End-to-End Steam Plant Efficiency Evaluation

All of our sensing projects operate under the same broad umbrella.

Our indoor sensing project is initially focused on the efficiency of the steam generation plant at Bates College. Specifically, we want sensors we can deploy to many rooms in a building (50+) to monitor temperature changes in the building, and begin developing an end-to-end picture of generation plant/system efficiency.

  1. MUST: Function on battery for at least 3 months.
  2. MUST: Measure temperature every 10 minutes.
  3. MUST: Communicate data wirelessly (WiFi) at least daily.
  4. SHOULD: Store data locally in case of network failure.
  5. SHOULD: Be able to be configured quickly, in-field, via mobile device.
