S4EEB - Sounds for Energy-Efficient Buildings
S4EeB will develop and deliver a prototype to optimize the existent Building Management Systems (BMS) by means of acquiring, identifying, monitoring, and adding the parameter of occupancy level in buildings and surroundings to enhance operations and eliminate unnecessary consumptions of energy for Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning, Lighting (HVACL), and other existent production and consumption systems, maintaining users comfort.
