Project Synopsis

The construction sector in Ireland contributes more than 20% of the Irish GDP while buildings account for approx. 40% of Ireland’s energy usage, contributing to over 30% of CO2 emissions.

The goal is to improve asset management while supplementing efforts to fulfil the Kyoto Protocol requirements.

Thus ITOBO will...

  •  enhance the management of large-scale, complex networks, services, and mobile users through introducing new network and management protocols
  •  develop frameworks and algorithms to support mixed-initiative configuration for energy efficient buildings
  •  design a system architecture that will support scale-free composition of service coalitions
  •  support seamless end-to-end network composition and service operation through sensor and RFID hardware with dynamic features
