Project Description 

Networked Embedded Systems (NEMBES) is a CIT led project which aims at combining embedded systems and ICT technologies with buildings for sensing, monitoring, and control. NEMBES is comprised of three main research strands; Health, Transport, and Facilities Management. My research mainly focuses on the use of Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) for tracking, identification, and localization methods and applications in Facilities Management. It is aimed to monitor and diagnose user behaviour towards buildings and provide an automated system for thermal comfort.
