Intelligent Air Conditioning - environmentally aware to help cut your gas bill
What is Intelligent Air Conditioning?
An intelligent air conditioner designed for efficient use of energy will:
It is able to sense where are the heat spots in the room - and direct its cooled air (or warm air) to the target (human)
It also meters the right amount of cooled air to its target (will be determined by the size)
It also tracts the target in real time so if the target were to move - it follows it
It uses advance infra-red sensors to tract
If the room is empty, it will throttle down or will shut off after a certain time
It is connected to the internet so it is also smart enough to be commanded from a remote position
It is enabled with an artificial intelligence module (through edge computing) to do machine learning and user preferences
Capable of being integrated with intelligent air ventilation to avert the spread of pathogens
Capable of running in an open space environment where there is energy leakage
As a result of ever infectious diseases like the novel corona virus coming to our lives, we would need to ask ourselves whether the air conditioning system that we had for ages should be discarded - the reason being that our air conditioning system was designed during the time when we had plenty of fuel to burn and also when no one would have been concerned about being infected with dangerous virus. Our conventional air conditioning system was designed for an enclosed space - without any form of ventilation. But since we have less fossil fuel now, we should really take a hard look at our HVAC system to see whether we should re-design the system. Perhaps we should have a system that caters to an open space or a space with ventilation? But how do we air condition an open space? Would we need to burn more fuel then? Not really, as we have a new air conditioning system that caters to an open space. We called it "Intelligent Open Space Air Conditioning," yes, an idea that many people have been waiting for. Patentagentip engineers have succeeded in designing a new air-conditioning system that is able to be intelligent enough to determine how occupied is a space and thence go to tune the air-conditioning efficiently so as be able to direct the cooled air to the occupant of the space. So if you have an open space or a space that have ventilation built in, the intelligent air conditioning nozzles will direct the cooled air (or warm air) to the occupants who might be sitting together or separately in a room space - and not directing the cooled air to the ceiling or corners of the room.
Individually select cooling
The Intelligent Open Space Air Conditioner is designed to be Industry 4.0 ready so that it can be connected to outside network and thus be commanded remotely - as it is the unit is able to self control without outside command. The best thing is that it will automatically control by itself once set and intelligent enough to sense how many people it got to cool and where - automation makes our lives feeling super comfortable. And when you can air-condition an open space, you will not need to worry about the spread of infectious diseases as you can afford to have fresh air ventilated in and out of the space. We will have less of the flu and people will not need to breathe in other people's vomit! The new system (first of its kind in the world) is designed like a ceiling fan but operates like a robot. The air conditioning nozzle is articulated on three axes, so it will be able to deliver conditioned air (hot or cold) to the place of demand. "Intelligent Open Space Air conditioning" is designed to save you forty per cent of your utility fuel bill. Will it be able to cool the Qatar World Cup Stadium? Yes, certainly, because it was designed for an open space environment like that of a football stadium - it will need to force cooled air from out of the seating position!
Air conditioning appears to spread coronavirus-but opening windows could stop it, studies suggest.
Opening windows in buildings, including our homes, may prevent the spread of the coronavirus, scientists believe
Experts in health, the built environment and microbiology at the University of Oregon and the University of California, Davis, made the recommendations by reviewing existing studies on germs including SARS-CoV-2 (the virus which causes COVID-19 disease).
They also looked at data on other members of the large coronavirus family of bugs which trigger severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) and Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS). They published their findings in the journal mSystems.
The team hope their recommendations will help those tasked with deciding when and how to ease social distancing measures as the pandemic continues. According to Johns Hopkins University, 1.9 million people worldwide have so far been diagnosed with COVID-19, more than 126,700 people have died, and almost 494,000 have recovered.

Open up your windows if you want to avoid catching coronavirus!
We are now capable of bringing air conditioning to an open space or space that have provisions of allowing fresh air to enter the environmental space. It also means that stale air (might be virus infested) can be filtered (to kill off the virus) and then exhausted. The new open space air conditioning system has two components. One of which is a redesigned air conditioner out-let nozzle (intelligent) and the other is a redesigned ventilation system that caters to the new environment.
New ventilation system
New Room Ventilation System - post Covid 19
The new ventilation system (catered for open space) is called 'Inflow-Outflow' system which will take into consideration the need to bring in fresh air either through a conventional window or an open door. This new system although being more costly will provide for an air intake and an air outlet system where the air will be filtered and sanitised before entering the space and again filtered and sanitised before being exhausted out into the environment. The idea is to cool a particular space whilst taking into consideration of an entry of fresh air and an exhausting of stale air (what people breathe out). Would it then be efficient for the air conditioning to take care of fresh air inflow and also the exhausting of already cooled stale air? It’s certainly not possible you may think because there will be a lot of leakages, yes? Well, that is where the new intelligent air conditioner outlet nozzle is designed to handle.
The new Industry 4.0 endowed Air Conditioner Outlet Nozzle
Designed from the ground up (to cater to fight spread of virus) and patent pending, the new Air Conditioner Outlet Nozzle is built with intelligence as it is able to detect how many spaces and which spaces need to be cooled in real time basis. Thus it is capable of running with high efficiencies as it does not waste energy trying to cool spaces which have no people like ceilings and spaces that housed the furniture. And when the environment changes like having people going in and going out at the same time, it will use its intelligence to gauge in which direction it will have to cool; this being done by the fully articulated nozzles that can change its configuration to deliver maximum cooling with the least amount of energy. So even if you have openings like a window or an opening door when someone comes knocking in, the intelligent nozzle will re-configured itself to train its cooling air to the new demanding conditions. In short, the new nozzle is intelligent and capable of detecting where the demand is and also determining how much to cool all the time tuning the compressor to run efficiently. All this is done automatically without having human inputs and when there is nobody in the room; it will automatically shut itself down and return to its standby mode. This new system is capable of a more than 55 per cent reduction in fuel bill when optimised.
The new Intelligent Air Conditioner is especially designed to suit the times - go greener. Engineered with passive intelligence, it is able to sense the amount of cooling in the room and able to adjust it according to the room occupancy. Thus it is also suitable when you have an open space or a space that is ventilated - as it is able to adjust the amount of cooling (also heating). As the air conditioner nozzle (is separate from the evaporater) is designed with a three axis adjustable framework giving it the ability to point the cooling air towards the occupant and point away or shuttle off when there is no occupant. The idea of adjusting its cooling (or warming) capability is to be energy efficient - thus it is capable of adjusting to the ventilation demands of the room space. If it ever comes to the situation where all the old air conditioning system is replaced with this intelligent air conditioning system (a huge task), then we would be able to save thirty percent of our fuel bill - air conditioning and heating bill takes away thirty percent what we pay for our energy use.
Intelligent Air Conditioning with integrated Ventilation System
When the intelligent air conditioner is integrated to the smart under floor ventilation system, the whole system will be able to control the amount of cooling with the right amount of air exhausting out, thus achieving maximum efficiency in energy usage. Air conditioner nozzle is enabled with infra-red sensors - to sense the target for cooling (or warming) and in a way to not waste on energy. The ventilation system offered by this system is through an ambient air (filtered and sanitized) inlet channel coupled to the nozzle outlet - inlet being best located at one side of the room. The air outlet is via a floor level outlet valve built under the floor - alternately the polluted air (possibly infected with pathogens) can be recirculated back after it has been filtered and sanitized via a stand alone mobile filter. If however there is a need to channel the polluted air out of the system, then a channel will have to be built to connect to the outside via either an under floor channel or via piping laid under the floor or near to the side of the room. The intelligent air ventialtion system also incorporates temperature sensors so that it will open wider (its valve) when the room temperature reaches a predetermine level associated with comfort levels.
Air Conditioning with Air Purifier on the floor
An alternative to getting rid of air pollutants is to use a ground base air purifier. Sitting on the floor,the air purifier will suck in polluted air and goes to filter off tiny particles and also santize the air before it is recirculated into the environment. The air purifier is of an intelligent kind as it is able to sense where the heat is and thence move towards the target with its powered (battery power) castor wheel, directing from an embedded microprocessor. It is also intelligent enough to move to the wall panel where it gets its recharging through a wireless charging unit embeded in the wall. Alternatively, the wireless recharging unit can be placed underneath the floor so as to assist recharging when the air purifier moves to position where the recharger is placed. The air purifier is also able to communicate with the air conditioner for adjusting the room temperature way down on the floor level; this is especially useful when the room is empty of humans as a way to save energy.
