experience sampling

Large scale comfort perception sensing through mobile experience sampling techniques

Maintaining comfort is the purpose of buildings and energy is often needed for it. With more and more severe energy efficiency requirements and ever increasing building automation to achieve it, there is a need to gather the actual comfort sensation of building users, to optimise buidling control.

Yet comfort sensation is a subjective perception, that shows high variability among users, depending on their activity, their clothing, their environement, etc. The experience sampling approach allows to gather user perception about a given while they go about their normal doings.
