Semantically rich depiction of the concepts for context-aware indoor routing brings appealing benefits for the safety of occupants of smart spaces in emergency evacuation. In this paper, we propose Smart Building Evacuation Ontology (SBEO3), a reusable ontology for indoor spaces, based on three different data models: user, building, and context. We...
Chapter
Evacuation in buildings during emergency situations is crucial to the safety of people, therefore a pragmatic response plan is desirable. Due to the lack of awareness in buildings, either occupants have to wait for instructions from the administration or to start following each other to find the best evacuation route for them on the basis of hit an...
Chapter
Mass evacuation of people in buildings during emergencies is still a burning question regarding safety and reliability. Due to lack of information, crowd prefers to evacuate in the form of random groups. This random grouping increases the possibility of panic among evacuees due to human behavioral factors like herding and stampeding. As a result, c...

In this paper, we study the use of elevators during the time of emergency evacuation. We review the State-of-the-Art and analyze the risks, benefits, and safety measures associated with the use of elevators during hazardous situations. In the end, we discuss some open issues related with the use of elevators in emergency evacuation and propose a sm...

The existing renewable technology in use, particularly solar PVs for homes and other buildings, is billed as a significant step towards providing more robust, secure and affordable electricity. However, unavailability of electricity buyback programs in many regions, and recent changes in buyback policies in some countries make solar costlier due to...

The world needs renewable energy for the long-term future. One of the most promising renewable energy solar PV is ideal for buildings and rooftop. However, the uptake of solar PV in developing countries is rather slow. Mostly because it is expensive but also because heavy electrical appliances cannot be operated on small scale PV systems. In this p...

Growing power demand and carbon emissions is motivating utility providers to introduce smart power systems. One of the most promising technology to deliver cheaper and smarter electricity is demand side management. A DSM solution controls the devices at user premises in order to achieve overall goals of lower cost for consumer and utility. To achie...

Home energy management systems (HEMs) are used to provide comfortable life for consumers as well as to save energy. An essential component of HEMs is a home area network (HAN) that is used to remotely control the electric devices at homes and buildings. Although HAN prices have dropped in recent years but they are still expensive enough to prohibit...
