This GBIG Experience App provides a platform for citizen science campaigns related to high performance buildings with regard to energy and human outcomes. Users will be able to report back on their experiences within a space by enrolling in specific campaigns. This platform enables data collection to demonstrate the efficacy of lifestyle interventions through a mobile app.
While we know a great deal about the use of specific green strategies such as LEED and Energy Star, there is currently not a widespread mechanism of reporting back on the success of those strategies to achieve their intended purpose.
This platform has the ability to support both geo-fence location services* and Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) beacons.
* Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
