Implement cost effective personal control of the microenvironment, which enhances individual health, satisfaction and productivity, by integrating sensing, intelligent information processing and distributed control,.
* ASHRAE Std. 62 2004 allows for ventilation rates based on both occupancy and floor area. A DCV system based only on CO2 will address the people component but not the passive component.

For the same total airflow rate, we compare two alternatives:
Simulated concentration profile of a gaseous pollutant released in still air at a point
in a room of 9m x 10m x 6m dimensions with source located at (5,5,0)
Probability of detecting whether pollutant concentration exceeds a predefined threshold

y = g(X) + n
where, the random error/noise (n) is zero-mean, X is a d-dimensional vector (e.g., Position coordinates of sensors) and y is a scalar output (e.g., concentration of CO2)
: Location of sensors
The objective is the real time estimation
of concentration value at point C from the
One realization of the spatial profile of CO2 and location of sensors
How many sensors are adequate ?
Summary : About 70 sensors are adequate for MSE of 0.06;
additional sensors do not significantly improve MSE
Future Work: Reduced order models for building inter-zonal
transport (Task 3.2) will provide more realistic and computationally
faster models to test our algorithms
