Santa Cruz Tech Beat: Michael Matkin, Assistant Director of CITRIS Santa Cruz, writes about three UC Santa Cruz student-helmed companies that got started via the CITRIS Foundry.
Detecting temperature, humidity, or occupancy can make buildings “smarter.” The information can lead to reductions in energy consumption and improve the comfort of occupants by responding to energy demands in real time. We commonly see a single thermometer or humidity sensor per room, which can only provide limited information. What about deploying many cheap and disposable sensors to capture more granular data about buildings and energy use patterns?
