  • Schema.
  • Related work
  • To gain more experience in the wireless sensor network field.
  • To employ wireless sensor network for the benefits of users (students and visitors to NCTU buildings).
  • What is a smart building?
  • Smart building system gives information for the users about each element inside the building by using wireless sensor networks.
  • RFID readers and tags are also used to achieve this goal.
  • A tag is attached near each object in the building.
  • Smart building data:

- Offices: office’s name, professor’s name, professor’s schedule, publications and others.

  • Class rooms: class room schedule and other information.
  • Laboratories: lab’s name, lab’s members, researches and others.
  • Advertising boards: advertisements sorted by date.
  • A visitor to engineering building 3 in NCTU.
  • He approaches lab 633 with his notebook opened and browsing smart building website.
  • A tag attached near the lab will send lab id to RFID reader with the notebook.
  • The note book will request the related webpage about the lab from the server.
  • Then display the information.
scenario cont
Scenario – Cont.
  • A mote sensing environmental data (ie. Lighting, Sounding) as long as detecting people in the room.
  • The mote updates its sensing data to database server periodically.
  • The web server requests for latest data from database server, whenever a user ask for displaying web pages.
  • User requirements :

- A note book computer with RFID reader.

- An internet browser.

- The user must be able to browse the system web site and view the required information.

  • System requirements:

- A server to store the web pages (http server)

- RFID tags.

- A wireless network.

- A library or API to support the RFID.

- Other non-functional requirements such as user friendly interface and security.

system design
System Design
  • System is designed as the following:

- Using Visual inherited with RFID library to:

* Retrieve ID value from the reader

* Allow write new ID value to the RFID tag

* Design the web pages and the interface.

System Design – Cont.

- Using PHP/SQL to:

    • Display web page dynamically
    • Access database from web page
    • Design administration zone through web page
  • Using Java/SQL to:
    • Retrieve sensing data from mote to PC
    • Upload sensing data from PC to database server
  • Installing all requirements (frameworks and libraries).
  • Doing experiments on RFID; writing to and reading from the tag.
  • Collecting information about the engineering building 3.
  • Building the web pages for every element.
  • Building the HTTP server.
  • Integrate the whole system.
specific applications
Specific Applications
  • Power Saving
  • Meeting Room Allocation
  • A virtual voyage throughout the Engineering Building #3.
  • Anticipate the needs of the building users to provide improved comfort, greater user control, and better energy efficiency.
  • Robust and Flexible for further enhancements
  • User-friendly system


  • This Project could be extended to all the Buildings in the NCTU campus.
  • The performance and efficiency could be enhanced by using High quality RFID devices and advanced readers.
  • Using PDA’s instead of laptops and could be a more compact version
