Award Description: 'Sensor Systems for Complete Residential Energy Monitoring' TIAX is developing residential energy monitoring components for systems that are inexpensive, easy to install and operate, and supportive of intuitive decision making about energy usage. In addition to electricity usage for plug-in devices, measurement components will be designed for data collection of energy use related to residential infrastructure systems including furnaces, boilers, water heaters, and air conditioners. The sensor components use wireless connections to a central data collection and display node. The design is targeted to achieve a price point that will lead to a payback period of no more than three year for the average consumer. The system will be designed using human factors engineering methodologies so that it will be easy to install and operate while monitoring the energy use of specific end-use devices and providing feedback to the user.
Project Description: Developed prototype hardware and software components for residential energy monitoring systems.
Jobs Summary: Types of jobs: electronics, software, and human factors engineers; Impact on the work force: retained jobs (Total jobs reported: 1)
