Ambient visualization of energy consumption information
AbstractWe present the eAMBI, an unobtrusive ambient visual interface for displaying the current electrical energy consumption information in real time. The system consists of a smart IP enabled electrical energy meter, a RaspberryPi embedded computer, a controllable colour led strip display and software components. Energy consumption data is stored on a service providerâ€™s smartgrid data server. This information is conveyed to the users by using various colour patterns in a subtle, yet informative way. A dynamic VU-meter like ambient lighting visualization was selected. The system is installed in a typical home environment and allows the users to perceive their energy consumption in real-time in an unobtrusive way and thus help them change their behaviour and possibly habits.
