Queryable Smart Building for Sustainable Future

This project aims at modelling building data with semantic annotations to make them meaningful. More specifically, our objective is to develop a semantic interoperable layer so the building managers (sustainable) can run sophisticated queries over the data. State of the art building management systems mostly throw away data after monitoring few pre-defined events. We aim to model data semantically in order to look at the inefficiencies of building though complex multi-dimensional data querying.
