Sensors in the Workplace: Impacting Employee Productivity and Space Utilization

Sensors have been deployed in commercial office buildings for years to assist with energy efficiency and building automation. However, companies are starting to focus more on their employees, aiming to deliver better workspaces to improve their productivity and well-being, creating new sensing needs. Assessing the opportunity for sensors in providing solutions for building occupants means identifying which sensing technologies will deliver value for the most important areas that affect employee’s well-being and productivity in a commercial office space. For this report, we focus on four main areas and the type of sensors used in each of these that affect building occupants' productivity, comfort, and the way occupants interact with their environment. These four areas are lighting, thermal comfort, indoor air quality, and space use analysis.
