Description

The main objective of the assignment is the application of the concepts studied in the current course that encompasses the processes of cyber-physical systems modelling. Students have to address the following: system
requirements and missions definition, and those models that are applicable to represent the overall system. This assignment has been devised to be performed by teams of about 5 people.

Currently, university campuses must be energy-aware and manage the energy consumption of their buildings efficiently. To that end, the information provided by the crowd (students) is critical, since they can
provide massive information about the luminosity or temperature of the installations in order to only consume the required energy.

Nowadays, there are no applications to obtain this information from the crowd and to provide an added value for the students and institutions. From this need and the results of the project CROWDSAVING, the project Smart Campus aims to construct a proof concept in TRL-7 is based on the construction of a crowdsensing platform that consists of a crowdsensing mobile application, a distributed sensor network and acquisition and grouping data services.

This Smart Campus proof of concept is going to provide an added value to the university community, since it may help the improvement of energy efficiency, cost-saving, teaching quality, classroom well-being, and use of public transports. In addition, the product will provide a huge amount of data that can be queried by other institutions, companies or researchers to be used for research or innovation activities.

Assessment: The students should submit a report documenting their solution and the report is assessed by the professors enrolled in the course.
