls tend to lock the occupants out of the system on the assumption that they will make errors or lose interest in controlling their environment. I assume that providing an intuitively usable control is crucial to comfort, well being and energy efficiency. In this presentation, I will present my research around the intuitive control of smart spaces including gesture controls and iPhones.
