ABSTRACT:
This study developed an energy management system (EMS) via internet-of-things (IOT) for lighting control on a university campus in Taiwan. The system structure of EMS was composed of five layers: a network layer using WebAccess, an application layer using software and controllers, a control layer using remote I/O, an equipment layer using the lighting equipment, and a perception layer using light sensors. The proposed system for lighting control on a university campus was completed successfully and running smoothly online. This study provides valuable reference in engineering and technology education employed in training and development programs.
