The Advanced Methods for Building Diagnostics and Maintenance (AMBI) is a research project funded by Marie-Curie call FP7-PEOPLE-2012-IAPP. AMBI aims at application of advanced diagnostics and prognostics for optimized maintenance of building automation systems. The goal is to enhance facility management with efficient decision making about maintenance actions.
The building maintenance is addressed in a systematic way. Framework of stochastic hybrid systems is adopted to formulate and optimize a variety of diagnostics algorithms and maintenance actions. Virtual sensors, which are automatically setup based on available building information, provide additional data points necessary for efficient reasoning.
