Abstract

Energy saving is one of the most challenging aspects of modern ambient intelligence technologies, for both domestic and business usages. In this paper we show how to combine Ambient Intelligence and Artificial Intelligence techniques to solve the problem of scheduling a set of devices under a given set of constraints, like limits to the maximal energy usage (Energy Span) and maximal energy absorption (Energy Peak). We provide a method that can be used to schedule the usage of devices in a given environment in a way that respects the input constraints. We adapt an existent approach to scheduling for Ambient Intelligence to a specific framework and exhibit a sample usage for a real life system, Elettra, that is in use in an industrial context.
