An Economic Model-Based Predictive Control to Manage the Users’ Thermal Comfort in a Building
The goal of maintaining users’ thermal comfort conditions in indoor environments may require complex regulation procedures and a proper energy management. This problem is being widely analyzed, since it has a direct ...
Early forest fire detection by vision-enabled wireless sensor networks
(CSIRO Publishing, 2012)
Wireless sensor networks constitute a powerful technology particularly suitable for environmental monitoring. With regard to wildfires, they enable low-cost fine-grained surveillance of hazardous locations like wildland-urban ...
Repetitive Control to Improve Users’ Thermal Comfort and Energy Efficiency in Buildings
The development of control systems to reach and maintain optimal thermal comfort inside buildings is a research topic which has received great attention in the last several years because people’s productivity is linked ...
Limiting Global Warming by Improving Data-Centre Software
(IEEE Computer Society, 2020)
Carbon emissions, greenhouse gases and pollution in general are usually related to traditional factories, so the most modern computing factories have gone unnoticed for the general-public opinion. We empirically show through ...
