Intelligent Buildings Laboratory

The Intelligent Buildings Laboratory (IBL) aims to embrace the aresas of intelligent buildings, multi-agent systems, wireless sensor networks and building accessment in both academic research and industrial solutions. IBL has a strong link and collaboration with Intelligent Buildings Research Group as well as other industry partners.

Current Research Students

  • Jarunee Duangsuwan (Information Integration, decision support systems; agent technology)
  • (Multi-agent system; wireless sensor networks; computer vision)
  • Yu Ma (Intelligent buildings assessment)
  • Stuart Moran (Pervasive computing; intelligent environments for health care)
  • Zhuotao Huang


  • November 2005- January 2008 Coordinated Management of Intelligent Pervasive Spaces (CMIPS), supported by DTI Research (CHB/003/00044C), in collaboration with Thales and Arup. The project aims to develop a proof of concept pervasive management system to provide co-ordinated management of the various orthogonal systems (HVAC, lighting and security systems, etc.) within buildings.
  • 2006 – 2008 Intelligent Buildings for Personalisation, a part of the research project of Innovation in Design, Construction and Operation of Buildings for People (IDCOP), sponsored by EPSRC (GR/T04878/01), in collaboration with Southampton University, Greenwich University and industrial partners. The aim of the IDCOP consortium is to find new ways to improve the performance of building envelopes over the whole building life cycle.
