Welcome to TIBUCON. This project brings together experts, stakeholders and end users in ICT for Energy Efficient Buildings to develop a new ICT component towards the energy use abatement and comfort improvement in new and existing buildings.
The current project proposes a solution beyond the existing wireless based HVAC control systems, derived from the use of Self Powered Multi Magnitude Wireless Sensor Network (SP-MM-WSN) for building thermal condition monitoring. The SPMMWSN completely avoids the use of cables and removable batteries, thanks to the combination of extremely energy efficient wireless communication technology, ultra low power electronics, and the power harvesting concept. The use of SPMMWSN therefore, results in an easy-to-deploy and maintenance free building monitoring system that makes it the ideal candidate for either new or existing HVAC installations.
TIBUCON is funded by the European Commission under the Seventh Framework Programme. The project consortium consists of academic and industrial partners throughout Europe covering the ICT and construction areas.
TIBUCON is coordinated by Piotr Dymarski, Mostostal Warzsawa, Poland. The project duration is 3 years starting from 1st September 2010.
