Around 20 academic and industrial researchers from the EMMON consortium participated in a meeting at SANJOTEC facilities, on the 27/FEB/2012. The main objective of the meeting was to make a status update of the different WPs and to plan activities to drive EMMON to a successful completion. SANJOTEC (a Science and Technology Park located in São João da Madeira - http://www.sanjotec.com/) is the location of the second EMMON demonstrator (dubbed DEMMON2) - a real-world application of EMMON technologies. An open day (featuring live presentations and demonstrations to the academic and industrial community) is planned for the 29/MAY/2012.
DEMMON2 will enable to test and validate EMMON Wireless Sensor Network technologies in a real-world environment, allowing a fine-grained real-time monitoring of SANJOTEC environmental conditions. Over 400 wireless sensor nodes are being deployed across several floors/rooms in the main SANJOTEC building. Continuously measuring physical parameters such as temperature, light, humidity, CO/CO2 and Ozone through a high density sensor network enables to get a deep and real-time perception of the quality of the environment and also to take corrective actions such as controlling the buildings’ lighting and HVAC systems, improving its energy-efficiency and habitability. In this context, a building management system (from SAUTER) is being integrated with the EMMON WSN system.
