    Developing a user-centred control system balancing people’s comfort and energy Buildings are huge energy consumers of our society when providing people with comfortable living and working environment. However, most of them are currently not working efficiently, with respect to both controlling the environment and consuming energy. Current building control systems are generally based on simple control algorithms such as turning on air-conditioning when the indoor temperature reaches a pre-defined threshold. This simplified method will not provide occupants with comfortable indoor environment, while consuming excessive amount of energy.    This PhD project will be built upon inter-disciplinary collaborations between building services engineers and computer scientists, aiming to develop a user-centred building control system that...
