Arduino compatible development tool
This Arduino compatible Sensor Shield includes newest sensors relevant for Building and Home Automation. Including sensors for HVAC, presence detection, smart blinds, lighting control and indoor air quality, it paves the way for new capabilities in sensor fusion applications. Together with the optional microcontroller baseboard and the connectivity board (under development), it can be used in a KNX environment and can provide all relevant sensor values to control other actors like lights, blinds, shutters, HVAC and many more. With a reliable presence detection, it can also be the base for e.g. medical surveillance or intruder detection or intruder detection.

Demo-software and application examples
In addition to this RoomSensor-Shield, a demo software with application examples is available for the KIT_XMC1400-ARDUINO, the optional microcontroller baseboard.
This C-program shows how to interface each sensor in software and includes a PC-visualization tool.
The convergence of home appliances and home automation or even smart grid trends in the bigger picture, is becoming a must in a greener world requesting for power management tools.
