Building Performance

Part of the Digital Environment Project

Building performance systems are becoming more common in an effort to expose and measure the operational efficiency of a building. Going beyond current graphical or floor-plan viewers, we examine advanced 3D real-time sensor-network visualizations as part of a building debugging tool to improve building efficiency.

Project Dasher

Project Dasher is a web-based application that helps to augment existing AutodeskĀ® RevitĀ® design models with real-time building submeter and sensor data on electricity and occupancy.
