The CharioT Project: Energy Advice for Households

The Chariot Project has developed the Chariot Energy Kit (available here) to support people in managing their energy use. The platform relies on a sensor kit to capture environmental data (such as humidity and temperature), and a visual user interface to interrogate the data for problems, such as damp and cold. Chariot was a collaboration ...
