Estonian Pilot

Participating partners
  • Tallinna Tehnikaülikool
  • Thinnect OÜ
  • Know-Center Gmbh Research Center For Data-Driven Business & Big Data Analytics
  • Ascalia d.o.o.

The Estonian pilot targets multiple building scenarios, operated by local municipalities such as administrative and social care buildings, schools, kindergartens, and universities. The pilot addresses limited understanding of indoor climate parameters by installing new sensors for monitoring IAQ in buildings. The key aim is to integrate a critical number of municipal buildings, applying AI and Big Data Analytics for data analysis. The pilot will support a systemic change in the awareness of people, which may also support changes in behaviour. This will be achieved by instrumentation – sensors in buildings and by collecting and analysing the experience and perception of people using the buildings.

Long-term objectives include:

  1. To improve understanding of the IAQ and the factors influencing it.
  2. To develop a big data processing methodology and automated tools for continuous IAQ monitoring;
  3. To increasing public awareness and implement behaviour changes in building occupants to change the behaviour to reduce negative health effects in indoor environments;
  4. To support facility managers in improving the IAQ.
