Outline of a system for sensor-driven, high-resolution building models

Abstract: The continuous monitoring and evaluation of the performance of buildings and products, in particular during construction, operation, and de-commissioning phases is not well established and currently limited to a few safety- and mission-critical systems. We introduce sensor-driven, high-resolution building models (SDBM) that could provide more comprehensive and detailed information on the structure and state of a facility over space and time from pre-construction to demolition. Enabled by sensor technologies that permit the location and identification of building components in 3D space, SDBM would be capable to detect certain changes occurring in a building and automatically construct and update a detailed, structured building model. Such a model could provide services to applications in domains such as building automation and facility management. We outline a general system architecture for SDBM. Furthermore, we describe the features of a system for the simulation-assisted lighting control domain that will serve as a testbed for SDBM.
