Camgian Microsystems, Vanderbilt University launch Internet of Things application

Sponsored by

Camgian Microsystems Corp. and Vanderbilt University’s School of Engineering have collaborated to prototype a new Internet of Things (IoT) energy intelligence system for the facility management market through the engineering school’s senior design program.

Effectively capturing and processing usage data from large buildings can provide facility managers with a tool for reducing expenses in their operations. However, cost effective collection, communication and analytical processing of this data across large, distributed facilities is a challenge.

To address this need, four Vanderbilt civil engineering seniors have prototyped a novel IoT energy intelligence system that correlates sensor data related to occupancy patterns and environmental conditions, which can support optimization of building controls.

Engineering senior design courses provide Vanderbilt students with experience working on real-world projects that involve design constraints, budgets, reviews and deadlines. The Camgian-sponsored team was able to learn about the principles of design, professionalism, entrepreneurship and the day-to-day implications of intellectual property.

Camgian Microsystems is a provider of advanced sensing technologies and solutions for the Internet of Things market. Camgian's latest innovation, its Quantus sensor fusion engine, supports the deployment of intelligent mobile sensing solutions that enable organizations to more effectively manage remote industrial assets and improve operational efficiency.
