ITOBO(Information and Communication Technology for Sustainable and Optimised Building Operation)

Funding Body: Science Foundation Ireland (Strategic Research Cluster; 2007 to 2012)

Period (start to end): 01/2008-01/2011 (Possible 2 year extension to end of 2012)

Researcher: Paul Stack

Project Description

ITOBO, will undertake research in Information and Communication Technology that will enable us to develop a holistic, methodological framework for life-cycle oriented information management and decision support in the construction and energy-management sectors. The domain-specific goal is to develop an anticipating (smart) building that operates on an energy-efficient and user-friendly basis while reducing its maintenance costs.  ITOBO will contribute to the holistic development of Network Enabled Building Management Systems through an academic/industry collaboration with multidisciplinary expertise in:

    * Hardware Design

    * Wireless Systems integration and network protocol development

    * Constraint-based Decision Support

    * N-dimensional Information Modelling

 * Facilities Management with access to sophisticated built infrastructure and co-operation with standardisation bodies.

ITOBO will make specific scientific contributions to:

   * Ubiquitous sensing infrastructures

    * Disruptive networking paradigms

    * Decision support systems

    * Dynamic, re-configurable service architectures
