Sensing SEC

The Science and Engineering Centre (SEC) is QUT’s state-of-the-art home to the Institute of Future Environments (IFE). ViseR have developed tools and services to capture, process, and visualise the data produced by the SEC.

The Sensing SEC project uses a variety of technologies that enable QUT students and researchers to view and download live and historical data about the SEC. Datasets include:

  • Building services
  • Building occupancy
  • The Cube
  • Structure sensors
  • Weather

This work has been achieved through close collaboration with QUT Facilities Management, IT Services, Schneider Electric, and specialist consultants.

The project is presented as a web page ( Centre visitors and occupants to view data in real time and gain a greater understanding of how the building operates and how different services interact to provide a comfortable work environment.
