The IMPReSS project had the paper "Context-Aware Energy Efficiency Management for Smart Buildings" accepted for the IEEE 2nd World Forum on Internet of Things (WF-IoT) in December 2015.

The paper was a result of a collaboration between IMPReSS partners UFABC, UFPE and FIT and describes the functionalities of IMPReSS Context Manager. The following is the abstract from the paper:

The importance of energy in our society has been growing drastically but still, public buildings are very inefficient when it comes to managing energy. Current management systems are usually designed for automating lighting and HVAC. We see the potential of using IoT in this scenario but unfortunately developing context-aware IoT systems still takes tremendous efforts. In the IMPReSS project, we built a Systems Development Platform (SDP) that enables rapid development of IoT and context aware systems for energy efficiency in smart buildings. Our solution has been implemented and evaluated through a prototype, covering a university classroom scenario where lighting and temperature are controlled automatically. We observed that the IMPReSS Context Manager enables rapid system changes, as expected.

The paper was presented in Session S20: IoT and Smart Infrastructures. It is due to be published by IEEE shortly and a download link will then be made available in the download section here on the IMPReSS website.

The IEEE WF-IoT 2015 was held in Milan, Italy, on 14-16 December 2015. More information on the event is available here.
