New occupancy detection device designed to save home energy use

Ya Wang, center, and her Mechanical Engineering students are testing the SLEEPIR sensor prototype in the laboratory. Credit: Stony Brook University Photoelectric infrared (PIR) sensors are the current choice for occupancy presence detection in buildings. The sensors are used for smart thermostats to control heating and cooling based on occupancy. A major problem is that these PIR sensors only detect individuals who are moving. A Stony Brook University research team is developing a new type of PIR sensor that is…

Digital App Marketplace can help Governments improve Public Sector Operations.

A government digital app marketplace is a digital storefront where a government can showcase its cloud-based applications for general public or internal use. This gives emerging civic technologists and startups a single platform to launch their innovations for a greater good of the society.
