Abstract

Energy efficiency in buildings is one of the promising fields of application of wireless sensor networks. Simple affordable sensors can be used to monitor the power consumption of appliances in buildings to implement smart algorithms in order to conserve energy. The ARTEMIS Joint Undertaking project eDIANA (Embedded Systems for Energy Efficient Buildings) funded by the European Commission aims to improve energy efficiency in buildings by using embedded technologies. In the eDIANA platform the energy consumed by household or office appliances is monitored by using IEEE 802.15.4/Zigbee-compliant devices. In this paper we describe the prototype that we have developed by using ZigBee Smart Energy Profile in order to realize the eDIANA application scenarios. Moreover we provide latency statistics and packet error rate obtained through our test-bed in different monitoring scenarios.
