Abstract
Altering indoor environment to increase occupants comfort may increase their productivity and reduce waste in time, energy and resources. This work attempts to understand occupants behavior and comfort to build a platform that visualizes user-centered parameters related to indoor environment in real-time using IoT. User-centered prototype platform was designed, built and tested. Gamification concepts was applied to increase participation. The results were visualized and spatially mapped to the 3D model. This platform may help users build better perception about their indoor environment,i.e in offices, schools, hotels and hospitals, using interactive content and games. Also, it may help decision makers to take faster and better decisions, relying on the abundance of user-centered data, which may help in quality improvement. A test with around 20 users was made to assess indoor and learning environments. Many have found the system useful and easy to use on their mobile devices. Users shared valuable feedbacks and ideas for further developments. The first experiment gave important insights for possible future tests.
