Deep Gaussian process for inverse reinforcement learning

This is the MATLAB code for deep Gaussian process for inverse reinforcement learning (DGP-IRL) algorithm. DGP-IRL can efficiently infer about agent intention by observing its actions in the world, and learn to act in a similar way as the agent.

Sensing by proxy: occupancy detection by indoor CO2 sensing

Sensing by proxy estimates the number of people in the room using CO2 sensors. It’s more accurate than previous machine learning models, and could be used to improve the efficiency of demand-controlled ventilation systems.

Microgrid Optimization with District Energy Systems Tool

Microgrid Optimization with District Energy Systems Tool (MODEST) is Python-based software to optimize the planning and operation of a microgrid to improve economics and resilience. It also optimizes the energy retail rates in a district to enhance retailer profit and system reliability.

Please contact Ming Jin and Wei Feng for further details.

Reliable estimation of stopping time algorithm

Experiment can be expensive. That’s why we need to determine the duration of the experiment ahead of time. This is MATLAB implementation of the reliable estimation of stopping time (REST) algorithm. Given the precision and confidence requirements, it produces a statistically guaranteed stopping time, so it is easier to manage resources and project budget.

Automated mobile sensing for indoor environment monitoring

This is Python implementation of spatio-temporal interpolation methods used to process mobile sensing data to generate a continuous 3D evolutionary map of the indoor environmental quality. Also includes software implementation of robot operation system (ROS) code for TurtleBot2, and Arduino-based environmental sensing platform.
