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?
CITRIS and the Banatao Institute, along with other UC Berkeley campus partners, presented the second annual Aging Research and Technology Summit earlier this month, to highlight research and technology solutions being developed to disrupt the development of neurodegenerative diseases.
