By combining multiple data sets from different sources you can learn a lot, even if the data sets themselves are quite small. This is something to consider when you plan installing IoT sensors.
In the classroom example from one of Sensative’s school projects we combine five different sources to gain some insights in how this classroom should be used. This would be difficult to understand if using, for instance, just a temperature sensor.
- The temperature and humidity of the class room builds up during the week.
- The class room needs the weekend to be unoccupied in order for the temperature and humidity to go back to normal levels.
- The facility can’t currently be used during the weekend without causing more build up, unless some changes are made to the ventilation system.
