Our society wastes much more energy than needed. The in-
adequate use that humans perform on electrical devices is one key reason
for this energy waste. The presented paper aims to prove that embedding
intelligence within everyday objects is valuable to reduce the portion
of unnecessary consumed energy which is due to human misusing. To
such extend, we have augmented a capsule-based coffee machine which
is placed in an office to back our assumptions. Using this device we have
devised an energy saving model that takes into consideration features
like how and when workers use the appliance along the day.
Additionally, we have simulated the model to demonstrate, through error
metric comparison (measured in KWh), that a big amount of energy would
be reduced if such intelligent systems were applied when compared with
a baseline approach. Therefore, this paper contributes with a set of early,
but promising, findings regarding how smart eco-aware objects can help
to save energy in areas where people inhabit (cities, buildings or homes).

  • 1. Will Eco-aware Things help us to Save the World? UCAmI 2012 Diego Casado-Mansilla, Juan López-de-Armentia, Diego López- de-Ipiña DeustoTech - Deusto Institute of Technology, University of Deusto http://www.morelab.deusto.es December 4, 2012Will Eco-aware Things help to save the UCAmI 2012 1/19
  • 2. What is this presentation about?Will Eco-aware Things help to save the UCAmI 2012 2/19
  • 3. What is an Eco-aware Object? ► An Smart Everyday Object with green soul. ► Reporter: ► Visualizes and communicates energy consumption to end-Users. ► Activist: ► Contributes to save energy autonoumously.Will Eco-aware Things help to save the UCAmI 2012 3/19
  • 4. Why we need more Eco-aware Objects?• More and more devices placed in our common settingsWill Eco-aware Things help to save the UCAmI 2012 4/19
  • 5. Why we need more Eco-aware Objects?• Energy is a ghost measure.• Devices drawn energy in STANDBY.Will Eco-aware Things help to save the UCAmI 2012 5/19
  • 6. Why we need more Eco-aware Objects?• We waste more energy than we should.• We misuse electrical devicesWill Eco-aware Things help to save the UCAmI 2012 6/19
  • 7. Why we need more Eco-aware Objects? ► Because appliance’s designers do not take into account how devices will be used: ► Where placed? ► How many people will use them? ► Different mindsets  different device’s usage.Will Eco-aware Things help to save the UCAmI 2012 7/19

  • 10. Empirical EvidenceWill Eco-aware Things help to save the UCAmI 2012 10/19
  • 11. Literature Review ► Technical approaches: ► Automation, Smart E-meters, auto power-down modes and domotics. ► Awareness Approaches: ► Brochures, good practices’ campaigns and e- consumption invoices. ► Feedback systems and fair competitions in social networks.Will Eco-aware Things help to save the UCAmI 2012 11/19
  • 12. Our StrategyWill Eco-aware Things help to save the UCAmI 2012 12/19
  • 13. Social Coffee Maker ► Shared device in a public space (Lab) ► Common in offices & homes. ► High power consumption ~40 kWh / year ► Exhibit Eco-modes: ► Standby ► Auto power-downWill Eco-aware Things help to save the UCAmI 2012 13/19
  • 14. Coffee Maker: Modes of OperationWill Eco-aware Things help to save the UCAmI 2012 14/19
  • 15. Our Approach: Eco-Aware mode ► Shift appropriately between the On-Off mode and Standby mode: 1. Divide the day in periods of 1 hour. 2. Collect usage data during 3 months. 3. Calculate the number of coffees that must be prepared for shifting purposes. 4. Use the dataset to simulate the e-savings approaches. 5. Use the optimal mode as objective function: Eco- aware mode.Will Eco-aware Things help to save the UCAmI 2012 15/19

  • 17. ResultsWill Eco-aware Things help to save the UCAmI 2012 17/19
  • 18. Analysis of Results ► The 3 optimization approaches would reduce e- waste when compared with the baseline (real- usage): ► Absentmindedness approach (off-mode 7pm-8am) ~15% of save. ► Auto-power down mode (boosted by EU) ~ 35% of save. ► Eco-aware mode (mixed approach) ~ 53% of save. ► With the e-save of Eco-aware mode (6,334 kWh in 41days)*: ► 25h of dishwasher. ► 10h of oven usage.Will Eco-aware Things helpportable fan. ► 251h to save the UCAmI 2012 18/19
  • 19. Conclusions & Future Work Embed green-intelligence within appliances is valuable to save energy. We need Eco-aware objects in collaboration with humans to promote a greener behavior. Redefine static eco-designs. They not take into account device real usage pattern. ► Devise a predictive model for the coffee maker ► Evaluate the behavior change and test awareness ► Compare the tradeoff between energy need for Eco-aware objects and the energy that they save.Will Eco-aware Things help to save the UCAmI 2012 19/19
