Abstract:

Educational institutions, should set a role model, in the reduction of the carbon foot print, to protect mother earth. In this paper we focus on designing a Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) based system, which can efficiently conserve the energy of class rooms and labs. We have identified temperature, light, pressure sensors to be utilized for this application. Infra Red receiver and transmitter is used to detect an event whether a person is leaving the room or not. Server room is checked for humidity, temperature, smoke by an integrated sensor, which sends the sensed data to the cloud. So all the sensors send the data periodically to the cloud, which processes the collected data and send the triggered response to the necessary output device and message the facility manager to take administrative actions. The status of each room in each floor is ultimately received at the central monitoring station at the ground floor of the building. The proposed system is designed in such a manner, it can be replicated cost-efficiently in multiple buildings within a campus by using low cost sensors and with the existing communication devices. Therefore this Green Campus System (GCS) design based on wireless sensor networks help in meeting the target of sustainable cities by reducing the overall energy consumption and improving the efficiency in the energy resource management
