Smart Buildings

SmartBuildings involves the use of ICT to meet a range of objectives, including optimised thermal comfort, energy efficiency and improved access control. M2M communications are a key foundation stone for SmartBuildings and OSNA can play a key role in securing such communications.

NUI Galway have a well established research group in this space – IRUSE (Informatics Research Unit for Sustainable Engineering). IRUSE is led by Dr. Marcus Keane and has strong collaborative links to the OSNA group.
