Abstract

Buildings cannot perform without a proper planning, execution and monitoring of Facility
Management services. Moreover, occupancy monitor procedures for cognitive buildings are
gaining momentum in performance optimization through dynamic adaption of indoor conditions
(e.g. temperature, humidity, shadings). In this article, the application of a similar approach
for automated execution of maintenance contracts (e.g. cleaning services) is presented. This
approach is allowed by monitoring occupancy, through an ultrasonic sensor network. The
methodology has been validated on a case study, concerning an office building in Milan, Italy.
