Joint PhD: Developing Practical Pervasive Energy Monitoring and Data Analytic Solutions for Housing


It is anticipated that the PhD research work will include (but not be limited to) the following:
• a science and technology review of environmental and energy monitoring, data analytic techniques, energy services and mobile interfaces for data delivery;
• testing and selection of pervasive sensing technologies;                                         
• identifying user requirements for energy services and interfaces through interviews and testing;
• development of a sensing system featuring data acquisition, energy services and mobile interfaces;
• field trialling of the sensing system; and
• gathering information on user responses to mobile interfaces and energy services.
